Bike Rodeo Extravaganza!

Thanks to the College School of Webster Groves for letting me stop by to discuss bicycle safety, mechanics, and enthusiasm! I had a great time and it was a pleasure meeting all of you. Keep commuting and stay safe!

In honor of our BIKE RODEO this Saturday (info to the right of your screen), here is a video reminding you to wear your helmet and to not drink and ride. I would suggest bringing your kids' bikes and helmets on Saturday to make sure when this happens, they stay unharmed:

Super sweet!!

Congrats to Marianne for snagging a super sweet bike! She just picked up her new Bonnie cruiser that comes with fenders, and we installed 2 gigantic baskets in the back for her to commute with, as well as front and rear lights. She is also going to ride her bike with her daughter while taking her to and from school! Thanks Marianne, have some great rides!

Commuting contest - only the strong surive!

Alright. I have a challenge for you. Most of our employees commute to work daily and everyone thinks we're super strong machines especially wired unlike any human being...WRONG! We are every day riders like the rest of you, with aches and pains, good days and bad days, riding in heat and wind.

We're starting a commuting contest here at the shop for employees and customers. It starts September 11th and ends October 16th. All you need to do is ride to either work or school each day you are required to go, count how many times you ride your bike to your destination, and let us know each Monday so we can write it on the big board at the front of the store. We are not counting by mileage, and rather are counting by days travelled in percentage form. That way, someone who rides only 10 miles a day - 4 to 5 days out of the week is not penalized by someone else who rides 30 miles a day - 6 days a week. Capisci?

You don't have fenders? You need slick tires? No flat repair kit? Ah...I understand...good thing we carry everything you need to commute! Come by and we'll help you get on your way!

Prizes? Heck ya! The top 5 commuters win some super awesome prizes that we are not going to tell you about until we get closer to the end. Some sweet plans are in the works.

Call the shop at (636) 394-2453 or email me (Jessica) and we'll get you on the board!
