Stedman’s & Shaidzon Present Mellow Monday: Monday August 25th

Do you remember what got you hooked on cycling? Was the freedom, the speed, maybe the smells? This summer we invite you to go back to your roots and ride simply for the sake of riding. And that’s why we’re psyched to announce our partnership with the area’s newest brewery, Shaidzon Beer Co. to bring you this bikes, beer and burgers bash on the 27th.

Too often we get suckered into taking riding seriously- maybe even a bit too seriously- and that’s why this ride is different. On August 27th come down to the shop with your favorite bike- hybrid, singlespeed/fixie, road/mountain/fat bike or even cargo bike. Spend some time on two wheels with the gang from Stedman’s & Shaidzon and afterwards, stay for the cookout and enjoy a beer and burger on us.

What: A low-key group ride for everyone from beginners to enthusiasts
When: Monday August 27, 2018 @ 615pm
Starting Location: Stedman’s Bike Shop- 196 Main Street, Wakefield RI
What to Bring: Bikes of choice (hybrids are ideal but anything with two wheels will do), a helmet and weather appropriate clothing
Pace/Distance/Time: Casual/conversation pace/approx. 12 mi./approx. 1hr.
Don’t have a bike? To reserve a demo contact Stedman’s at or call 401.789.8664
