Today is Teachers Appreciation Day and we would like to celebrate how important teachers to all our lives — whether we are students or not — by giving every teacher who comes into the shop today 10% off their bike tune-ups.
If you are a teacher — active or retired — come in today. If you would like to give a teacher a gift certificate thanking them for their service, we’ll give you 10% off.
The U.S. began celebrating National Teacher Day in 1953 when Eleanor Roosevelt persuaded Congress to set aside a day to recognize educators. It became a nationally recognized day in 1980 when National Education Association (NEA) along with its Kansas and Indiana state affiliates and the Dodge City, Kan., local chapter lobbied Congress.
