“If you aren’t going to be different, what’s the point?” – Iggy Pop
Since we first conceived of Sourland Cycles, the goal, every step of the way, has been to be a different kind of bike shop. Here is what “different” means to us:
Location: We are in the heart of Hopewell, in a town that supports cycling and preserving our beautiful area, and the gateway to some of the best riding around, road, trail, mountain. That’s why we called ourselves, Sourland Cycles.
Design: Sourland Cycles was designed from the ground up to be a bike shop that celebrates our Broad Street location. Preserving the historic Broad Street look while at the same time creating a modern, clean and exciting retail space to showcase bikes, promote cycling in all forms, as well as the work of local artists and craftsmen.
Commitment to Women: Sourland Cycles is the only shop in central NJ that has made a significant commitment to women cyclists. Our women’s section is not “the smalls at the end of the rack.” From Day One, fostering women’s cycling has been one of our goals. We carry the LIV brand from Giant, the only major bike manufacturer that has developed a complete line of bikes, from the ground up, specifically for women. Two of our staffers are women, one is our certified bike fitter as well.
Engaging the Community: We will offer more than just group rides. We have a network of all sorts of riders to help: commuters, mountain bikers, racers, family friendly, fitness, recovery, bike-to-school, trail advocates, ride across America. We will have classes on how to ride, where to ride, maintenance, advice, yoga, getting started, getting better, getting comfortable, getting outside. Just ask us; we’ll find the answer, probably from one of our neighbors.
Our Brands: We have tried to be different, right down to our brands of clothing, gear and of course, our bikes.
