AKRON, Ohio, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Blimp City Bike & Hike ("Blimp City"), an Akron-based bicycle shop, today announces the arrival of its first shipment of cruiser bikes from Worksman Cycles, an iconic brand renowned as one of the nation's oldest bicycle manufacturers and unique as one of the few domestic bicycle companies to produce bikes within the U.S.
Founded in 1898 in New York City, Worksman Cycles has developed a long-held reputation for furnishing high quality, durable bicycles, not only for recreation, but also for industrial and commercial purposes. The company continues to weld and assemble its hand-crafted bicycles domestically – a rarity in today's cycling industry.
Blimp City is stocking Worksman Cycles' Wounded Warrior Special Edition series of cruiser bikes, for which 10 percent of proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to aiding service men and women injured while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.
"We are thrilled to be able to bring Worksman Cycles to our customers," said Blimp City owner Andy Bixenstine. "Worksman offers high quality bicycles while embodying values that we at Blimp City find admirable. And being a Worksman Dealer affords us the ability to provide unique products, including U.S.-made classic cruisers, trikes, industrial bikes, delivery bikes, vending bikes, high-wheelers, folding bikes, special needs bikes and more."
The addition of Worksman Cycles rounds out Blimp City's diverse fleet of bicycle brand offerings, which also includes Bianchi, Felt, Jamis, Kona and Surly. Blimp City offers the perfect bicycle for every cyclist – from cruisers and comfort bikes to mountain and road bikes, and everything in between.
