Gift List Filled Out By You To Help Friends And Family Shop!

For me and I think for a lot of other people out there shopping, finding the right gift for someone is not always easy.  Combine that with the fact that cycling is not everyone's hobby, plus lets face it as a group, most of us are a little picky about the gear we want makes shopping for a biker hard.  Then there is the guy or lady that has literally everything to do with bikes.  In years past we have tried to stock our shelves with bikes and gear that would make anyone happy, this year is no different.  What is new is that one of our friends recommended having a gift list filled out by you as a customer and then left here so that friends and family could stop in and pick an item off the list you provided.  We thought this was a super awesome idea because its a win, win.  Anyone picking an item off the list knows they are giving you something you want and you get gear that makes the holidays merry.  We'll have them behind the counter for you to fill out and then alphabetize them by your last name.  Happy holidays, see you all soon.

Road Construction Sucks!!

Just a quick note that if you are trying to reach us by coming from the North on Washington Blvd, it is near impossible to get here.  There are cones in the middle of the road and signs that say no left hand turn.  There are a couple of ways that are better for getting here.  If you come in on Mountain Road which turns into Harrison you can take a right onto 12th and then follow it to Washington and then take a right and head to the store.  Another route would be following Wall into 12th, taking a left and then another left onto Washington.  Either way is better than attempting a left off Washington, we see near misses every day.  Sorry its hard to get to us, thanks for the extra effort.

Basic Tune Ups On Special!!!

We have dropped our basic tune up price from $55.00 to $45.00 for individual bikes.  If you bring in two or more bicycles at one time we will do the same basic tune up for $40.00 per bicycle.  We are able to get basic tune ups done on bicycles that don't need parts by the day after they are dropped off but without question no more than two.  Its a great chance to get your ride in order for what is looking like awesome fall riding headed our way, see you all soon.

Pizza and Group Ride!

Usually this time of the year we stop doing our group road ride because of a lack of light.  Even though no one from the store will be able to ride at 6:00 a lot of the riders that have been coming are planning on continuing but starting earlier.  Also next week after the ride John is going to be cooking pizza for everyone so come hungry.  I have enjoyed riding with all of you and look forward to hanging out next week.  See you soon.

Last Group Road Ride, Road Construction!

Looks like we have good weather for tomorrows ride. This will be the last one that I will be able to attend this year. I was thinking though that just because I can't go based on store hours all of you are still more than welcome to use the parking lot and leave earlier if you want to keep riding together.

On another note if you are coming in from the North, road workers have done an awesome job of making near impossible to turn left off of Washington Blvd into our parking lot. Just a heads up because I forgot two days in a row and its infuriating.
