30th By Bike

If, like me, you live and work on the 2 line, there's a good chance you either ride your bike to work or think about doing so. Which makes it perfect that there's a shop on our street that specializes in bicycles for transportation.

I actually had originally thought Velo Cult was purely a high-end fixie/hobbyist place and I was intimidated by it, but then I went there on Sunday and it turns out that "high-end" vibe is just the passion of the owner and team there for stuff that is well-made, and for doing things the right way. That kind of passion is why I love the businesses on this street.

As part of their focus on bikes for commuting, Velo Cult hosts an excellent forum on the topic, at sdbikecommuter.com.
