Wow, it's been a little while!

Well, it's been some time since I've posted anything. Rest assured that the shop is still here. In case you didn't figure it out already, or hadn't heard via the RI cycling knitting circle, the shop is now a one man show (or flying circus, depending on the timing of your visit).

Mike has been spinning wrenches, and keeping Barak company, over at Providence Bicycle since last October. I've been holding down the fort and keeping the lights on over here. He is still doing a killer job helping out with the Wednesday night ride and the group has grown a lot over the last two seasons.

Things this late spring have been busy. Super busy, really, given the glacial conditions we all lived through followed by a swift transition into some gorgeous weather. As a result I've been remiss in getting around to updating anything but Facebook.

Now that it is (almost) Summer it's time to post a few things you may find interesting, including some sales and some ride info...

Local Rides/Racing:

The weekly Lincoln Woods ride is still on Wednesday nights, at 6:00! We meet at the covered bridge and roll out by 6:10 at the latest. The group has grown to roughly 20 or so riders each week with 2-3 groups for varying skill levels. If you haven't ridden Lincoln Woods in a while you should come check it out. The post ride beers and conversation are probably as good as the riding!

The Gnar Weasels are now coming to Diamond Hill! Yeah, you likely knew that already but it's worth mentioning that the race has been moved to the very local DH trails. This is guaranteed to be a tough old school mtb race. Bring your climbing legs, and a your tech skills, to town on July 5th! Bike reg link is here.

Speaking of Diamond Hill, did you know there is a Summer MTB bike camp? Well, there is, and it's sure to be a good time. Info can be found here, and here. Check it out!
