Velo + Iola, the new bike shop in Iola, Kansas, held its grand opening on April 29th. Despite heavy rains, a group of Team Velo + cyclists rode down the Prairie Spirit Trail to Iola, while cyclists from Iola road up the trail to welcome the new arrivals, followed by a gathering at the new shop, just off the downtown square, at 112 S. Washington Avenue.
Following a few words from Thrive Allen County CEO David Toland, Iola City Council member Beverly Franklin, and co-owners Vincent Rodriguez and Marco DeAngelis, the ribbon was cut to formally welcome the new business to town! (Photo courtesy the Iola Register):
