Well, we’ve been in our new store for over 2 months, but now that spring is just around the corner, we’re having a Grand Opening Party on Saturday March 7, 10am-5pm! As part of the party, we’ll be doing a benefit for The ReCYCLEry, a very cool local non-profit that teaches people how to work on their bikes and runs a bicycle sharing program around town. You can check out their work at http://recyclery.info/ . A portion of all sales and proceeds from a bike raffle will go to the ReCYCLEry.
So, why should you come? First off – FOOD! We’ll have Free coffee and bagels in the morning to get you going. The coffee will be supplied by Johnny’s, a Carrboro favorite. In the afternoon, we’ll whip out the Xtracycle Blender for some Bike-Blended Smoothies! Pedal your way from frozen berries and ice to a smooth and delicious treat – it’s amazingly easy. Come an’ get ’em while their HOT (or COLD as the case may be).
We’ll be raffling off a Full Suspension Mountain Bike. Complete with disc brakes, this will take the trails or the streets in style. Tickets are only $2 or 3 for $5 and all proceeds will go to the ReCYCLEry. You don’t need to be present to win, but you DO need to buy a ticket! (anytime between now and Saturday the 7th at 5PM)
All our accessories will be on SALE – 7% goes back in your pocket and 7% does good in the community through the ReCYCLEry. All tubes will be ONLY $2 – we have 12″ through 700c sizes, all shapes and configurations. Stock up for the summer at this awesome price!
We’ll also have some new bikes to check out in the electric and cargo realms. Come see and ride our new offerings! We’ll be getting electric bikes by EcoBike, tried and tested in the hills of San Francisco. http://www.ecobike-usa.com/index.asp . We’ll also have a few step-through models of our Cycle 9 electric bikes available. If carrying stuff is on your mind this spring, come check out the new Radish from Xtracycle. This longtail bike is compatible with all Xtracycle accessories but not as pricey as the Big Dummy. http://store.xtracycle.com/_e/Xtracycle_Complete_Bikes/product/BK-RAD-01/_Xtracycle_Radish.htm . And brand new is the Madsen cargo bike. This longtail can carry up to 4 small kids on the rear bench seats, or load it up with anything you can throw at it. The small rear wheel (20″) and extra wide kickstand make it easy to load and handle. Come in for a test ride! http://www.madsencycles.com/
See you Saturday!
