Switching It Up in September
It’s that amazing time of year, where the mornings and evenings are slightly cooler, yet summer still exists! Perfect riding weather!
September always seems to break up the routine for cyclists. Many who have ridden road bikes are now turning to the trail, and vice versa. Whether you are racing or touring, it is a time to start taking the path less traveled, bringing out the bikes with knobby tires and hammering gravel roads and trails. For many, it is time to start thinking about the next season…. possibly shopping around for the next upgrade. And what a time to do so! Most brands already have full stock for 2015!
And then there are those looking ahead….but not as far. They’re thinking winter. Snow. SNOW BIKES?! Ever since Felt introduced the Double Double series Fat Bike, our phone has been ringing off the hook! We will have an awesome assortment of Fat Bikes going forward from multiple brands! Don’t be the one person in your crew who is sitting inside watching all your friends play outdoors this winter on 4 inch tires! :)
MC CYCLE ON SOCIAL MEDIA!
We know, we know. We’re literally years late to the party on Strava. But, better late than never! There’s not a more motivating training tool out there- simple and fun. Use the smartphone app, or come see us if you need a GPS! JOIN US BY CLICKING HERE
COLD WEATHER GEAR ARRIVING DAILY!
We are excited to add Endura cold-weather apparel to our lines this fall! This week, we began receiving the Men’s and Women’s Xtract waterproof/ripstop fabric jackets, as well as the Pro Jetstream III in men’s and women’s, seen below! A great multi-purpose piece to have your arsenal! Their Thermolite leggings are made with the athlete in mind: ergonomic body paneling and a sharp look…which as you know, is half the battle! And let’s not forget about the essentials! Gloves, arm and leg warmers, and BOOTIES! Endura’s MT500 Overshoe will GUARANTEE your feet stay warm and dry on the bike in all weather conditions. You’ve got to get a hand on these to see…these are some serious overshoes. Available in black or camo- shown below!
Also, don’t forget! STAY SAFE on the roads as the daylight becomes less! We’ve got a full selection of headlights and tail lights from Sigma Sport and Cygolite, and reflective gear as well!
GUNSTOCK NORDIC ASSOCIATION WEEKLY 5K SERIES
This popular annual series used to be just an honor system Time Trial.

Show up at 5 to register! $10/race, or EVEN BETTER, $30 for the next 5!!! For more info, visit http://gunstocknordic.com/events/xc-run-series.aspx We’ll see you there!!!
GROUP RIDES STILL ONGOING!
Monday Night Rides at 5:45pm at Ellacoya are still going strong, and will be until the daylight makes it no longer sensible! Stay in touch with our Facebook page for ongoing details.
Tuesday Night Rides go until the snow flies, and after September go from fast to a mellow ride. Get the lights ready!
Also, look for the return of our popular Fall Group Trail Runs, beginning in October!!!
