winter is over and spring has sprung ok winter is back no wait it’s spring for real this time the rainy season has come to the droughtridden savannahs well whatever, we’ll deal with it later. No matter what the weather is, you can feel that buzz in the air. Everyone (if you’re reading this far into the post [thank you, by the way, I work hard on these!] probably you moreso than most ) is ready to ride. That first glimmer of shining sun and that first touch of warmth in the air is bringing cyclists of all kinds out in droves.
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!

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.

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.

That’s right, it is officially, unequivocally and almost certainly winter. Pay no heed to these so-called “calenders” that say the first day of winter is December 21st, IT’S DARK. IT’S WET. IT’S COLD. For some, that means it’s time to fold up the jersey, hang up the helmet and pack up the bike until the sun starts to keep it’s head above the skyline past 4 pm again.
But it doesn’t have to be.
We’ve got a wide variety of cycling trainers to suit all needs and skill levels that will let you ride in the comfort and warmth of your own home. Stick around after the jump for a handful of helpful visuals with a special guest appearance from everyone’s favorite mannequin, Manny. Read More »
