Stedman’s & Shaidzon Present Mellow Monday: Monday June 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 25th.

Too often we get suckered into taking riding seriously- maybe even a bit too seriously- and that’s why this ride is different. On June 25th 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 & casual group ride for everyone from beginners to enthusiasts
When: Monday evenings (weather permitting) at 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.

6/9 Shop Ride

Looks like a beautiful weekend ahead. Kick it off the right way with a ride! Two routes available again this week: 32 miles up into Exeter and back or 25 miles round trip to Shannock.

The long loop ride will break up into our usual 2-3 groups based upon pace.  Fastest group will be a drop group, the other groups tend to try to regroup if any gaps open up. The shorter loop will ride together at about 15-16 mph cruising speed on flat roads. This group will be identified before we leave the shop to avoid confusion. A fun time for everyone!

Saturday rides roll each week at 8am. Helmets required; bring water, tubes, pump etc. We should have all riders back to the shop about 10am.

The routes:

32.4 miles: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/22874494

24.5 miles: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/22874596

Hope to see you there!
