I am writing to let folks know what is happening with Hike, Bike, & Run.
I am the founding owner of the store. I sold the store in April of 2012. I left Payson shortly after selling the store. I rode my bicycle down the entire West Coast from Canada to Mexico in August/September.
I was in Oregon in October attending the United Bicycle Institute when I got word the store was in trouble, because of this, my family and I recently moved back to Arizona.
The store was healthy when I sold it. I never imagined that less than six months after selling, the store would go out of business. I don’t know the reasons why the new owner locked the doors and walked away, though I recently received notice the new owner has filed for bankruptcy. I am a creditor in the bankruptcy, and I have a secured lien on the assets of the store.
If you are interested in keeping up with what is happening with the store, please go to our new Hike, Bike, & Run Facebook page at www.facebook.com/hikebikerun. Though the store is currently closed, hopefully it will be allowed to re-open.
We want to help keep the store alive.
Mick Wolf and family
