Come ride a Rocky Mountain and eat some sweet BBQ!

Be sure to head over to Foxboro, MA this Sunday for round number eight of the 2010 NEMBA MBAS ride series. We're going to be there helping out with the Rocky Mountain demos and of course riding some of the trails in the forest. It looks like there will be a few Altitude 29ers, Altitude 50s (26er), the Element 50 we have in the shop and a couple of road bikes as well. This ride was a blast last year and if you have never been to Foxboro you need to go and check it out. It's a great place to ride roughly 30 minutes north of Providence. The SE MA NEMBA gang did a great job plannign the loops last year, and the BBQ courtesy of Harpoon brewer Jamie Schier (and family + friends) is excellent and not to be missed.

In case anyone out there is wondering, our Tuesday night NEMBA ride at Lincoln Woods is still happening. We're now meeting at the park at 5:30, be ready to ride as close to 5:30 as possible! Call the shop for details regarding parking if needed but we are meeting in the same double lot we used for the last few years (the one nearest to the Twin River road entrance). We'll ride until the lack of daylight catches up to us, then we may switch over to night riding in Foxboro or somewhere else nearby.

Speaking of night riding we just received some of the affordable lights from Serfas. We snagged a few of the TSL-250 and TSL-150 lights. They are both USB chargeable, come with helmet and bar mounts and are self contained lights with no battery cables to worry about. I rode home with the TSL-150 model last night and it's a true 150 lumen light with a flash mode, as well as three steady beam modes in varying intensities. The 150 lumen light retails for $100, the 250 lumen model is $130.

In other shop related news we're having a sale until the end of the month. 10-20% off most bikes, 10-15% off all cyclocross tires and 10% off all Twin Six and other assorted T Shirts.
