Full Moon Fat Bike Beach Ride: Monday 11/14 at The Ocean Mist

Our Full Moon Fat Bike Beach Ride series continues, and this month we’re going to Matunuck. We’ve partnered up with the Ocean Mist to serve as the ride’s home base and will explore parts of Moonstone and East Matunuck Beaches, as well as a quick spin through Jerusalem.

Join us Monday Nov. 14th at 630pm under the Super Moon for this month’s ride. Total distance will be around 8 miles and will take approximately an hour or so. Once we return to the Ocean Mist post-ride there will be food and drink specials, as well as their legendary Monday night bingo.


Don’t have a fat bike? We have limited demos available on a first come, first serve basis. Reservations are required as these rides fill up fast and we regularly have waiting lists. Please note that we reserve the right to pritotize those who have not participated in the FMBR before. 

Big thanks to Light & Motion for sponsoring this series- lights available upon request.

Fall Training Wraps Up Thursday 10/27: Intro to Winter Riding

Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean the riding season is over. On the contrary, look at it as an opportunity; an opportunity to literally see the world differently, ride otherwise accessible locations and- in many cases- have your surroundings all to yourself.

In this final workshop of Fall ’16 we’ll discuss dressing for winter temps and conditions, cover equipment options including studded tires and pogies/Bar Mitts and go over the different types of fat bikes most appropriate for the local area.

Class starts at 7pm and is free to anybody interested in getting the most out of their riding experience. Each week we raffle off a $25 Stedman’s Gift Card and every class you attend enters you in our grand prize drawing for a $75 Stedman’s Gift Card (drawn 10/27).

Questions? Give us a shout at 401.789.8664 or info@westedman.com.

Happy 90th Bicycle Bill!!

Tuesday, October 25th was Everett ‘Bicycle Bill’ Stedman’s Birthday. He turned the big Nine-O this year and we threw him a party at the shop that bears his family’s name. The man of the hour was in attendance surrounded by friends and customers and couldn’t have been happier to see everybody.

Everett E. Stedman was born on October 25, 1926. He grew up in the shop that bears his family’s name and upon his father’s passing inherited the name Bicycle Bill. In 1952 bought the store from his mother and owned and operated the business ever since, until just recently when he became a partner with long-time employee Jim Walsh.

These days he doesn’t make it by the shop very often, which made this a rare opportunity to celebrate with a local legend. From Everett and all of us at the shop…thanks for joining us!
