Hello cycling enthusiasts! We’ve got some exciting winter news for you. The long-awaited repair classes are coming back. This year, we’ll be doing 2 sets of classes at the end of February and beginning of March.
There will be a basic class, covering simple roadside repairs (flat fixes and the like) and an advanced class, covering more in-depth home repair like derailleur adjustments, brake adjustments and beyond.
You can sign up for both, or each class individually depending on your level of interest, though the advanced class will assume that you’ve taken the basic class or have an equivalent knowledge base already.
The classes will meet on Sundays from 9am to 11am. Basic sessions will run February 15th and March 1st and Advanced sessions will run February 22nd and March 8th. Each session is $20, you bring your own bike and we provide the tools, repair stands and know-how!
For more detailed information or to sign up, call the shop (we can take cards over the phone for payment) or stop by in person. Mailing list subscribers get first notice, but space is limited so sign up fast!

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!

While it’s not Christmas and there’s no leg lamp, it’s a major award! Obviously this would not have been possible without the support of our wonderful customers. Even if you don’t consider yourself a “serious” cyclist, in our eyes, everyone who has ever gotten on a bicycle and truly enjoyed it is serious enough.
As a token of our appreciation, we’re offering 40% off all in-store Capo apparel excluding Bicycle Therapy team kits. It’s serious clothing for a seriously low price. As always, please feel to call or stop by the shop for details!

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!

Up from the 36 Chambers! The famous Dirty Thirty (aka Dirt McThirt) is back in full swing for 2014. If you’re looking to put some speed under you, join Team Bicycle Therapy-Melitta for a rousing Thursday morning training ride. It’s demanding, it’s hilly and you’re on your own if you get dropped so come prepared. There’s no official ride leaders, but the team is on hand to keep it classy, keep it fast and most of all keep it fun. If it sounds like your kind of ride, join us Thursday mornings in front of the shop at 6:45. We hope to see you there!
