Family Bicycles Announces New Location, New Website, New Rentals

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwire - February 10, 2011) - Family Bicycles is really rolling these days. They haven't let a little snow stop them from making great progress for cycling in Kansas City. Family Bicycles has moved to a new, larger location in the heart of Downtown Waldo at 7410 Wornall Road, Kansas City, MO, on the West side of Wornall, next to "One More Cup" and across from "The Well."

When she first opened Family Bicycles in 2008, Theresa Van Ackeren, Owner and Managing Director, had a mission to make cycling fun for everyone of all ages. Just three years later, Theresa thought it was time to find a more visible and larger location to better foster and serve Kansas City's growing bicycling community.

The new, larger location allows Family Bicycles to expand the products and services it provides to its customers, as well as offer new classes. New for 2011 will be revamped classes for such topics as Beginner Bike Maintenance, Commuting, Bicycle Safety and Teach Your Child to Ride. The Beginner Bike Maintenance Class is held every Second Tuesday of the Month at 9am in the store's classroom. Two staff members are certified by The League of American Cyclists as League Certified Instructors.

Family Bicycles also recently changed its website. The new site can be found at Family Bicycles is creating a commuter and recreation site full of helpful information to make cycling fun and safe for riders of every skill level. 

Finally, The League of American Bicyclists officially awarded Family Bicycles the Silver Level Bicycle Friendly Business Award. According to Theresa, "Kansas City had ZERO bicycle friendly businesses. We knew we were bicycle friendly, but it is nice to have others recognize it too." For more information on the Bicycle Friendly Business program visit
