Town cuts ribbon on Merrick Bicycles


The Town of Hempstead recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Merrick Bicycles, the community’s newest business –– and its only bike shop.

The store offers an array of brand-name bicycles, including Fuji, Felt, Bianchi, BMC, Haro, Del Sol and Masi. Whatever cycle might not be in stock can be ordered from the manufacturer and shipped to the store within two days. Prices range from $129 to $429 for youth bicycles to $599 to $7,000 for road bikes.
