Century Cycles teams up with Main Street Cupcakes to offer sweet
treats for sweet rides

ROCKY RIVER, Ohio (June 24, 2010) - Main Street Cupcakes and Century Cycles are teaming up to offer sweet treats for sweet rides, celebrating the benefits of buying local when shopping in Rocky River for both bakery and bicycles.

The Detroit Road neighbors have launched a summer promotion that has an eye-catching pink and white Electra Townie Holiday 3 bicycle from Century Cycles on display at Main Street Cupcakes -- a cupcake box tucked perfectly inside its handlebar basket as a reminder that bicycles are an ideal mode of transportation for around-town errands. Main Street Cupcakes customers also receive a coupon good for $25 off their next bicycle purchase from Century Cycles.

At Century Cycles, the purchase of an Electra Townie or cruiser bicycle comes with a free cupcake from Main Street Cupcakes - a delicious way to celebrate their new wheels and remind Century Cycles customers about Rocky River's newest Detroit Road retailer.

This promotion is good only at the Rocky River locations of both stores while supplies last.

About Main Street Cupcakes

Celebrated with top honors in reviews, Main Street Cupcakes was the first of its kind in Ohio when it opened its doors in February 2007 with an ever rising list of cupcake flavors. Currently it's up to 200+, and they receive national accolades for this feat. Head Baker and co-owner, Sean Nock, whimsically whips up freshly baked cupcakes daily to tantalize his patrons' taste buds. You'll see 15-20 different flavors a day in their cases. Stop by early though: when they sell out, the doors shut! Pre-orders are welcomed and encouraged, and they also ship their cupcakes by the dozen across the Nation. Main Street Cupcakes can also be found on The Home Shopping Network (HSN). Their deliciously hip cupcakes have been called one of "America's Best Cupcakes" by the Traveler edition of Forbes Magazine, and they tied for Best Cupcake in Cleveland Magazine's 2009 "Best of Cleveland" edition.
Main Street Cupcakes...oooh so sweet®
