Seattle-based bicycle shop Cycle Dogs will begin selling its new bicycle accessory, Rooster’s Monkey, Wednesday in Ballard, the shop announced in a press release on Tuesday.
“We are excited about our new location,” said Nicole Kearney, owner of Cycle Dogs. “We hope the customers enjoy our coffee, sandwiches and smoothies from the new store.”
Kearney will open Cycle Dogs at 3333 S.W. Fourth Ave. today at 9 a.m. The store will have dozens of high-quality sneakers, a bike rack, chair and bench, face masks, tarps, blankets, and a variety of outdoor, indoor and exteriors.
According to the press release, Rooster’s Monkey has been available in retail stores across Seattle for the past 18 months. A sponsor of the Seattle Seahawks and a fixture in the community, Rooster’s Monkey is a bicycle for every stage of life—from beginner to professional mountain biker. The crowd-sourced website, which highlights and appeals to vintage and new bikes, allows people to choose Rooster’s Monkey from a pool of over 400 animal silhouettes made up of over 90,000 animals from around the world.
Sales and training will be handled by Seattle’s Ride-A-Long bike instructors, who will provide help and guidance for Bike Trails Seattle customers. There will also be local dance crews and teens coming out with gear for “Burst Fest,” the first vehicle racing event since Mayor Ed Murray inaugurated Bideani last month.
All stores are open from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Tuesday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays and Monday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Closed on Sunday. A special “Bike North Street” in Ballard will open at 8 a.m. Wednesday to take orders.
