Riverbend Cycles to Include a Coffee Shop

Last week we reported that Riverbend Cycles will be opening in the spring of 2015 at the Miller’s House at Spring Mill, an 18th century former home located between the Spring Mill regional rail stop and the new apartments at North Lane and Hector. We emailed with the owner, Mark Vaughn, who recently moved to Conshy. Here is what he shared with us, including that the bike shop will also include a coffee shop:

The community is what Riverbend is all about. We aim to help improve the lives of our neighbors by providing an outlet to get outside and explore the world around them and by promoting better health through exercise. We also believe in the idea of supporting local and we plan to work with other area businesses for promotions and events.

Riverbend Cycles will be a full service sales and repair shop. We will carry a diverse range of bicycles and accessories in a manner more boutique than your average shop, with a smaller number of high quality yet affordable products in an uncluttered and easy to navigate setting. Our experienced mechanics can work on anything from the 1950’s Schwinn collecting dust in your basement to your state of the art tri-bike. In addition to sales and service we will offer bike rentals for folks just wanting to try out the trail, see how fun it is to commute to work, or see if this biking thing is for them. But wait, there’s more! We will also operate the Cafe at Riverbend, a full service coffee shop with everything from lattes and french presses to donuts and juices. Our outdoor seating area will have wifi so you can check your email before hopping on the train or hitting the trail to head to work.

As we are a few months from opening we are still sorting out some details, but we are excited to call Conshohocken home.

This will make the second coffee shop located on the Conshohocken section of the Schuylkill River Trail (the other is The Outbound Station). Add in the Conshohocken Brewery Company and now a bike shop, the trail is becoming a happening place.

You can support Riverbend Cycles via Kickstarter.
