VMB hopes all of our members, friends, and their families are safe, healthy and riding as much as you can (while doing your part to stop the spread of this virus).
While we're all trying to practice social distancing, our bikes still need care, and you may need essential riding gear. Our local shops are doing their best to stay open, serve our needs, and keep paying their staffs. They've supported our events, hosted group ride, sponsored teams, and done a ton for our community. Now it's time to help them too.
Below is a list of shops, with updates on their hours and services. Several remain open. Some have shifted to curbside drop-off and pickup. A few are delivering products locally. We'll try to keep the updated as best as possible on the VMB web site and add other shops as they get back to us.
