Thanks to a reader for sending the photo above from the Alamo Plaza Shopping Center. According to the Livermore Cyclery Facebook page this location is expected to open in a “few more weeks”. This will be their third location after Livermore and Dublin.

From their website:

Livermore Cyclery is a family-owned bicycle shop in the San Francisco Bay Area, with stores in both Livermore and Dublin, California. Livermore Cyclery maintains a large selection of high quality inventory, emphasizes customer service with precise fittings, and has a large service department staffed by extremely knowledgeable mechanics.

Founded by cyclist and mechanic Steve Howard, Livermore Cyclery has now employed four generations of the Howard family. Livermore Cyclery’s first location opened for business in 1976 in downtown Livermore, followed by a second location in Dublin which opened for business in 1994.
