BicycleSPACE announces the spring opening of an unimaginably large shop in Adams Morgan, an expansion progressing in tandem with the company’s upcoming shops in Mt. Vernon Triangle and Ivy City.
The Adams Morgan shop is located at 2424 18th St NW in a 6,400-square-foot storefront. At this size, the shop is the literal definition of BicycleSPACE, now enlarged to create a more opportune environment for bicyclists.
With this much physical space, BicycleSPACE will exponentially increase its ability to serve the greater Washington, D.C. market. It will also strengthen the D.C. economy by creating 40 new jobs, bringing its total workforce to 70+ employees.
BicycleSPACE anticipates an April move into the Adams Morgan property. In May, the company expects to open its 4,100-square-foot shop at 440 K St NW. BicycleSPACE anticipates a June opening at 1512 Okie St NE in the Hecht Warehouse District of Ivy City
BicycleSPACE is poised to become the largest bicycle retailer in D.C.
"We are bringing a vision to life," said co-owner Philip Koopman.
"We've long imagined a great space that could hold a fantastic selection of bikes. We envision a place full of vitality where our community can forge connections between people and bikes and the joy we share by equipping customers with just the right bike.
“We'll create a hands-on learning experience for first-time buyers. We'll offer an expertly curated selection of top-quality products for every interest and purpose, meeting the needs of urban commuters, athletes, adventurers and everyone in between.”
The most distinctive BicycleSPACE benefit is freely available to every D.C. bicyclist: an open invitation to become part of the dynamic BicycleSPACE community.
Through no-cost weekly rides and classes, BicycleSPACE provides space for bicyclists to build community, come together for social and educational events and share in the joyful, uplifting experience of riding a bicycle. Drawing hundreds of participants, BicycleSPACE’s larger social rides are one of many reasons why the shop was voted Best Bike Shop in the first-annual Washington Area Bicyclists Choice awards this month.
BicycleSPACE is currently operating a pop-up shop at 700 5th St NW at the corner of G Street NW.
