Bike Mart is a family-owned bike shop in Fort Worth at the Clearfork Trailhead. It offers free bike inspections for all, but that’s if you already have a bike. Test drive any bike inside the store. Once you find the one you love, the staff will fit and tune it to fit your child.

Since you’re right there, take your new set of wheels to the Trinity Trails right outside the shop.
