Thanks for your interest in Bella Bicycles!
Hello! I'm Alex Obriecht, owner of Race Pace Bicycles--and Bella Bicycles. We opened Bella Bikes in 2008 because we wanted to provide a professional shop that focused on the needs of female cyclists. It was the first store of its type in the USA, and as the popularity of women's cycling has grown, it has been a successful venture. Our customers have appreciated our expertise and our women-specific products.
Although the original Bella Bikes was in it's own retail space located adjacent to our Ellicott City store, we have expanded our offerings and we wanted to offer our specialized services for women in more locations. So, in lieu of a separate store, we now have large sections of our Ellicott City and Columbia stores devoted completely to women's cycling apparel, women's bikes, and accessories. In addition, our other three locations (Westminster, Owings Mills, and Baltimore) also feature terrific selections of these same high-quality, women-specific designs.
So, if you are a woman looking for knowledgable and supportive advice as well as a tremendous selection of bikes and apparrel designed just for you, please stop in to any of our stores. We'd love to help you!
Alex Obriecht, Owner
