C&O Bike Shop-Hancock, Maryland

A great place for bike supplies, drinks, and snacks!

The C&O Bike Shop, located at 9 South Pennsylvania Avenue in Hancock, Maryland, is ideally situated between the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal and Western Maryland Rail Trail. The shop offers a wide variety of services, including bike sales and rentals, maintenance, clothing, gear, snacks, and drinks. In spite of its size, Hancock has become a cycling mecca in the area, and numerous riders flock to the rail trail and towpath. Lots of riders, naturally, make for a plethora of flat tires and other mechanical failures, and we have been victims of our fair share of problems. Fortunately, the friendly and knowledgeable staff at the C&O Bike Shop has been there to bail us out on more than one occasion. The latest was a couple of weeks ago, and we thought it would be a good idea to send a thank you to the guys at the shop. Keep up the good work!

    Tom doesn’t give himself enough credit….he changed the flat tire on the trail. We then rode another 6 or so miles, and the bike shop put on new tires for us. My tires were old and worn out! I had been tempting the fates for weeks, or maybe I was just being cheap!
