    I live just outside of Carlisle Pennsylvania. Your closest store to me is the Harrisburg Pennsylvania store. I am also a member of a motorcycle group so I get to meet different people all the time. Everybody that I talk to in the cycling community would like to have a Cycle Gear Store in Carlisle Pennsylvania. I have 23 years of retail experience and am currently a facility manager for a retail operation managing 22 sales reps and inventory around $500000 and a fleet of 25 trucks. If a franchise opportunity is available I would like to learn more about it.
