"Unless you have a second job or are independently wealthy, you can't afford to rent a space in Culver, which has hurt the community," he says.

"We're a community that functions four months out of the year. Whitney (Alvis, owner of the new Rideon building) understands that, like Dawn (Minas, who rented the previous Rideon building to Chambers), and wants to see it succeed because it's good for the community."

Rideon Bicycles first business to move to former Culver hardware space

September 13, 2014

Marshall County's only bicycle sales and repair shop is about to take on downtown Culver.

Rideon Bicycles, located for the past seven years on Lake Shore Drive in Culver, will relocate this fall to the former Culver hardware building at Main and Madison Streets. However, the shop won't be located in the space most familiar to former hardware customers.

Instead, according to Rideon owner Chris Chambers, the bicycle shop will reopen in the lower level of the building, with a courtyard entryway facing Madison Street.
