Two minutes from the 5 Star Trail, right by Offit Field, sits Flat Tire Co. Bike Shop, one of Greensburg’s latest small businesses to move into town. Their goal is to get ‘more butts on bikes,’ and to give back to the community through group adult bike rides and kids rides.
Flat Tire Co., which opened in August 2016, saw a need for a bicycle shop in Greensburg that not only offered a range of bikes from the basic to the exotic but where every customer is treated exactly the same no matter if they’re purchasing a $300 or a $10,000 bike.
Ashley Reefer, owner of Flat Tire Co., has worked in the outdoor industry for over 8 years and when it was time to open her own shop, her only thought was that it had to be all about bikes and the Greensburg community.
“I’ve lived in Greensburg for 5 years and there are so many trails and opportunities to bike in the area,” Reefer said. “We wanted to be the place any bike rider of any ability to come to, learn about bicycling, give one a try and get their butt on a bike!”
With the Five Star Trail near by, being minutes from road riding and excellent single track mountain biking with in 30 minutes; FTC is able to introduce bicycling to all ages. They want to help people explore Greensburg and surrounding areas by using the paths less traveled by bicycle. Join them for an any ability group road ride on Thursday evenings starting at 6pm. Congregate at the shop at 5:30pm to meet fellow riders from the area before splitting into groups based on experience and leaving for the ride at 6pm. This spring and summer get the kids on bikes and join Flat Tire on Tuesday evenings at 5:30pm for their Kid’s Group Ride, sponsored by Fischer Nutrition.
If you don’t have a bike yet or are looking for one, rent a bike for the 5 Star Trail starting at $10 a day or give one of their high end demo bikes a ride at $65+ per day. Have a flat tire, need new breaks, a tune up or a bike fit? FTC has a full service repair shop that will get you riding again in no time. Go custom and have one of their qualified mechanics with over 20 years of experience build a wheel set or new bike to your exact needs and specifications.
