Happy Holidays! And, closed for a few days..

Hey all,

We're going to be closed for a few days after the holidays and we'll be open again on 12/30. We already started some reorganizing and the shop should look a little different. Now that we are NOT switching places with Honey Dew we're trying to maximize the space we have for the next year or so, or until the move does take place. The new layout should free up some space and help make things run smoother around the shop.

Once the dust has settled we're going to hammer out a winter repair class schedule. We're going to offer some free repair classes over the course of January and February, starting with the basics and moving into some more advanced wrenching as we progress deeper into the icy season. The emphasis will be on practical repairs to help get you riding again should something bad happen out on the road, path or trail.

Anyways, have a happy holiday and a safe new year!

Lincoln Woods Fun Ride is canceled!

Finally getting around to posting this here. The ride is off due to the rain and temperature up swing tomorrow. The potential to completely wreck the trails for the rest of the winter is the main reason we called it off. That, and no one really wants to ride in a cold rain. And who can blame them.

There is no immediate rain date (the 19th was too close to the holidays) but we are going to look into an event in the early season before the park is officially "open". It sucks to have to cancel but it's the right thing to do. We are still collecting food at the shop as are most (if not all) of the bike shops in RI. When you visit your favorite shop please bring some canned goods or other non-perishable food items! We'll be accepting food until the end of next week.

Depending on the weather this winter Mike and I (and some fellow LW regulars) will likely hold a show and go ride at the park. While it won't have all the bells and whistles of an official fun ride it will be fun. We'll probably host a little after ride get together at the shop with beverages and grilled meats. Let's hope for some nice frozen hard packed singletrack this winter! The last week or so has been great, we just apparently have some lousy luck...
