Offering free estimates, Larry’s Bike Shop of Copperas Cove has been open since 1979 with only one owner and operator, Larry Brooks. Located at 109 E Avenue E. Brooks, 68 opened up his doors when he was 33 years old because to him bicycles are environmentally friendly. “My dad was in the Army and was stationed here at Ft. Hood back then. I moved here to be with my family, and decided to stay around. It was a nice friendly town and I wanted to stick around and see what things were like here in Cove,” said Brooks. “I enjoy it so far.” Before bikes, Brooks was a civil servant with the government working with computers and as an accountant.
