ARVADA, COLO. – There is a new bike shop in Arvada that puts a spin on the old community bike shop model.
Owner Bob Matter opened up A New Spin on Earth Day, at West 64th Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard in Arvada.
His 26 year-old son, who has Autism spectrum disorder, inspired him to offer a place for everyone including those with cognitive disabilities.
“We want people to feel like they’re welcome regardless of their income level, their cognitive functioning level, their nationality; it doesn’t matter. This is a place where everybody is welcome and to be part of it and to create a community together,” says Matter.
Since opening they have received 80 bicycles.
