Kids bike options at Capitol Cyclery

Whether you're an extreme biker or someone who likes to stroll around town, Capitol Cyclery is willing to help.

Located at 1410 W. Hwy 30 in Gonzales, Capitol Cyclery is now open to the public.

The cycling store offers a variety of bikes to choose from, like Trek, which is a bike company that began around 1976.

"We have all types of bikes for all different purposes," Alex Pope, a bike mechanic at Capitol Cyclery, said. "From casual biking, like a Sunday morning family bike, to extreme biking, like dirt trails and hills."

However, you might have to make a stop in the Baton Rouge area to get some more intense biking on. Places like Comite River and Hooper Road have biking areas that offer off road trail experiences or mountain biking trails.

Both of these are a part of BREC, along with many other trails, parks, and nature areas. BREC aims to operate public parks and recreational facilities.

Aside from bikes, Capital Cyclery has some athletic wear, helmets, or other bike accessories to choose from. They even offer a few snack items to grab if you haven't had the chance to snack yet.

Although Capitol Cyclery is already open, they will be having their grand opening celebrations from September 7 until September 9.
