Bar
“Road 34 is a combination bar and bicycle shop and, with both beer taps and bikes hanging from the ceiling, there’s not much distinction between the two. Whether you’re there to talk bikes, sip craft beer, play a game of foosball, or watch a game on TV, you’ll always find an open seat at the bar or community tables.”
