Community is the core of all things Ridgefield Bicycle. “We have immense gratitude and love for our customers,” she continued. “They support the work of RBCo and have made this venture something quite indescribable, way beyond a business. Our customers have enriched our lives with grand adventures and true friendships, born of the shared love of riding a bicycle.”

“It is with great excitement and confidence that we are able to hand over the lead to our long time manager and friend, Adam Ray,” said Sean Dowd. “Jacqui and I will maintain equity ownership and remain on in advisory roles, but the management and day to day business of RBCo will be in Adam’s hands. Adam has been building this business with us since the early days. As our customers already know, Adam is a truly talented and experienced mechanic. He is the proven and trusted resource for all areas of bicycle sales and service. The Ray Family will be a tremendous asset to our cycling and local business community.”

“Erin and I are thrilled to take on ownership of RBCo. We will continue to provide a welcoming shop with high quality bicycle sales and service,” said Adam Ray. “We have been working on this with the Dowds for a while. We are excited and ready to go.” Adam and Erin live in Bethel with their 2 year old son, Cooper. They are expecting a baby girl in July.

While there is a change in ownership at Ridgefield Bicycle Company, the goals and hard work of the shop remain the same: to provide a welcoming, trusted and positive bicycle buying, supplying and service experience for all levels of riders.
