Richmond Veg Fest Pictures!

We had a great time last weekend at Bryan Park, despite the heat. Thanks for all that came out to support the cause, eat some great food, listen to awesome music and probably try some foods that you normally wouldn’t even have thought to touch.

Free air at Ellwood’s!

air pump

If you’re ever near our store and in need of some air for your bike, scooter or baby carriage, we’ve got you covered. We just installed a new, all access bike pump out front of our store. So pull your bike up and fill ‘er up! The tip of the hose has a screw-off head that flips for Presta valves and Schrader valves. Also, please note that the pumps gauge goes all the way up to 220psi so when you’re pumping those tires up, go by feel rather than how high that gauge is going. We don’t want you to blow a tube!
