MUSKEGON, Mich. (Grand Rapids Business Journal) -- A downtown Muskegon shop looks to become a hub for bike fans.

CityHub Cyclery, a bike shop catering to enthusiasts and beginners alike, opened last week at 585 W. Clay Ave.

Incorporating sales, repairs and rentals — and a healthy dose of social interaction — the new shop infuses a hub atmosphere into the historic, renovated M.F. Carlson's Food Market building.

Julia Miller, co-owner of CityHub Cyclery, said she felt there was a niche for women in the bike store market, and decided to pursue opening a shop after being let go from a previous job and also based on her love of cycling.

"There are not too many women who own bike stores in Michigan, especially on the west coast," said Miller. "So I just always wanted to do it — and also to get more women into biking."
