Hey folks, if anyone it's free tomorrow, the Tour de Lyme is looking for a volunteer or two to help out directing people on the mountain bike course. Not only will you work on a great event with the amazing people of SECT NEMBA but you'll get a TdL t-shirt, beer, and free food... And to sweeten the deal, I'll toss in an AirLine Cycles t-shirt and water bottle too! Post a comment here and we'll get you the details! ...

Here's wishing a very happy Mothers' Day to all the moms out there!
Speaking of kickass strong women, we had a couple very strong races yesterday at the BUBBA Trophy Series Bear Brook Classic Mountain Bike Race! Congratulations to Meg Pennington on a second place finish in the cat1 race of 22 miles, and congratulations to Sara Hunt on a third place finish in the beastly 48 mile race! Very proud to have you both on the team! ...

Tonight we ride mountain bikes! We are riding our new and improved race course in the property directly across from Paul & Sandy's, 93 East High Street, East Hampton, CT. 615 start, and please park at the "stone and mulch" area. See you then!
Our gravel ride leaders are all unavailable tonight, but gravel riders are all cordially invited to meet at the shop at 6PM for a self-led gravel ride.
Both rides are invited back to the shop afterwards for happy hour. ...
Also, reminder, this course is on private property, so please do not ride there other than during Stage 1/AirLine Cycles events. The fine folks at Paul's & Sandy's Too are being very generous neighbors to let us use this beautiful piece of property for special events, so please respect the property!
Thanks to @Rachael Constantine for sharing this photo, and kudos to @Jeremy Violette at really making that front tire last!
Holy cow, what a turnout last night! Good times, great work on the new sections too!
That’s why I didn’t see any cars at the parking lot off of Rt 151😳 Sounds cool...

Great news for the directionally challenged!! The Super Happy Fun Ride will have course markers at all the turns this year! Should you still have a computer with some navigation assistance on it? Yes! Should you have a cue sheet with you? Yes! Remember, some turns come up quickly... But these should make life a *little* easier. And isn't "easy" what this whole ride is about? That and irony... 😉
So what are you waiting for? Go pre-register! Now! And bring a bunch of friends!
1) reminder, Wednesday night, SECT NEMBA meeting at the shop, 630 PM. Come by to learn about local trail management, the upcoming Tour de Lyme, and more!
2) Congratulations to Eileen and Curt and a few other shop friends who completed the Five Boroughs Tour of New York this weekend! 40+ miles through all five boroughs with 30,000 of your closest friends! ...
This Wednesday, 630pm, join us for the SECT NEMBA meeting at the shop (Southeast Connecticut chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association). Learn more about how you can support local trails, advocate for rider rights, and meet a great group of fellow mountain bikers! Please RSVP so we know how many to expect. youtu.be/DNUyNX2zbEoA video about the New England Mountain Bike Association ...
Preowned bike day! It's pretty rare that we get used hybrid bikes in on trade, because they are such a perfect bike for the AirLine Trail, but right now we have a bunch in stock in a variety of sizes. Swing by today to check them out! Used bike prices start at $50!
We also have a ton of used 20" kids bikes with gears, so if your youngster is ready to move into the trail and needs some hand brakes and gears, we've got you covered! ...
