Tim and Courtney, the husband and wife owners, are avid cyclists. Their shop, located in downtown Evanston, is the start and end for many group rides that head north for beautiful journeys ranging from 20-100+ miles. From downtown Chicago, it's a quick 30 minute ride to join up with other riders there, and there are quite a few who trek up there multiple times per week (including the author!) for morning rides. If you're thinking of heading up, tweet at Tim at @otherbro_tim and ask if there are any rides and what their start times are.
