SEQUIM — Ben’s Bikes Sequim, 1251 W. Washington St., will be adding a 1,200-square-foot expansion to the shop due to an increase of inventory, product lines and demand from bike riders in the North Olympic Peninsula region, according to a news release.

The new space will promote rental sales to tourists who might need a bicycle to enjoy events, trails and rides each summer, according to a news release.
