Tonight we ride! Looks like we should be able to sneak in a mountain bike ride before the storm hits. 615 meeting at Hurd Park outer lot. Daylight should be good to go, but lights are still MANDATORY in case we get caught out late with a mechanical issue.

Tonight will also be an intermediate ride only due to a couple ride leaders being under the weather. Beginners or more casual pace folks are welcome back next week when we can guarantee multiple ride groups.

No gravel ride tonight, sorry.

Thanks!

Listen up folks, I just left a 6" deep rut in my lawn while rolling my recycling to the curb. PLEASE do not use our local trails for the next day or two. Bikes, horses, and even hikers will cause ruts and tracks and damage. It's been a rough erosion winter for our trails, and additional damage now could make things far worse.

And please, if you hear of friends heading out, or returning with mud covered bikes or horses, please try to share some of your trail respect with them. If they don't listen, I hereby encourage you to let the air out of their tires or feed their horses large quantities of baked beans.

Hey Corinne Gordon you’ll appreciate this. ❀️

I had to move my car out of the driveway this morning and put it on the grass covered parking area at the bottom of the lawn. It needs to be towed out now because it sunk in over 4" this afternoon and that was before over an inch of rain πŸ™

The ground is very squishy. πŸ˜‰

Tonight, 630pm, free clinic on Optimizing Recovery with Coach Kelli. Please RSVP so we'll have enough chairs set up.

Check out this amazing crowd yesterday at the CCAP demonstration at East Hampton Middle School. We're very excited to be a part of the new middle school cycling team, and the enthusiasm shown by the student yesterday was very promising.

Remember, we've got a meet and greet meeting next Wednesday at 6 at the shop for any local kids who are not in EHHS or EHMS and art interested in learning more about bike racing!

Very excited to share the great new business proposed venture, hopefully coming to the Village Center from the fine folks at Fat Orange Cat Brew Co.!! Can't wait to share my support at the Town council meeting on April 3rd. Congratulations Mike and Sheila!Thank you East Hampton P & Z for being so receptive and positive toward our new endeavor, proposed for a Village Center business at 91 Main St:

DEXTER'S TUNES TALES & ALES:
A used book and record shop where you can enjoy a pint of FOC beer or a cup of CT wine, shop, read, listen to music or just chat with friends. DEXTER'S will combine Mike's passion for beer with my (Sheila's) LOVE for books and records.
Public hearing is set for April 3rd. THANK YOU!

I was truly hoping I wouldn't have to write this post, but the proposed China tariffs will go into effect March 1st unless we get a Trump tweet telling us otherwise. If these tariffs are enacted, most bike and bike part prices will increase by 25% overnight. Manufacturers are scrambling to shift production to other countries, but this process takes time.

The take home message is that if you're thinking of buying a new bike this spring, there is significant financial incentive to do so in the next week. We have a great selection of bikes in stock, and we can get most models in within 24 hours, so come on down if you'd like to discuss some new wheels for the upcoming season. This is not a scare tactic or a sales pitch...this is just the unfortunate reality.

In happier news, here a couple of our junior riders from this past season. The team practices start in mid-March for the spring season, so if you have a young rider who might want to try out bike racing this year, give a call to the shop or check out CCAP online!

I think Giant is shifting production to Mexico and the Redbull rampage riders are going to jump their bikes over the wall to get them into the US...

This is available locally from a friend in East Hampton CT. $9800. The engine alone is worth that much. Here's the details, PM me if you need contact information. Spring is coming and our Caddy is for sale!! We have had this car for 11 years now and it has been great, but now it is time for it to go. This car is the perfect beach cruiser, ice cream getter, country road or highway road trip machine. The body is solid, the frame and floors are solid, the seats have been re-stuffed and are comfortable. The best thing about this car is the drive train: the engine is less than 5000 miles from a crank-out rebuild and runs great. The tranny was newly replaced by the owner before us, and therefore has about 15k on it. The car goes, steers and stops like it should. The windows go up and down, the wipers and lights and horn work. We never got to the top: it is there, and will keep the rain off your head and out of the car for the most part. It needs a hand assist to come up. It won't keep the weather out of the car if it is stored outdoors. We normally took it out of the winter storage and put the top down for the summer and it stayed in the garage when not in use. Only put the top up if we got caught out in the rain. This is not a show car. There are a couple of places where the paint has a bubble, the door handles have been shaved (the poppers work fine), the side trim has been shaved. There are some blemishes on the chrome. The interior has been re-dyed from brown to black, and the dye has worn off in places (sunscreen takes that stuff right off). There is a radio, but no speakers. There is no heat - we disconnected it when the engine was rebuilt. No AC. As I said, this is the perfect car to blast down to the shore in. It would rule any beach town around. You can pile in your friends or kids and go get some ice cream - it's not so precious that you will have a stroke if Susie drops her cone on the floor or fender.

I need another old lady colored Cadillac. I miss mine.

Somebody could make an awesome roof rack system for a convertible!!!

As an owner of an old vehicle in no way is this a bad idea....

I’m in!!!! Totally Shawn Palmer!!!!

Absolutely fabbbbulous!

Sorry kids, but the world outside is a mix of super slick glaze ice and super slick mud. No ride tonight. Be safe if you decide to venture out.

Friday's rain will likely melt the ice, so Saturday and Sunday morning early should be good frozen conditions...

Fat bikes are great for snow, for mud, for sand, for rock, and for dirt. Apparently they are good for air too! Thanks to Brooks Nablo for the video of the new Giant Bicycles Yukon fat bike getting sendy!

Today is unfortunately another day to stay off the trails. Lots of rain last night contributed to the muddy layer covering the ice a few inches down. Riding off-road today will cause damage... There's no maybe, there's no "I'll be careful"... there is just trail damage.

No group rides tonight, I'm sorry to say. Fingers crossed that we'll have a good hard freeze Friday night and be able to get out Saturday morning while it is still frozen. It should be a perfect morning to get out on fat bikes... The huge tires really smooth out the frozen mud, and definitely minimize trail impacts if there are any soft spots.

Speaking of fat bikes... we've got a bunch, including the brand new Giant Yukon, so swing by and check them out! Thanks to @BrooksNablo for sharing this great picture of his new Yukon!
