Being located where we are, we’ve always felt a special connection to the south street bridge. This week, we’ve got some big news from our friends over at the Bicycle Coalition:
It’s a big step forward for our fair city, which, for our money, is already one of the nicest places to go by bike in America and hopefully a sign of more good things to come for quality of bicycle commuting life!

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.

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!

We all want to go for a ride in the morning, but we don’t always have the time or the legs for those longer, more demanding sessions. That’s why we’re inviting you to join us on the new Trusty Twenty Thursday Morning Ride: a fun and frisky jaunt covering about 20 miles in about 90 minutes at about 15 mph over varied terrain.
Long story short, the Trusty Twenty is for everyone who wants to got for nice little ride and still get to work on time. Whether you just got your first road bike or you’re a seasoned PRO looking for a fun morning ride, you’re invited to roll out with us. Proper equipment (i.e. helmets, full water bottle(s), cycling shorts & shoes, spare tube, etc.) is strongly suggested, as are good road manners and a sunny disposition.
Just like the other rides that leave from in front of the shop, this is a group ride wherein all riders are responsible for her/his own safety and no one else’s. In essence, the ride is like a pick-up basketball game at the park; people getting together at a specific time and place to take part in a group activity of which no one is in charge.
If you’ve got any questions, stop by or call the shop. Otherwise, we’ll see you Thursday!
