Happy 90th Bicycle Bill!!

Tuesday, October 25th was Everett ‘Bicycle Bill’ Stedman’s Birthday. He turned the big Nine-O this year and we threw him a party at the shop that bears his family’s name. The man of the hour was in attendance surrounded by friends and customers and couldn’t have been happier to see everybody.

Everett E. Stedman was born on October 25, 1926. He grew up in the shop that bears his family’s name and upon his father’s passing inherited the name Bicycle Bill. In 1952 bought the store from his mother and owned and operated the business ever since, until just recently when he became a partner with long-time employee Jim Walsh.

These days he doesn’t make it by the shop very often, which made this a rare opportunity to celebrate with a local legend. From Everett and all of us at the shop…thanks for joining us!

Group 1 – 25+ in the flats.

Group 2 – approx. 22 – 23 in the flats.

Group 3 – No drop.
