Garmin Edge 530 & 830: Never Ask for Directions Again

The latest in cycling computers from Garmin are back in stock at the shop, just in time for your next Mountain, Gravel or Road adventure. 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.

Most units are in stock and ready to go- calling to confirm availability is recommended.

Now Open: URI Bike Path Extension

After months of anticipation the William C. O’Neill Bike Path will have a couple new miles of fresh pavement for cyclists, runners and walkers to enjoy. This new extension will link the existing stretch of pavement between Larkin Pond Road and Ministerial Road to Route 138, adding approximately 2 miles to the existing 7.8 miles of path. It will also add a direct link to Kingston between Peace Dale, Wakefield and Narragansett, allowing users to access the locations by foot or pedal on nearly 7 miles of car-free infrastructure.

For more information on the William C. O’Neill Bike path head over to http://southcountybikepath.org/

It’s Hunting Season…Got Orange?

Fall is here and it’s the best time of year to grab your bike and enjoy the woods.

But wait- before heading out don’t forget that we share the local management areas (including Burlingame, Big River, Arcadia, etc.) with other users, especially hunters. From September 8th 2018 through February 28th 2019  and April 20th though May 31st 2019 all cyclists must wear at least 200sq inches of florescent orange; that number increases to 500sq inches during the month of December.

Helmet covers and our new Stedman Orange arm warmers are a great way to cover yourself under the 200sq inch requrement.

Helmet covers + vests and/or our new Stedman Orange short & long sleeve jerseys satisfy the 500sq inch requirement.
