The Works Vol. II: a race to benefit Neighborhood Bike Works

Posted: April 17th, 2012 | Filed under: Race, Rides | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

Bicycle Therapy is proud to help sponsor The Works, Vol. II: a ride/race held in the city and with all proceeds going to support Neighborhood Bike Works, one of our absolute favorite local non-profits.

If you’re not already familiar with Neighborhood Bike Works, you really should be. Here’s what they do:

“The Mission of Neighborhood Bike Works is to increase opportunities for urban youth in underserved neighborhoods in greater Philadelphia by offering educational, recreational, and career-building opportunities through bicycling; it also promotes cycling as a healthy, affordable, environment-friendly form of transportation.” 

How cool is that? From their after-school programs, to their summer camp, to their employment opportunities for young people, to their work in the cycling community and beyond, NBW is a great organization and they deserve our support. We might be a little biased – both Andy and Toby used to work there – but can you blame us?

Long story short, if you support cycling and kids, and you’re looking for a something fun to do on May 5th, check out the race, the ride, the after party, and support NBW in the process.

The Specialized S-Works Epic Carbon 29 XTR is such an amazing bike that it’s hard to describe, in large part because there’s nothing you can really compare it to. I mean really, name another full suspension 29er XC Race bike that weighs just over 20 lbs and has won multiple world championships. I dare you. They just don’t exist.

You know what else doesn’t exist? ANY 2012 S-Works Epics. Specialized just isn’t making any more, and we just got rid of the last one available. In the country. Until 2013. Yup. We know.

But don’t worry, we’ve got the Epic Comp 29 (1/3 the price of the S-Works) in stock, in your size. Check out more info after the jump.
