  • Redbeard Sunday Shop Ride, 4/19 @ 8 AM

    Hard week? Treat yourself to a spring bicycle ride in good company. This Sunday, 4/19, join us for our shop ride, over the river and through the woods.

    We roll at 8 AM from Redbeard Bikes at 69 Jay Street. We'll take the Brooklyn Bridge => West Side Greenway/Riverside Drive => GWB => River Road to the Ranger Station. We'll return via 9W. Round-trip is about 50 miles.

    (The shop will be open @ 7:45 AM in case you need to fill up on air, water, or snacks. We may not have a mechanic on hand in the morning, so if your bike needs last-minute TLC, please visit us before Sunday.)

    You are welcome to cut out early, or forge ahead without us. Our ride is a no-drop ride, all are welcome!

    Here's last week's crew, paused on the West Side highway. We were having so much fun we missed our usual turnoff around 96th Street. But we made it to the Ranger Station anyway!





    Also: We are organizing a longer faster-paced ride on May 10th. Details coming soon! Please email us, redbeard@redbeardbikes.com, if you'd be interested in such a ride. Perfect for those doing the Gran Fondo the following week.
  • Sunday Shop Ride, 4/12

    Our shop ride is tomorrow!

    8 AM departure from Redbeard Bikes, about 50 miles roundtrip to River Road (Ranger Station turnaround). We had an awesome turnout last weekend and the forecast for tomorrow looks promising! Ours is a no-drop ride, all are welcome!

    We plan to ride every Sunday, barring rain or other extreme weather. Please check this blog or Facebook for any changes or cancellations.




  • A Sunday in Hell: Paris-Roubaix

    If you're still pattering about your apartment, wondering if you should go outside...DON'T WATCH THIS. Go ride your bike, there's some daylight left. And watch this later.

    The Paris-Roubaix is coming up on April 12th.

     

  • Sunday Ride Departs @ 8:30 AM

    Good news, everyone! Our Sunday ride to River Road now leaves the shop @ 8:30 AM!

    What will you do with the extra hour? Sleep in? Drink a hot cuppa? Do extra laps in the park?
