Local News

MCALLEN, Texas — A bike shop in McAllen says they have seen an increase in sales amid the pandemic.

Owner of Bicycle World RGV, Tracy Roberts, says they are averaging nearly 100 visits to the shop. However, safety guidelines only allow them to have a limited amount of people in the store at a time.

Roberts added that it is great to see the community invest in bicycles.

“If you are there at the parks, make sure you keep your distance and keep your groups below 10 so that everyone can keep going and using the parks together,” said Roberts.

Roberts advises customers that officials are monitoring public parks and they should continue to practice social distancing while on the trails.
