Introducing Ashmont Cycles!

Do you like to bike? Have you an old cycle in the garage that needs a little TLC? Well today we walked by the future home of Ashmont Cycles in Peabody Square (next to Ashmont Grill). This will be Lower Dot's first full service bike shop and we are super excited. The word on the street is that it is opening on March 1st. DotBike's write up says that Ashmont Cycles will stock a full line of Fuji and Linus bicycles for every age and interest, as well as helmets, locks, mirrors and other accessories. They will also repair all makes and models of bicycles.
Ashmont Cycles
551 Talbot Avenue, Dorchester
Located in Peabody Square at the intersection of Dorchester Ave, Ashmont Street and Talbot Ave. Just north of the Ashmont T stop.
