We told you that the The Daily Rider would be at the H Street Festival with hopes to open a shop on H Street back in September and now we're thrilled to report that they are bringing their stylish, urban bike shop to 1108 H Street this spring.
The Daily Rider will offer all the best in urban bike gear -- cruier bikes (including Bobbins & Pashleys), attractive helmets (including Yakkays), and comfortable clothing that you can wear on your bike commute and keep on all day long. No spandex pants with big padded rear ends, but all the best gear to commute to and from work or to stroll around your liveable, walkable, bikeable neighborhood.
The Daily Rider will not only be the first bike shop on H Street, but also arguably the first truly urban, stylish bikeshop of its kind in Washington, DC, making it destination retail for bike lovers throughout the city and for bike loving tourists in town for a visit. The shop will conveniently be located just steps from a new Capital Bikeshare location at the SE corner of 11th & H and comes to H Street from Capitol Hill neighborhood residents Loren Copsey and Beth Rogers.
They'll join a few other new daytime retail options on H Street this year, but will also be open late Thursday through Saturday nights to welcome foot traffic from the H Street nightlife scene, which seems like a terrific idea. Look for them between Taylor Gourmet and Little Miss Whiskey's early this spring.
