An interesting new stop on Route 66 July 29, 2012

We’d heard about Main St. Grub & Stuff, a new restaurant and bicycle rental place in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., a few weeks ago.

Today, the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin published an in-depth story about the establishment nestled near the Pacific Electric Trail.

“There is so much history connected to Route 66 and we’d like to share it,” said Kathy (Uribe), a former district manager for Avon. […]

“We started thinking about what there is to do on the weekend that’s fun, family oriented and affordable and bike riding came to mind,” Kathy said. “You know many people like to ride bikes, but don’t own one for many reasons. These days lots of people have limited space with no place to store one.”

After renting, renovating and redecorating, the Uribes filled the space with a variety of snack foods, invested in 12 beach cruisers: eight adult size and four for children and in April opened their doors.

Bike rentals have become so popular for Main St. that the Uribes are looking to add to their inventory – including tandem bikes.

According to the restaurant’s website, it soon will offer beer, wine, and live music on Saturdays.

The big hook for Main St. Grub & Stuff is it offers direct access to the Pacific Electric Trail, a popular bicycle and pedestrian trail that runs from Claremont to Fontana. The restaurant sits near a new bridge over Foothill Boulevard (aka Route 66) that’s decorated in Mother Road theme.

Main St. Grub & Stuff offers bicycles for $10 an hour, although it gives a discount for the first hour if you “like” its Facebook page.

UPDATE: I put in the wrong link for the Daily Bulletin story. The link has been fixed.
