I-64/40: Try Commuting on Your Bike

This year will be a mess in Saint Louis. I-64/40 will be closed in many various locations through the entire county. Many of the highways in Saint Louis will be a jam - even though they are expanding I-44 and I-70 to five lanes. Our role in this situation is a good solution - commute to work. Your bike may end up being faster than driving your car.

The I-64/40 Situation

We at the Trek Store have some favorite routes to different locations from all different areas in the county. Check out our Routes and try commuting to work this year.

West County to Clayton
West County to Downtown
West County to Westport

North County to Clayton
North County to Downtown
North County to Westport

South County to Clayton
South County to Downtown
South County to Westport

Trek also has a program trying to get more people on bikes for commuting purposes and general health topics in america. Check out One World: Two Wheels and see what a difference a bike can make.

Maintenance classes at Trek Saint Louis

December is coming to a close and the new year is just around the bend. To many people this means a time to start eating healthier and exercising; to cyclists it means a time to ready our bodies and bikes for the new season. If we get ready now, when the first beautiful day comes around in the spring we can be ready to ride.

Here at the Trek Bicycle Store in Saint Louis we want to help you get ready for the new season. We are offering two types of classes to get you geared up and ready to go, spinning and maintenance.

We have a spinning class offered every Wednesday night at 8:00 PM which has been going on for a couple of weeks now, but you are welcome to join at any time. Each week brings a new session. All you need is your bike and your trainer and $7 to join in the fun.

If you don't need to get your body ready for the new season, but your bike needs a little work, we are also going to offer a maintenance class every Thursday night starting on January 10th. These classes will be different every week. Each will cost $10, or you can purchase entry to the entire series for $50.

The schedule looks like this:
Jan. 10 - Pre-Ride Bike Check
Jan. 17 - Cleaning/Lubing your Bike
Jan. 24 - Rim Brake Class
Jan. 31 - Derailleur Class
Feb. 7 - Disc Brake Class
Feb. 14 - Wheel True Class

These classes will be held at the shop from 6:30 to 7:30 with the last half hour for question and answer time with Gary, and help purchasing any tools or supplies before we close.

Trek The Halls with Bikes a Plenty

The holidays are here and with them come great deals. Every Bicycle purchase is a big decision, and with that big decision comes big expense. Here at the Trek Bicycle Store in Saint Louis we know that, and we like to accommodate as well. From now until Christmas, we have our Red Bow Sale. This sale puts tons of accessories at a less expensive price, so your whole purchase can be a little less stressful on your pocketbook.

We also have a financing option available to you. If you are like many of us, you like to buy nice things during the holidays for your loved ones. Again, we like to accommodate: we offer financing to all (subject to approval). You can apply online, or feel free to come into the store and apply on the spot. We can get you approved and ready to roll out the door with your new bike on the same day.

The Trek Bicycle Store in Saint Louis would also like to remind you of a couple of things. Highway 40 - the ever present Saint Louis thoroughfare will be shut down in the coming year. There isn't a great public transit option and gas prices are very high. Why not buy a bicycle to get from place to place. We have baskets and racks to adorn your bike with. We all also have great ideas of how to use your bike with ease. Whether that is a safe route to work, or for you children to school, or even a quick way to a bus stop or Metro Link station. Your investment in a bike, and dedication to a healthier living style could save you thousands of dollars per year in car repairs and gasoline. We continue to work with Trek and their One World: Two Wheels Program. Talk to a sales rep today to find out how to be more Eco-friendly and save yourself a lot of money in the long run.

And if you already have a bike, and need to have it overhauled - Now is the time. We have a special on our complete bike overhaul from now until the end of February. Get your entire bike taken apart and rebuilt with new grease in all of the pivots and bearings for $75 off of the regular $200 price. Make sure to bring in the coupon for the discount.
