The owners of Flagler Bike N’ Coffee Shop, Tom and Kelli Nugent, announced they have relocated the shop to a larger space in the same shopping plaza, according to a news release. The new location is 109 Flagler Plaza Drive in Palm Coast.
The company started off in 2016 at a small shop in Flagler Beach across from the Veteran’s Park. The following year, they moved to a larger location on Flagler Plaza Drive, knowing they would have to wait for a larger unit in the plaza to be remodeled. With the larger space, the company expanded their line of cycling products and services including E-Bike conversions, and they also expanded their workforce and athletic nutrition products and added a coffee bar.
The company has also expanded their hours. The new hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday.

Hot Yoga Lounge changes locations
Hot Yoga Lounge announced the moving of their studio to an expanded location across the street, according to a news release. The new location is at 25 Pine Cone Drive in Palm Coast.
HYL was the first yoga studio in the city. After experiencing growth over more than six years, and with the renewal lease up, studio owner Heather Doutrick made the decision to move her second story space to the first floor with a substantial rent increase or find another location. She found the new location about eight weeks later and purchased it.
"I am so excited about the new space," she said in a release. "Our new building brings a positive vibe that will support our strong yoga community."
