Best Of 2014: Bike Shop

Having earned this award for six years in a row, Old Town is clearly the local favorite when it comes to one-stop shops that sell, assemble and service our two-wheeled companions. Whether you're looking for a perfect mountain bike to climb Barr Trail, or a commuter bike to reduce your ecological footprint, Old Town staffers like Evan Wedsworth can help you out. "We're also known for being a very environmentally friendly shop," says the sales and service specialist, noting how the majority of the shop's utilities are solar- or wind-powered and 75 percent of waste gets recycled. And while an exodus of aging hipsters to Brooklyn, Portland and elsewhere may have reduced the market for Fixies, the shop sells plenty of walk-along bikes for toddlers and hybrid cruisers for customers who range from teenagers to octogenarians. And yes, it carries unicycles. "We actually keep a few in stock," says Wedsworth, "just in case." — Bill Forman
