Pedal Pushers

Owned and operated by Dan  Ventarola, the County Cycle Center has been a Yonkers staple among bicycle lovers for 50 years. The shop has sold and fixed bikes for loyal county residents who rave about its customer service. In 2016, a 50th-anniversary celebration was held to honor Ventarola for his sincere dedication and two-wheeled passion for his customers and product. Of course, a lot has changed in 50 years. Here’s a look at some stats that reflect those differences:
