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.

Paris-Roubaix, perhaps the most famous and most demanding one-day cycling race of the year, was this past weekend. If you’re a cycling fan, you probably spent your Sunday morning with your jaw on the floor, watching Tom Boonen just ride away from the field aboard his Specialized Roubaix and take his record-tying fourth win in the event.
It was a masterful performance, and to celebrate Tommeke’s big win, we’re putting all our 2012 Specialized Roubaix SL3 bikes on sale.* In addition to the 2012 SL3 bikes, we’ve still got two 2011 Specialized Roubaix SL2 Apex bikes on sale. If it’s in stock, it’s on sale. The list of available bikes is after the jump, so check it out, come see them in person, and find out why nothing is smoother is faster.

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.
