Community Events: Looking Back at October
November 14, 2011 2 Comments
Every month, our over 100 stores support or host many great cycling events, in addition to their regularly scheduled Spin Doctor clinics & group rides, so we wanted to take a moment to recognize just a few of the events that our folks in the field were involved with in October.
Our Columbus, OH store helped out at an elementary school bike rodeo, as part of Ohio’s “Wear Your Bike Helmet to Work or School Day”.
Our Boulder, CO store hosted a book signing with USA Cycling Coach John Hughes, author of “Distance Cycling.”
John Hughes has completed the Race Across America and multiple Paris-Brest-Paris events, one of the oldest and longest cycling events (it’s still 1200km, with a time limit of 90 hours)! He is the former Director of the Ultra Marathon Cycling Association, and his book is full of tips on how to prepare yourself for some long days in the saddle.
The VeloSwap is the world’s largest consumer bicycling and sports expo, where you can buy, sell, re-cycle anything cycling-related. Visitors packed the Performance Bicycle booth for our giveaways and a chance to win some of our great prizes! Here’s a video that shows you what the VeloSwap scene is like:
