Saturday Group Ride To The River And Back! 22.8 Miles!

saturday ride 9-12-15

So today I went out with Eric, Cycle Sports, and his two customers Jim and Brenda. We rode to the Delaware River and back. It was such a great ride. I doubled the amount of miles I normally do by double. I’m a little sore because of crappy bike pants that are 15 years old (should have worn the new pair), but overall I feel GREAT!

Tomorrow is the Bucks County Classic bike race in Doylestown. I’m volunteering as a race course marshal to make sure people are safe along the course. Should be fun.

All for now.

Today, I went out on a training ride with Eric Cutter from Cycle Sports Doylestown and two other cyclists (Jim and Janice). We practiced riding in a group as well as how to deal with bumping and drafting.

Thanks Eric for a great time. See you next Saturday at 7:45am at Cycle Sports!


Shopping At A Local Bike Shop vs. A Regional or National Shop

confused by bikesIn Doylestown we have 3 bike shops. Cycle Sports, Bike Works, and Bike Line. They all are great shops, but the first two are just single stores and not a chain. Bike Line is a larger regional chain.

I like to shop local and support local shops, but I’ve found that I like the guys at BIke Line too. So I’m torn. I want to patronize the small shops, but I don’t want to stick my nose up to the great guys at the regional store. Especially since they’ve been so good to me.

As of right now, I’m trying to patronize all three. We’ll see if I can settle on my favorite and I’ll report back.
