It's high time I mentioned the annual Lincoln Woods Fun Ride. This year's ride will take place on 12/12 at Lincoln Woods State Park, registration will be from 9 - 11:30. The permits are in, a bunch of lines have been leaf-blown and the route is taking shape in our tiny little minds. As per usual there will post ride chili, burgers and hot dogs. There is NO cost to attend and ride, we simply ask that you bring some canned goods for the RI Community Food Bank. Also, please note that the aforementioned post ride eats will be sold for $1 each to help raise funds for the Food Bank as well.
If you cannot attend the ride but would like to donate canned goods please stop by your local bike shop. Most, if not all, of the local shops have a big blue bin in the store for food collection. Any non-perishable food will work!
If you bring a couple of food items (snacky cakes, cheezy poofs, soup, etc.) in to the shop we'll hook you up with a nice discount, some friendly advice and we'll even let pet the shop dog! How awesome is that??!
In other Fun Ride related news we may have a few of the Rocky Mountain demo bikes available for test rides, assuming they aren't sold by then. If the shiny new Paradox is still here it should be around to be ogled and fondled as well.
If you have any questions about the ride swing by the shop or give us a call!

If not, no worries. We've got you covered! We just received our 2011 Twin Six threads today and they look pretty darn nice. These jerseys, and T shirts, make great holiday gifts for the stylin' rider in your life. We also still have good stock in Endura winter clothing (merino training caps, booties, gloves, jackets etc.).
Stop in and check out the new stuff or just swing in to drop off some canned goods (or other non perishable food items) for the annual RI NEMBA Winter Warmer Fun Ride. Mark your calendars because this year's ride is going down on 12/12. All the local shops were given a big ass blue bin to fill with food courtesy of RI NEMBA. Feel free to help us fill ours!
This years ride will be laid out by Mike and myself and will feature ~ 10 - 12 miles of singletrack out at Lincoln Woods. Post ride chili, burgers and dogs will be there for you when you get back. We're also collecting food items the day of the ride. Even if you can't make the ride but you find yourself in the vicinity the day of the event please consider dropping some items off at the registration table.
Also, don't forget that our Monday night bike path rides are ongoing! Join us for a 15 mph spin up the Blackstone Bikeway. Road, 'cross or fixed gear bikes are encouraged but MTBs are cool too as long as the pace is cool with you.

I couldn't resist the new Karate Monkey frameset, I just couldn't do it. I tried and all, but it's been a year since I sold my '03 and it was time. So, we brought in a complete 2011 Karate Monkey in the 18" variety, and I bought a frame and fork. Ride #1 was last night down at Big River before the RI NEMBA meeting. I had almost forgotten how much fun these bikes were to ride. The memory came back about 1 minute into the ride flowing down DNA trail. Like most Surlys it rides like a bike, nice and neutral and all around fun to ride! Swing by and check out the in stock complete and if it tickles your fancy we'll let you buy it, or we'll order you one in your size. Whatever works for you. See you then.
