Catherine Illian, owner of Richmond Rides applied to work with Storefront to develop a storage solution for Richmond Rides, a new bicycle tour company that shares a small space with Cyclus bike shop at 2225 East Clay Street. Volunteer Evan MacKenzie developed three concepts to store 16 bikes and helmets. Each concept provides racks that can accommodate 14 bikes, while leaving room for 2 extra bikes in the space.
When not in storage, these bikes wheel around Church Hill on tours like this:
Our this tour of historic Church Hill, you will learn about the neighborhood where Richmond was founded through the lives of its most memorable residents. As you ride, you will also experience some of Richmond’s delicious eats and amazing views in this beautiful and historic city. Some of the characters you discover along the way include its celebrated and sometimes overlooked heroes.
