Dallas Cycle Chic has planned a holiday bike tour of locally-owned boutiques in the West Village and on Henderson Ave. Starting at Transit Bikes, the group will leave for Demerara at 1pm, then head off to Gypsy Wagon, Pandemonium, Another Time & Place, and We Are 1976, to return to the West Village around 4.
If you haven’t mustered the get-go to navigate the streets form the West Village or around Henderson, this ride should give you a few good side-street routes. Here‘s some good info to help you get to the West Village by way of the Katy Trail or DART rail.
And there will be snacks and drinks along the way to keep you biking and shopping in tip-top shape. Some stores will even have shopping specials for the cyclists (10% off at Gypsy Wagon and 60% off at Another Time & Place since they’re relocating their shop.) It’s the first of three anticipated Chic Boutique Rides around town so keep an eye out for more to come.
Dallas Cycle Chic, one of the newer organizations in the bicycle community in Dallas, promotes bicycling as neighborhood transportation without the need for special cycling gear or cycling clothes. So get out your holiday sweater, and your new holiday shopping shoes. Come early to Transit Bikes for a tuneup, a rear wheel rack, bike lights and stocking stuffers. The variety of shops include womens and mens clothes, bike-sized home furnishings and little doodads for friends and family. Bring your kids, your friends, and support your local shops with eco-friendly transportation.
