Sprint Finish: Competitive Cyclist Heads to the Finish Line In Arkansas

Things will be rolling to a fast finish in Arkansas as Competitive Cyclist prepares for the move to Utah. The most common reaction that I've heard from local cyclists is "sad", and I share the sentiment as we lose a fabulous resource and watch many of our friends prepare to move away or deal with finding a new job.

When CC built this building, I worked with the mechanical engineer and contractor. As the building shaped up, it seemed impossibly huge in comparison to their Cantrell Road location, but they soon ran out of room. If you're in the market for a nice building, fellow rider and commercial realtor John Martin, who providied this flyer, can hook you up!

I'm sure there are many good business reasons to justify Competitive Cyclist's move, one of which is that they already needed about four times the space to support their current business and planned growth with the Merlin line and a long-rumored deal with Canyon bikes. A new facility to support those plans would have required a tremendous amount of capital and, while CC is a successful and growing concern, they are in the bike business, not real estate investment.
