Doug and Naomi Teramoto are currently in the process of moving from McLure to Barriere. On April 24, they took possession of the building between the post office and the Blue Jar Coffee Bar and Bistro.
Originally from Ontario, and more recently from McLure, Doug says he was Canada’s first professional skateboarder. He has been skateboarding and biking for years.
Now, he and his wife, Naomi, are moving to Barriere and will be opening a bike shop – the Tricycle Trading Post. Their website is still under construction, but does have some information already up: www.tricycletradingpost.com.
Over the next month or two, Doug says they will be busy doing a few renovations and bringing in stock. They plan to be open sometime this summer.
One of the things the shop will include besides bikes, is RC Hobbies products. The RC stands for remote controlled, as in remote controlled cars.
The couple say they will be building a 1/10th scale race track in front of the store, and plan on another one inside the store; both as test and race tracks.
Watch for a grand opening announcement sometime this summer.
