Local Love: Mellow Monday End of Summer Ride & Party: Monday August 27th

UPDATED 8/24: Thanks to a generous donation from Joanne C. Lewis Pediatric Dentistry we’ll have Tilly’s Cheesesteaks serving up munchies following the ride Monday night. Between Joanne’s practice, Tilly’s and Shaidzon it’s shaping up to be a great night to support local small business!


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 casual group ride for everyone from beginners to enthusiasts on the South County Bike Path
When: Monday August 27, 2018 @ 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- 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 info@westedman.com or call 401.789.8664

Feeling fast? Join us Thursday nights at the shop @ 615pm for the Stedman’s Hour of Power (sHOP) Ride.

This fast-paced road ride places an emphasis on training, bike handling, teamwork and riding in a paceline. But be warned: this is a ride for experienced riders only. Speeds on the flats are often 25-30mph and end-of-ride averages are regularly 21+ mph.

Tonight’s route can be found here:

PRO TIP: Got a flashing/blinky tail light? Bring it!
