From Toddler To Pro – We Have The Right Bike For You

29th Annual “I’ve Ridden Every Day This Year!” Ride

That’s what you’ll say the whole day, and hopefully many days following as you start 2022 with cycling miles. No downside. Healthy and fun.

This ‘inclusive’ ride rarely has any dropped riders. From the easy pace of the casual new-hybrid-for-the-holidays rider to the over-achieving racer – we will have local leaders to work with the breaks and stragglers alike in this known-for-being-conversational outing in ‘possum country.

In the past we’ve had a great assortment of tandems, recumbents, and trikes along too. We’ll mingle a bit in the lot, check out each others’ clothing, bikes, and calves, catch up on the year and start in staggered groups when the clock strikes Noon. After a few gasps of the country air on our initial “beginners’ slope” start, many will know how much of a toll December’s parties took out of them. Because we’d like to arrange enough guides and leaders, and have enough pre- and post-ride refreshments, a nose count in advance (up til the morning of) is requested.

If you have temptations left over from December’s celebrations and the midnight before, we’ll provide table space and beverages.

The more you share, the less you’ll ‘wear’!

Start point is Mt Airy Bicycles, 4540 Old National Pike (Md rte.144),

Mt. Airy MD. Restrooms for changing available.

SPECIAL PARKING NOTE:

Please park on the wide shoulders of 144 as close as possible to cars in front and behind, our neighbor built a fortress so that lot is off limits.

SPECIAL COVID NOTICE

Masks required inside (and outside when social distancing isn’t feasible)
Masks suggested while riding ( Depending on temp, a face covering can make you more comfortable)
Be considerate when at the food tables
We encourage people to bring individually wrapped items, and to avoid dips (e.g – hummus)
or multiple people touching the same utensils unless they sanitize hands first.

Dear Customers,
As restrictions ease, we are coming back to ‘normal’ Due to the annual surge of service requests in the high season, we are implementing triage protocol in order to keep as many people on the road as possible.

Because parts supplies are still backed up from weeks to months, some items are on ration status. If something is ‘wearing out’ or you’re looking to bling your bike, we suggest waiting .

As time and supplies become more available, prices will start to come down a little like they usually do in the off season, the best time for cosmetic and elective surgeries.

Unlike most places with backlogs up to a month, we are still doing almost every job same day, Monday through Friday.

Before visiting here are some suggestions for better and lower cost service:

1. Place your name and contact info on the bike.

2. Air your tires. Over 80% of the bikes that come in with ‘flat’ tires only need to be pumped. Air seeps out weekly.

3. Wipe your bike with soap and water
4. Remove your accessories like bags, pumps, bottles, and things not bolted on

NOTE to Everyone:

Due to the current worldwide bike shortages, most stores are ‘out of bikes’.
Every few minutes the phone rings and people ask for a ‘specific’ New bike model.
Not happening. We say the dreamers are thinking August, routine optimists say September,
but insiders are thinking Thanksgiving-ish.
How short?
‘Craigslist ran out of bikes” said a caller, “I’m knocking on neighbors’ doors” said another.

We have thousands of bikes!
Thanks to a 45-year hoarding disorder. While you may not be able to get
as picky and choosy, you’ll be riding this summer. Really nice bikes, mostly USA from the heydays
just after the last shortage of the 70’s up till the current days. Going for the SAME prices as decades ago,
just adjusted for inflation, all fully guaranteed and including our legendary follow up service.

Do you Have a Bike?
Maybe one of those from the barn with manure on the tires, hay in the spokes, and MOLD on the seat?
How about SAME DAY SERVICE? While the ‘other guys’ are taking your bike away for MONTHS?!?
send up an email with what you need, what store is closer, and we will tell you when to visit.
See the service guidelines that include: clean the bike, air the tires, and tag it with your name

We’re holding off on elective surgery, blinging out your bike, paint jobs, department store bikes, and e bike work
until peacetime returns and we have some help.

What happened?
Seven day weekends, bikes being great for being physically distant, stimulus checks, not to mention (arrggh)
the annual surge of procrastinators who all but forgot about us and their bikes during the off season when
we were friendly, needed, the money, and prices were better.

Looking forward to meeting you and your bikes!!
