Where can you find the best bicycle shop in America? Why, in Peabody, of course...and up in Vermont.
Fit Werx 2, a specialty shop downtown over on Foster Street, and the original store in Waitsfield, Vt. were recently ranked No. 1 out of "America's Best Bike Shops 2013" by The Active Times, an online publication dedicated to active and adventurous lifestyles.
According to The Active Times' staff, the top billing came from readers, who were asked to vote for the best local shops across the nation. Fit Werx specializes in road and triathlon bicycles, bike fittings and services.
“We are honored to be listed as the Best Bike Shop in America. Peabody and Waitsfield, Vt. may not seem like the hot beds for road and triathlon cycling enthusiasts, but people travel here from around the world to work with us. We truly appreciate, and are thankful for, our clients making this happen,” said co-owner Marty Miserandino, sharing the news.
