New Hampshire bike stores gear up for warm weather

In a normal year, said Lessard, business at the store at 33 S. Commercial St. tends to slow down by the end of October, picks up briefly at Christmas, then slows again until mid-February. "When people have their tax return money," or know they will be getting it, they come in and put a bike on layaway, he said. But that presumes the February weather that we didn't get this year, said Lessard.
That includes bike sales and tuneups and Farmer said he's instituted a 48-hour turnaround for service, which may make for some long days this spring for the technicians.
Lost and stolen property that cannot be returned to the rightful owner gets auctioned online by the site used by police departments throughout the country.
The departments bike officer interact with kids on bikes often, said O'Keefe. He said one of the important aspects of that interaction is that the officers are role models as adult riders wearing helmets.
