We want you crazy people to ride everyday, 
so we have a super duper special just for you!

Just show us proof of your Freezing Saddles registration (or we can look it up when you come in) and we'll give you 50% off labor for any service - this includes tune ups, wheel builds, bottom bracket installation - you name it! For example, a performance tune, normally $160 is $80 and a standard tune, normally $90 is $45 for FS2018 riders.

*Freezing Saddles is a winter riding competition for bike riders in the general DC area, organized by random people who talk to each other on the Washington Area/ Bike Arlington Bike Forum. It runs from January 1 to the last day of winter with the idea of encouraging folks to ride all winter, even on the coldest days! Sign ups ended in December, so if you haven't signed up, you're out of luck for this year.

Saturday Social Ride, 1/12  --  10am - 12pm 
New for 2018 - Saturday Social Rides will take the place of our pastry and coffee rides (note - no Sunday coffee ride). Every week we'll do something a little bit different. We're keeping an eye on the weather this week - it's supposed to be warm, but rain possible as a cold front comes through. Likely destination is Vigilante or Shortcake Bakery. Bring lock, cash/cc, helmet.

Sunday, 1/13 - 9 - 11:30am Not a Mountain Bike Ride
Another new ride for 2018 are Sunday morning mountain bike rides at Fairland Regional Park, led by Laura our service manager (and former mountain and cx racer). BUT - with the freeze and thaw and rain thing expected, we're planning on taking a longer social ride to Union Market for breakfast/coffee. Bring lock, cash/cc, helmet! It will be cold so layer up! Next week we hope to return to our regularly scheduled MTB ride...

We're always looking for volunteers to lead rides. Contact if you can help out!
