Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t stay active on your bike!
Did you know we have a weekly Fat Bike Friendly Ride every Saturday, trail conditions permitting? We bike snow, cold, wind, and freaky, spring-like, mid-winter weather with the same “ya-HOOOOOOO!!” spirit.
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: You never know when those priceless spring-like days will pop up. Don’t get caught short with your bike ride-UNready – have your bike tuned up now. That way, when Mother Nature decides to bestow kindness upon us Michiganders, you will be rollin’ hassle-free!
FYI: This week, we will be riding the trails at Brighton Recreation Area. We will meet at the Bishop Lake trail head at 8:45 AM and rolling at 9 AM. There will be two separate groups to accommodate all skill levels. The A group will be riding the entire system this week. The B group is TBD. If you have not filled out a waiver for 2019, it’s necessary to do so. There will be some available at the trail head, or stop by the shop to fill one out beforehand.
If you don’t follow our Facebook page, you really should! Not only can you get the latest updates on winter rides, but plenty of other awesome information about everything else we have brewing at the shop. Not to mention the many bicycle-related memes shared by Shaun, Leslie and Andy… it’s not official, exactly, but there seems to be a battle for whose posts get the most likes. (Not that we’re keeping track — cough, cough.)

Winter Clinic Series
Come one, come all… and invite your friends… to our fun-filled, educational bike clinics. Did we mention they are FREE?
Winter blues? Forget about it! You’ll be too busy learning cool bike stuff!
Our annual winter clinic series is underway starting TODAY!
First up is our hands-on Flat Tire Fix clinic with Shaun, running this evening and again on Saturday morning. Bring along your wheel for some hands-on practice, or use one of ours. Required: Please bring along tire levers, patch kit, inner tube, and hand pump and/or CO2 inflator. Don’t have ‘em – don’t worry! You can purchase them here at a discounted price prior to class. Sign up here!
