    At the Market: Bike Day at Midtown Farmers Market June 30

    Calhoun Cycle joins Midtown Farmers Market for Bike Day

    This Saturday is Bike Day at Midtown Farmers Market and we'll be there running the Bike Valet all morning. Whether you're looking for a way to get your veggies, berries, and baked goods home from the market via pedal-power, or just need a safe place to park your wheels while you shop—we've got you covered. We'll have a sampling of grocery panniers & shopping baskets on display as well as our carrot-colored cargo bike (The Bullitt, of course), a Brompton folding bike, and a utility bike ideally suited for market shopping. Fancy a test ride on the Brompton? Interested in finding a way to haul a canning session's worth of tomatoes by bike? We're happy to help.
