It’s going to be a nice day in Michigan on Sunday, with temperatures in the mid-70’s… perfect for a beautiful fall ride! We hope to see you at the 14th Annual Tour de Livingston. The shop will be closed, so be sure to stop by this week for any last-minute TDL needs. We’ll re-open Monday at 10 AM.

The Cook Brothers: From Brighton to The Bridge
Leslie Cook and Mark Cook are on an epic adventure! On October 2nd, the two brothers left for a 5-day cycling trip from Hometown to the Mackinac Bridge. Follow their adventures on Facebook to see photos and highlights of their journey.
As of yesterday, Les stated, “I’ve made four 70+ mile days in a row for the first time in my life. Legs are jelly.”
Today is day 5 for these adrenaline junkies. They’re tackling close to 100 miles. Go, Les! Go, Mark! You guys rock.
FREE Winter Storage!
While no one wants to be thinking about inclement weather quite yet…
We’re offering winter storage again this year. Don’t have room in your garage, shed, or basement for your bicycle(s)? No worries! We’ve got you covered.
From October 1 through February 28, we offer free storage with the purchase of a tune-up. Use any or all of that 5 months. We just ask that you pick up your bike by March 1 so we can prepare for our busy Spring 2022 cycling season.
No tune-up? No problem. We still offer winter storage at $10/month. But we do highly encourage the tune-up over the winter so that your bike is ready to roll as soon as the nice weather hits. It will save you the trouble of bringing it in during peak season when our turnaround time is longer. Truly a win-win situation!
Bike Waves are coming to Brighton!
Great news for our community: Brighton has been identified as an area where more connections are needed and will be part of a program testing out “bike waves” over the next couple of months.
You can read more about it HERE.
Go-Liv-Co, Livingston County’s Non-Motorized Advisory Committee, has been pivotal in this and many other advocacy efforts. They work to promote and encourage active mobility via the implementation of Complete Streets and Trails that allow people to safely walk, run, bike or wheel regardless of age or ability.
