This is it. I’ve signed the lease!
Look for us in the Keller Place shopping center at the SE corner of Rufe Snow and Tarrant Parkway. We’re all the way at the north end of the complex.
Note the open area behind the center. You’ll get a few delivery trucks rumbling through, and a bit of employee parking, but it will serve as a near-in test ride area.
Beyond that, in cooperation with the City of Keller, Easy Street will install about 200 linear feet of trail to connect to the Little Bear Creek trail. LBC connects to the John Barfield trail that connects to the Cotton Belt trail and you can easily do a 20-mile out-and-back if you want, ranging to North Richland Hills (Micah will have a 10-mile all-trail work commute) or up to Grapevine.
If you are in the area, head on down and snoop. I’ve marked off the proposed trail and the Parks Dept. has offered to help with clearing in advance of the survey team.
In typical Mike Librik fashion, the layout will be bass-ackward. We’ll have showroom windows facing Tarrant Parkway, but the customer entrance will be to the rear, facing the test ride area. This will also give you a more private place to park. And that puts the bathroom in the showroom.
You can email Micah at Keller@WeMakeCyclingEasy.com, and a phone number is coming soon. Build out work always takes longer that you expect, but hopefully we’ll be doing business by the end of April. Hopefully.
If this doesn’t destroy me utterly and bring the whole enterprise down in a flaming ruin, its gonna be a blast!
Now the real work begins.
