For 36 years Princeton Sports' Columbia store has been a linchpin of the cycling community in Columbia and all of Howard County. For over 30 years from its inception in 1988, Princeton Sports was a supporter and volunteer of the Columbia Triathlon and later the Iron Girl Triathlon. For many years, first on Tuesday evenings and later Sunday mornings, Princeton's bicycle ride on the triathlon course helped train generations of Howard County bicycle riders. In addition, Princeton supported local cycling clubs - Mid Maryland Triathlon Club and Howard County Cycling Club - and helped start many other cycling events including the annual Columbia Association Bike About and the annual Bike to Work Day in Columbia. Alan Davis, the Princeton co-owner, has been a supporter and Board member of the Bicycling Advocates of Howard County for the past 10 years. It has been a privilege working with them since, like so many of the other Howard County bike shops, they are so community oriented. They will be missed.
