You’ll soon be able to eat, drink and shop at Pro Bike + Run.
Cadence Clubhouse, a café located inside the retail store at 9999 Kummer Road in Allison Park, just outside of North Park, opens this spring.
In addition to selling local produce, the 6,500-square-foot space will feature a menu with healthy food, coffee, juice and smoothies along with a full-service bar with 20 taps.
Owned by Craig Cozza, the business caters to runners, cyclists, hikers, kayakers and other adventure-seekers, and has five locations in the Pittsburgh area, with a large selection of bikes and running shoes. Cadence Clubhouse is the company’s first on-site eatery, but there are plans to open another in the Strip District by the end of the year.
Through Cadence Clubhouse, Cozza hopes to feed the mind, body and spirit of more than 35,000 Pro Bike+Run customers and promote local products.
The name originated from the term “cadence,” which is used to describe the rhythm of a runner or bike rider. As there is a cadence to running and riding, there is also a cadence to life.
“To unleash the full potential of a person, it is important that we go back to our old roots and disconnect with our phones to reconnect with what is real,” Cozza says. “It is in the presence of the here and now, that a person can really be in touch with their most authentic real self. At Cadence Clubhouse, we strive to be a community, better yet, a family of like minded, real, authentic, individuals all on a mission to be the best versions of ourselves and go out and better the world.”
Pro Bike + Run partnered with Verona-based Mechanic Coffee Co. to build and equip the coffee bar. Salud Juicery and Wellness/REV22 will provide the juices, smoothies and healthy bowls. A market will sell eggs, milk, honey and seasonal fruits and vegetables, while the kitchen churns out sandwiches and other farm-to-table fare.
Visitors looking to rehydrate after a workout can grab a glass of pH-balanced antioxidant water from the H2Pro machine. Beer, wine and spirits also will be available.
The building has outdoor decks and a 3,500-square-foot event space that opens onto the creek.
Pro Bike + Run also operates locations in Bethel Park, Monroeville, Robinson and Squirrel Hill. The goal is to eventually have a Cadence Clubhouse within all of the shops, and expand outreach to meet customer demands and needs.
