NEWTON, NC – Now you can get all your cycling needs – bicycles, accessories and servicing – in downtown Newton then head over to Jacob Fork Park for a ride on the Woodland Loop Trail. Newton is now cycling central with the addition of The Pedal Shack at 10 East First Street.
The cycling shop celebrated its re-location to Newton with a ribbon cutting ceremony on July 31, 2014. The new location offers twice the amount of space as the former location, owner Steven Fish said. He continues to offer a variety of bicycles, accessories and bike services.
Fish said, “I had a shop in Maiden for about three years, and a lot of my customers were coming from the Hickory and Newton area and some were coming from Gastonia and the Bessemer City area. So it worked out that I needed more room, so I moved here.
“I just want to promote the sport of cycling. It’s a good way to get fit. You’ve got mountain biking and road biking. And you’ve also got people riding cruiser bikes.”
Whatever type of biking you’re looking for, Fish wants to help you, he said. An avid cyclist himself, Fish has a wealth of knowledge regarding cycling and is happy to share his passion with customers and the community.
