Retail Highlight at Skyland Town Center: Trek

Retail within your community is an amenity that keeps on giving. Whether you have a grocery store, restaurants, or other services such as banks and pharmacies, it’s always such an added convenience to have these types of retain options at your fingertips. Fortunately, at Crest, we have all of this and more all within the community just steps from your front door! Today we are highlighting Trek, a globally known name in biking who has recently opened a retail location at the all-new Skyland Town Center.


Trek At A Glance:

Trek began in 1976, when a pair of determined guys set out to make the best bicycles the world had ever seen. Their vision was grounded in unswerving principles: the product would be of the highest quality craftsmanship and it would bring the joy of cycling to a broader audience. They offer kids bikes-adult, even electric bikes which are increasing in popularity!

Trek In Our Community:

Washington DC has become an increasingly bike-friendly city in recent years. With the increase in population density, cost of parking, and cost of insurance, bikes and electric bikes are quickly becoming preferred means of travel within the city. Many of the roads in DC also have bike lanes which makes it easier for bikers to share the road.

Crest features an on site controlled-access bike storage as an amenity for your convenience

With this in mind, having a retail location within the Crest community that not only sells all kinds of bikes, but also offers professional repair services, is a valuable thing to have. As a resident of Crest, we have a controlled-access bike room just for our residents within the community, meaning you have a place outside of the apartment to easily store your bike. Trek’s Skyland Town Center location is also looking at other avenues of community engagement in the future such as community bike rides and the like. They even go the extra mile and provide some great recommendations for sightseeing bike rides through Washington DC!
