Joyride Bicycles, which closed at the end of December, specialized in selling Specialized brand bicycles

Lincoln is starting off the new year with one fewer bike shop.

Joyride Bicycles, which was located near 16th Street and Old Cheney Road, closed its doors at the end of the year.

The owners announced the closing in mid-December on their Facebook page but did not give a reason.

The shop opened in April 2009, and the owners said at the time that they chose the location because of its proximity to the Rock Island Trail and Wilderness Park, both of which were within a few blocks.
