LINCOLN WOODS FUN RIDE 2014! End of Season Sale Bikes!

As you can see, the Fun Ride is serious business again this year. We at RI NEMBA, and the shop, seriously hope you bring food for the RI Food Bank. We also hope you have a seriously awesome wicked good time. Don't be a fool, bring some food!

Directions:

Take route 146 to the Breakneck Hill Road exit (AKA rte 123). Head East (that's away from where the sun sets, towards where it rises)! After you pass the Jehovah's Witness Church the entrance is on your right. Go through the covered bridge and hang a right, you'll figure it out from there.

Registration is from 9-12. Chili, hot dogs and beverages to follow. Bring a helmet, a bike and an appetite!

Rumor has it that the fine folks from NBX bikes will be there with a bunch of demo bikes. Foolproof brewing will be supplying the beverages and Stacy will once again be cooking up a ton of chili. Hot dogs will be cooked, bikes will be ridden, mistakes will be made and everyone will have fun. Seriously.

Other Stuff:

Ah yes, the other stuff... There are still a few bikes that need to get out into the wild this season. Peruse the list below and give the shop a call if anything strikes your fancy! All of the bikes below are guaranteed to make you super cool. Way cooler than that time the Fonz jumped that unicorn over Snake River Canyon. I'm serious, they are that cool.

2014 Salsa El Mariachi 3. Size medium.

MSRP $1700 - On sale for $1200. Seriously, buy this poor bike. It's begging to be ridden.


2014 Salsa Warbird 3 55cm.

MSRP: $1700 - On sale for $1275! I adore my personal Warbird 2, enough said.


2014 Salsa Spearfish 3, size medium.

MSRP $2750. On sale for $2200!

IBIS DEMO DAY - JULY 23RD 2014!!

Hi all,

We're hosting another demo day this year! This one will be our second with Ibis Cycles and will be on Wednesday, July 23. We'll meet at the shop around 5:00 for bike setup and leave the shop at 6:15. Much like the Salsa demo we will ride from the shop to Lincoln Woods via the road, bikepath and Chase Farm.

The ride will be roughly 90 - 100 minutes, around 12-14 miles, and there will be a slower paced and a faster paced ride available. We'll have some beverages from the fine folks at Foolproof Brewing in Pawtucket and hot dogs back at the shop.

Bikes available for demo (call and or email to reserve a bike/size!).

Ripley: 2 Small, 2 Medium, 3 Large and 2 XL.

Mojo HDR 650b:  2 Small, 2 Medium, 3 Large and 2 XL.

Hakkalugi Disc: 1 55cm.

Things you MUST bring:

A helmet! Seriously - bring a bike helmet.

The basics - you know what I'm talking about, all the stuff you carry in your hydration pack and/or saddlebag. Don't be that guy, or girl.

Photo ID and a credit card.

Pedals if you have a preference, though the demo driver will likely have flats and Shimanos.

Hear ye, hear ye!!

We have been able to schedule a last minute demo day with SALSA CYCLES!! This Saturday the 14th we will lead a ride from the shop over to Lincoln Woods to test some of Salsa's finest bicycles.

We will have size runs in the following models:

Beargrease
Spearfish
Horsethief
El Mariachi


Please call, email or message which model and size you would like to reserve in addition to your rider weight!!

Riders attending should arrive at the shop by 5:00 p.m. to allow time for proper bike fitting and suspension set up.

The ride will leave from our parking lot promptly at 6:00. We will ride through Chase Farm and enter LW near the Cross Course.

Rocky Mountain Bicycles Demo Day - Wednesday May 7th!

Well now, it's been a while. I had planned on posting a while ago about Springtime, sunny bike rides, a change in the weather and all that jazz.... But, since that hasn't really happened until very recently this here blog has been woefully neglected! On that note, here is some news you can hopefully use!

If you would like to demo a bike please arrive with some time to spare ahead of the 6:00 ride (this way we can get you set up properly), OR, arrive after 4:00 and feel free to do your own ride.
