Electric Assist Bikes Have Arrived

Electric Assist Bikes Have Arrived

Huge in Europe, e-bikes or electric-assist bikes have arrived in Canada and we have them in stock.┬áTrek’s line of Ride+ e-bikes is excellent and features Mountain Bikes, Dual Sports and Comfort bikes so there is something for everyone. These bikes are a hoot to ride, allow you to ride further and in more difficult terrain with the same or less effort and generally make riding more enjoyable. Ok, do you like riding so hard that your heart rate is bouncing off the limiter, your legs are burning and your lungs searing? Then you might want to stick with a regular bike–you know who you are (racers). Most people, however, don’t want to suffer on the bike and for them the e-bike extends the distance they can ride and allows them to ride to work without getting there clothes all sweaty. E-bikes are also great levellers and allows people of varying levels fitness to ride together and everyone can keep up. We have demos available and once you try one you’ll be hooked. Come check them out.  ...

Biketoberfest! Pre-Order and Save.

Biketoberfest! Pre-Order and Save.

Every year we have a promotion where you can order next year’s hot new bikes for a good deal. As you may or may not know, Octoberfest in Germany actually starts in September so this year we are doing the same (also some of the booking deadlines are earlier this year so we have to get our orders in sooner). Here’s how it works: Pick out the awesome 2017 bike you’ve been dreaming of, yes the one that’s the screen saver on your phone, computer at work, tablet, etc. Come into the shop and put down 50% and we’ll add it to our booking order. It will come in between February and April (varies with manufacturer), we build it up and you come in, pay the balance and pick up your new bike. You’ll be ready to ride before the snow melts. Easy. The discount is 10% off and it ends the end of October**. Drop by the shop for the 2017 prices for Trek, Marin, Yeti, BMC and Ibis or drop us a line and we’d be happy to get you pricing. This deal is only for bikes over $2000. Any questions, get in touch here. **Except Ibis — orders for those end October 15th so don’t wait....
Trail Maintenance Wed July 8

Trail Maintenance Wed July 8

Given the huge amount of time we spend riding the trails in the river valley, a few years ago the club thought it a good idea to put something back in the form of some trail days. In cooperation with the City of Edmonton and the Edmonton Mountain Bike Alliance, Hardcore Cycling Club adopted the trails in the area below Saskatchewan Drive from the Walterdale Bridge to the Old Timer’s Cabin. Our second Trail Day of 2015 will be Wednesday July 8th and will be in place of the ride. Come help maintain the trails we love to ride. After we will retire well-deserved for adult beverages and snacks. Work Starts at 6:30pm Meet at Queen Elizabeth Park parking lot a bit before 6:30 Bring if you got ’em: hedge trimmers, shovels, Pulaskis, rakes, work gloves, bug spray, hydration and wear enclosed-toe shoes….Or if you don’t have any of that just bring...
