Karen and Earl are the owners of Acme Bicycle Shops and want to get to know every bicycle rider in S.W. Florida. We are avid riders, and we believe in bicycling as a sport, exercise, social activity and as a serious means of transportation.
an image Karen EarlKaren likes to tour and leads a women only tour every year. Her typical tour is around 400 miles and lasts for 6 days; many of the ladies repeat each year. You may have met one of her "Wheelin Women". You will recognize them by their enthusiasm for bicycle touring in small groups.
Earl has toured with groups of all sizes from 400 riders to 1 rider. His favorite tour group is one. He enjoys the quiet and freedom of travelling solo. Alone he finds that he takes time to meet new friends and stops to enjoy the view anytime he wants. Earl is a member of the League of American Bicyclists and a League Certified Instructor.
Earl (with Karen's support) is a strong advocate for bicycling and bicycle safety. He has travelled to Washington DC to attend the National Bicycle Summit, and to Tallahassee for the first and second annual State Bicycle Summit. He is a Board member of the Florida Bicycle Association. Earl is the Vice Chairman of the Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee(BPAC) to the Municiple Planning Organization (MPO)for Charlotte County. Earl is a Certified Instructor for the League of American Bicyclists and trained by The Florida Traffic and Bicycle Safety Education Program to teach "Elementary Traffc Safety Education" to children in the schools.
Karen, Earl and their staff welcome you to their showrooms and stand ready to give you the exceptional service that you deserve.
