Mellow Monday Bike Path Cruise & Post Ride Party: Mon. June 24th

Do you remember what got you hooked on cycling? Was the freedom, the speed, 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 team up with one of our favorite local breweries, Shaidzon Beer Co. to bring you this bikes & beer bash on the 24th.

Too often we get suckered into taking riding seriously and that’s why this ride is different. On June 24th come down to the shop with your favorite bike- hybrid, cruiser, road/mountain/fat bike or tandem. Spend some time on two wheels with the gang from Stedman’s & Shaidzon and afterwards, stay for the after-party and enjoy beer and snacks on us.

When: Monday June 25 2019 @ 615pm
Starting Location: Stedman’s Bike Shop- 196 Main Street, Wakefield RI
***Cost: Free with donation of lunch box non-perishables- granola bars, crackers, etc.
What to Bring: Bikes of choice- hybrids are ideal but anything with two wheels will do- and a helmet

6/15 Shop Ride

Ready for another weekend of riding? Because we sure are! Come join us for one of two fun loops this Saturday morning at 8.

Thinking of trying out the shop ride for the first time, check out the descriptions of the different routes/groups here.

Here are this week’s routes:

Longer route (~36 miles; multiple groups/speeds):
Shorter route (~25 miles; one casual group, stays together ~15-16mph on flat roads):

Saturday rides roll from the shop each week at 8am. Helmets required. Bring water, tubes, pump, smiles, etc.

Hope to see you there!

(Looking for a spirited “warm-up?” Join us for the 630am pre-ride! (the pre-ride actually rolls “promptly” at 6:39). This is a ~17 mile Narragansett point loop that typically finishes in just under an hour. Coffee stop prior to returning for the 8am ride optional.)

Now Available: Garmin Edge 530 & 830

The next big thing in bike computers from Garmin has landed at Stedman’s. With lighting-fast processors, high-res screens and longer battery life the Edge 530 and 830 will help you get the most out of every ride.

One of our favorite features of the Edge series has always been navigation guidance. The shop’s Saturday shop rides, Tuesday night Ladies Ride and everything in between can be loaded up for turn-by-turn navigation to ensure you’ll never get lost again.
