Dressing for Cold Weather Cycling: Cycling is a great sport to keep you moving outdoors through
In terms of materials, wicking fabrics such as polyester, lycra, and wool are the best. Stay away from cotton, which does NOT keep you warm when it gets wet. When it first starts to get chilly, cyclists may add a light cap, arm warmers, knee or leg warmers, and thicker socks. As it gets increasingly colder, you might add a base layer, long tights, winter shoes or shoe covers, a balaclava, wind and rain resistant outer shell, and long finger gloves. We have a great selection of clothing here at the store. Feel free to come check it out and to find out more great information. We want to keep you going this winter!

Indoor Training: Some days a little too cold for you? Consider an indoor cycling trainer. There are three main types of indoor cycling trainers: fluid, magnetic, and wind. Fluid trainers are the all around best, quiet with a natural road like feel. Magnetic trainers are quiet, but the resistance isn't perfect. Wind trainers have good resistance but tend to be loud. Our trainer of choice is the fluid Kinetic Road Machine, pictured here. We have them in stock and available to demo. Don't let the cold weather keep you from training hard!
Etc... Fall hours are now in effect! We are here Monday through Saturday, 10-6, closed Sundays. We will be closing at 3:00 p.m. on Halloween for family festivities.
