Invites Bicycle Doctor to
If you enjoy cycling and the farm-to-table food experience, there's no other ride that could get you any closer! You'll be helping to preserve the farmland and natural waters of Wisconsin while you bike along a rural route with stops at local farms where you can taste locally sourced chef created dishes. Click on the RED banner above to register. If you need more enticement, click on the button below. Oh! We forgot to mention---there's a silent auction and a party at the end! (Spoiler Alert: Look for the sweet items & services from the Bicycle Doctor.)
Thursday Clinic Series
For Ride Training
Many of you have participated in organized rides---and others would like to. There's nothing more chaotic than the beginning of a ride with hundreds, possibly thousands of cyclists and their bikes roaming into position and you looking around wondering if you have the right gear, if you know what to expected or may be feeling underprepared. We have put together a short series of Thursday evening clinics to be held at Bicycle Doctor. The goal of these clinics is to fill that void, or refresh what you do know, and answer your questions for a better experience with your bike, nutrition and equipment.
Clinic No. 1 - May 26th - 6:00 pm
Will you know what to do if you get a flat tire? We'll teach you emergency fixes for tube and tubeless tires. We will review a safety bike inspection process

Clinic No. 2 - June 2nd - 6:00 pm
Would you wear cut-off jeans and open toed sandals to ride? Or leave for a ride without a spare tube or tools? We'll show you the "kit" to have for both you and your bike for the short and long rides.

Clinic No. 3 - June 9th - 6:00 pm
When and what foods or nutritional supplements work best for your training? Join us as Brian Bennett (his list of races, runs and rides too long to include) shares his insight into that question.
Training Rides Out of Bicycle Doctor
One of our employees is doing their first RAW in August. To help support cyclists with similar goals, we are hosting a few training rides in the month of June and July.

RSVP and join one of our training rides. We'll share the ride information with you. It's about the miles, not the speed. Rides will be weather dependent and you will be notified if cancelled. Click on the links below for the routes.
