Where to Buy Bicycles in Raleigh: 2021
May is Bike Month
May is Bike Month in Raleigh, and the city has several ways to celebrate. We thought it’d also be a great time to offer a roundup of Raleigh-based bike shops, in case it’s time for you or your child to get a new one. One note from the Bicycle Chain that likely applies to some, if not all of these spots: “Due to unprecedented demand, there is a nationwide shortage of bikes and accessories. This has resulted in limited availability of bicycles and equipment at our stores. We’re doing everything we can to improve the situation. We have new inventory arriving daily, and we’re updating the website multiple times during the day to make this inventory visible to you.”
