SB Rides raising startup funds for new bike shop, physical location

Social Bike Rides LLC, a Shreveport-based business that opened in July of 2019, is on a mission to rewrite the narrative of Shreveport Bossier through fun, community-building activities. Spearheaded by owner and operator, Greg Powell, this innovative venture has already made a significant impact with its Glow Bike Tour Parties, spreading joy and excitement to residents of all ages.

The idea behind Social Bike Rides LLC was simple yet transformative: to introduce a one-of-a-kind attraction to the Shreveport Bossier area. Since its inception, the Glow Bike Tour Parties have proven to be an astounding success, bringing smiles and a sense of togetherness to the community.

The latest milestone in this inspiring journey is the acquisition of an iconic building nestled in the historic Allendale neighborhood. The building, located at 515 Pierre Avenue, belonged to Powell’s grandfather, Jerome T. Powell, serving as a gas station for the local community. Both Powell’s father and grandfather have close ties to the location and surrounding area. He hopes to continue his family’s lasting legacy.

The renovated building will serve as the future home of Social Bike Rides LLC, setting the stage for the business to evolve beyond its current offerings. With this expansion, Social Bike Rides LLC will transform into a full-scale bicycle shop, offering a wide range of services to benefit the Shreveport-Bossier area, with a special focus on the Allendale/Lakeside Community.

To bring this transformative project to fruition, Social Bike Rides LLC is reaching out to the community for support. Your contribution can make a significant difference in ensuring that this venture thrives and continues to positively impact Shreveport-Bossier.

Every dollar you contribute will go towards the development and realization of this remarkable project, helping to create a brighter future for Shreveport Bossier and the Allendale/Lakeside Community.
