Gorham Bike and Ski moving downtown

The West End and Parkside neighborhoods will soon have a bike shop, when Gorham Bike and Ski moves out of their current home in Westgate (on outer Congress, the city's most dangerous designated bike route) to the site of the former Good Cause Thrift Shop in Longfellow Square.

According to a tipster, they hope to be open by Thanksgiving, just in time for the seasonal rush on studded bike tires. And skis, I suppose.

If you're visiting Portland from away, GBS also has a bike rental service, at prices from $20 a day.

Very cool, I've been hoping that something classy would fill this building.
