They have the benefit of proximity and a much larger captive audience.Not without precedent though. Abbotsford Cycles under Richmond station is a bike shop that doesn't sell bikes, and has been around since forever. With a solid market focus, the model can work.
Yep it's a sad state of affairs after observing this for a long time. It's almost like the only place where decent mtb parks can be built is plantations lol.New trails is something that everyone wants. Except the land managers.
