It has been some time since we’ve sent out a newsletter due to the shop being incredibly busy this summer and fall, and we’re okay with that. Thousands of bikes have come through the door, and we’ve had the pleasure of getting to know so many new neighbors as well as continuing to see familiar faces such as yourself. We quietly celebrated our 1-year anniversary in September – It has been fun, humbling, challenging and rewarding, and we are ever grateful to be here and have the opportunity to learn and grow thanks to your patronage and input. We’re not going anywhere, and we’d be pleased if you continued to enjoy the ride with us.
Whether you are thinking about prepping your bike for winter hibernation or keeping it rolling through the colder months, now is the perfect time to make sure it is cleanly functioning and corrosion-free. Bring your bike in anytime before December 24th and simply mention the special to receive 20% off our Deep tune package which includes all the necessary treatment to protect it from the colder weather. While you’re at it, check out our cold weather accessories and pick our brain about winter commuting – with 12 years of experience riding through bitter Midwest winters, we know a thing or two about moving through weather.
Colorado can’t decide which season it is, which we’re not complaining about! We did an unprecedented late-season ride in the high country yesterday and the weather could not have been more perfect. Daylight saving contradictions aside, we’ll play along with the time change. As of today we are enacting winter hours; Tuesday-Friday 10am-6pm, Saturday 10am-5pm. We will be closed Friday November 25thto celebrate the unofficial anti-commerce day known in mainstream culture as Black Friday.
BIKES ON BROADWAY
The Broadway bike lane data collection phase is nearly complete, and we’ve enjoyed teaming up with Bike Denver and Bicycle Colorado to get the word out. We’re hopeful that the construction of the entire lane will be complete by next Summer, and not just for selfish reasons either – Denver is changing whether we like it or not, and the way that the populace interacts with infrastructure is changing too. Safer bikeways means more comfortable and efficient travel for all types of road users, and the increased pedestrian traffic will benefit all businesses and continue to make Baker one of the best neighborhoods in Denver to hang out.
