A Newton Kansas bicycle shop has opened with supporting bicycle tourist along the transam as one of their main goals.I tweeted this. I posted it at Reddit. I posted it at CGOAB. I have told all of my touring friends. I keep watching the video and hoping that people embrace this and DO NOT abuse the privilege. Newton Bicycle Shop receives the highest honor I can give at this time. BicycleHobo.com designates this shop as an ‘ALL STAR BICYCLE TOURIST.’ Watch the video and disagree.
Newton Bike Shop
131 W. 6th St.
Newton, Ks. 67114
Tel: (316) 243-2070
Hours Of Operation
Located smack dab in the middle of one of the most popular American Cycling Association [ACA] routes the owner peels back layer after layer of accommodation for someone in the midst of the trip of a lifetime. Makes me want to ride to Newton, Kansas just so I can buy a tube or a patch kit.
Special shout out to the video creator Charles Coderre who put together a number of touring videos that go along with his recent trip. Thanks Charles!!!
Special shout out to @hobocyclist who turned me on to this video.

The owner of the Newton Bicycle Shop will be riding in this years trans am with his good friend Charlie Summers. Charlie is a lifelong cyclist with two cross country tours to his credit. Recently he has lost his ability to ride due to a stoke. They will be teaming up on a tandem to complete this ride and promote cycling as a therapy. Good luck Charlie and James! I will be watching and cheering you on.
