The ever-popular Bagel Ride is getting a nice little tune-up for the fall. Following the route pictured above, we’ll be leaving from the front door of the shop riding out to the lovely little borough of Bridgeport, PA and then loop around back to Philadelphia proper.

It’s a nice 40 mile jaunt, about 3 hours in total with a small stop out in Bridgeport for Bagels/Donuts/Coffee/What-have-you at a nice B ride pace. That’s about a 15-16 mph average with no drops, inclusive to cyclists of all skill levels who want a fun Saturday morning ride. If that sounds like you, then we hope to see you Saturday mornings at 8:30 in front of the shop! We’ll keep going as long as the weather holds up and please feel free to e-mail us, call the shop or just stop by if you have any questions!

If you’ve been following the Giro, you know there’s still a healthy amount snow on the beautiful peaks of the Alps. Unfortunately we here in sunny Philadelphia don’t have the luxury of being witness to such majesty so late in the year, so we have to find another way to keep our hills nice and chilled.

To that end, we’ve got a nice, even-keeled Wednesday morning ride with some decent climbs to keep it cool, keep it fun and most of all keep it relaxed. Whether you’re looking for a recovery ride or you just want to get in an easy, pleasant 20 miles before work in the morning, come join us for Chill Hills at 6:45 am on Wednesday mornings in front of the shop! As always, if you have any questions, feel free to stop by or call the shop!

As anyone who has gotten a flat fixed here at the shop before knows, we pride ourselves on the efficiency, speed and of course quality we provide with out flat tire repair service. In order to continue providing that level of service, we have to raise the price of flat tire repair from $13 to $15, effective January 1st. Not a  significant of a jump, just wanted to give a heads up before the change went through.

To offset some of the increasing cost, for a limited time we’re bring back the ever popular Flat Fix Punch Card. $50 dollars buys you 5 flats, (that’s $10 dollars per flat for the less number-inclined among us) and the card is available now through January 15th so stop by and get yours today.  Limit 1 per customer.
