Following 7 years of growth in the Baltimore cycling community, local bicycle shop, Twenty20 Cycling Company, is expanding its Baltimore City presence. They will consolidate the Hampden and Howard County shops into what will become Twenty20’s most advanced and largest storefront to date.
“Our goal is to focus on the needs of our cycling community here in Baltimore City” explained Twenty20 Cycling owner, Norman Brach. “We will emphasize a rider-first approach to help people enjoy riding their bike.”
Soon to be located at 320 W. 29th Street, Baltimore, MD 21211 (at the corner of 29th Street and Remington Avenue), the company’s new city storefront will boast nearly 5,000 square feet, with ample dedicated customer parking. The new location looks to create a design and layout that focuses on rider development and accessibility at all levels first-and-foremost, rather than the more traditional product centric bike shop approach. The larger space will allow Twenty20 to broaden their in-house services to include an area dedicated to classes, coaching and instruction, a community meeting space and an expanded professional bike fitting studio.
On the move from the established Hampden neighborhood to the incredible resurgence of Remington, Twenty20 Cycling co-owner, Johnny May, added that, “Hampden has been an amazingly supportive community for us over the past 7 years. But we’ve come to the point where we’ve outgrown our existing flagship storefront in a repurposed auto garage. And to see the quality of growth that has been happening just around the corner in Remington, with the potential to build-out, is something that we are very excited to become a part of.”
The new store is a collaboration between Twenty20 Cycling and Seawall Development, which recently opened the highly anticipated Remington Row and it’s adjacent industrial, community-focused restaurant space, “R. House,” located directly across 29th Street from the future Twenty20 site.
Timing for Twenty20’s move includes the Savage Mill store closing at the end of December 2016, to allow construction to begin at the new Remington space. The Savage store will then remain open, by appointment only, throughout the month of January 2017.
Twenty20’s Hampden store will remain open into the Summer of 2017, while the new Remington store looks to overlap that timeline with its doors set to open by this coming Spring.
