BEST BIKE SHOP

Bishop’s Bicycles 313 Main St., Milford

Bishop’s Bicycles has been in business for 129 years and in Milford since 1971, fostering the customer loyalty that led to the store being voted Best Bike Shop at the 2019 Best of the East. “We strive very hard to make sure that we deliver to our customers what our expectations would be to remain the Best of the East,” says Lisa Linfert, who owns Bishop’s Bicycles with her husband, Greg. Today the shop offers bike service, from tune-ups to rebuilding wheels; bike rentals for those looking to ride the Little Miami Trail; and bicycles of all types, from cruisers to mountain bikes, for purchase. Linfert says the Jamis Citizen series is the shop’s bestseller, but the store also sells Pedego electric bikes; Felt road, mountain, fitness and electric bicycles; and Jamis road, mountain and fitness bikes, as well as an array of kids’ bikes. Bishop’s Bicycles has integrated itself into the community with a series of bike events for enthusiasts of all ages. During the warmer months, the store hosts weekly rides of the Little Miami Trail, conversation-paced rides on Tuesday that are ideal for families, and Thursday night groups for avid cyclists looking for a fast-paced ride. Linfert believes it is her staff that pushed the store over the top to win the category this year. “I believe that we actually employ the absolute greatest staff that we could have. We’re very customer-oriented. Extremely friendly. We take our time with our customers and make sure that they’re getting exactly what they need,” she says. “We make certain that everybody that rolls out our door is properly fitted to the bicycle for them, which is extremely important because if you’re not comfortable on your bike you’re not going to ride.” — CORINNE MINARD 2 0 1 9 : : E X P LO R E T H E E A S T S I D E
