Jersey Cycles at 510 Central Avenue, Jersey City

After lunch with David the District Manager of Central Ave SID at Noodlefan we went next door to Jersey Cycles to talk to Luca, bossman of the shop. After eating so well, I was tempted to grab a bike and take it out for a ride. This shop has everything you need if you are looking to get started or are a season pro. The guys that work there are also super nice, not pushy and they definitely know what they are talking about. Now go eat those noodles and go for a fun bike ride around Jersey City! [read more]

Five Great Reasons to #ShopLocal

Shop with a purpose. For every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $73 remains in the community. Those dollars help fund local wages, local taxes and other locally owned businesses, as well as donations to local non-profits. This compares to only $43 remaining in the community when you spend $100 at a non-locally owned business. Additionally, small businesses simply work harder to earn your business through product knowledge and personal customer service. Local businesses value, respect and appreciate your patronage. You can find anything you need locally and your local businesses give back more to the community.
