(Corrected at 8:30 a.m. Friday) City Bikes is leaving Barracks Row.
The bike shop at 709 8th St. SE will close its doors on Sunday, an employee told us over the phone us this morning.
According to neighborhood blog The Hill is Home, the company’s general manager said the company was not able to renegotiate its lease for the space. The manager added that the company would like to return to Capitol Hill at some point in the future, according to The Hill is Home.
The Barracks Row location opened in 2011. City Bikes currently has locations in Adams Morgan and Chevy Chase, and is planning a third location in Tenleytown.
