I hesitate to say that Red Bicycle is permanently closed, because there are hopes to remain a wholesaler (to send ice cream to Common Ground and Harvest Market, for example). As for the regular consumer who wants to stop by the ice cream shop? Sadly, that is no longer an option.

Losing Red Bicycle is a bummer, to say the least. There aren't any locally owned and operated shops making their own ice cream in C-U.

You can grab your pints and quarts at Common Ground Food Co-op or Harvest Market.
