Bike Shop 2

Jeff Carroll, owner of Ottawa Bike and Trail, says the Flint Hills Trail provided the impetus to open his shop, which sells and rents bikes, provides repairs and offers guided trail rides. In February, the shop catered to those with a literary bent, hosting author Anne Winkler-Morey, whose book “Allegiance to Winds and Waters” expounded on her 14-month, politically tinged bicycle tour of the United States.
