With its network of trails, well-paved roads and scenic views, the Camas and Washougal areas are fast becoming home to an emerging cycling culture.
Much of this started four years ago when Ed and Katina Fischer opened Camas Bike and Sport on Northeast Third Avenue.
“I opened the store out of a need in this area,” Fischer said. “We thought this community could support it.”
The couple, who have two children, had always talked about opening a shop, but wanted it to be strongly community oriented.
After moving to Camas in 2008, they found what they were looking for. Fischer quit his graveyard shift job with the city of Portland, and opened the bike shop with Katina in 2009. His dog Sierra is the shop mascot.
