South Mountain Cycle & Cafe
Whether you’re a seasoned BMX racer who relishes tearing up the countryside at top speeds or a Sunday-jaunt-around-the-park kind of cyclist, South Mountain Cycle and Café in Emmaus can help you gear up and get road (or off-road) ready. Owners Heather and Chad Balliet are eager to lend a listening ear and a helping hand to cyclists of all ages and abilities. “We want everyone to feel welcome in our home,” Chad says. The couple’s young son, Melvin, and dog, Diesel, are also fixtures at the shop. Another draw: the coffee bar and café that greets customers at the front of the store. That means you can relax and sip an iced coffee or a green-tea latte after wheeling in your bike for a quick cleaning or an Ultra Tune. Chad says, “Our customers can fuel up before a ride or come sit in the picture window with their family and enjoy watching the world go by.” And no stop at the shop would be complete without browsing the latest accessories for yourself (jerseys, tech tees, chamois cream) and for your two-wheeled chariot (seat saddles, rims, handlebar tape).
