Catonsville Rails To Trails (CRTT) would like to welcome and thank the C'ville Bike Shop and The Hub, two of the newest additions to Catonsville's retail section.

These bike shops have already made a significant impact on our community.

In October, they hosted a successful first Catonsville Oystoberfest, then donated $350 of their proceeds to CRTT and $350 to the Mid-Atlantic Mountain Bike Enthusiasts.

They also run a non-profit program, Changing Gears, turning donated bikes into reliable transportation for those who depend on non-motorized vehicles to get to work. Their mission is to repurpose bikes and people back into the community.

CRTT strongly encourages anyone purchasing a new bike or accessories during the holidays to shop locally at C'ville Bike Shop and The Hub.

Please consider donating your old bike to be tuned up and repaired by their experienced mechanics for donation to a person in need. There is plenty of free parking behind the store and it is easy to drop off bikes.

Please support businesses that support community projects.

Thomas Ajluni, president
