SIGH… THEY GROW UP SO FAST…
Look what a single year can bring… a new shop, a new adventure, and a son who catapulted from newborn to “hey, Mom, I’m going mountain biking with the guys.”
We want to put out a monster-sized “THANK YOU!” to every single one of you who celebrated Liam’s birthday with us on Memorial Day weekend. You just reaffirmed that you truly are FAMILY, and we love you for it!

So guess which family-friendly bike shop will be at the event, geeking out right alongside the kids? Us!!
Food, IMBA swag, guided rides… and Shaun’ll be there for bicycle safety checks, helmet fitting, and other educational bikery, so be sure to drop by with your kid(s) and say “hi!”
