Zoomers Bike & Gear to Serve Verde Valley
Cottonwood has been without a bicycle shop since Mingus Mountain Cycles closed more than years ago. Now, local cyclists Todd and Teressa Lang have committed to opening another bike shop and outdoor equipment store.
A grand opening date will be announced but should be late February 2007 says Store Manger Bobbi Reimer. The shop plans to carry kids bikes, cruisers, mountain, BMX, and road bikes as well as select parts, accessories, and apparel for cycling and other fitness pursuits. An online presence is planned for www.zoomersbike.com and will demo our products as well as execute online sales.
"Local residents must travel to Sedona or farther for specialized bike parts or service, which is a considerable deterrent to using the bike shop as a resource. We want to create a place you can trust to help select and maintain your bikes throughout life," says Todd Lang. "Store Manager Bobbi Reimer will be responsible for building long term relationships with clients, based in great service and trust."
Reimer and her husband, Phil, previously operated Sol Terra Sports, an outdoor clothing shop in Tlaquepaque, Sedona.
"We'll sell and service bikes of all sorts, from under $100 to $10,000. We'll also carry boutique clothing items for Cycling, Triathlon, Yoga, and other fitness pursuits. We want our customers to enjoy their clothing for its function as well as look great," says Reimer.
"Our shop will be a place you can depend on for friendliness, knowledge, and quality work. We plan to focus on taking care of the local cycling community and complement the excellent work of the Verde Valley Cyclists Coalition (www.VVCC.US) which has helped make Cottonwood a great cycling town. A revival of the Clarkdale-Jerome Time Trial with an associated 5K would be a great event," says Lang.
Zoomers is still hiring mechanics and sales staff, as well as compiling sponsors for the first annual Zoomers jersey. To get involved in the shop or advertise on the jersey, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
