Don’t live near one of our 5 newest stores? You can still have your own cycling celebration by taking part in our Double Points Weekend!  If you are a Team Performance Buyer’s Club member (or if you join today) you’ll get double points on all of your purchases, online or in our stores, all weekend long, points that you can apply to future purchases at Performance.  That works out to 20% back on every item, in addition to the other great Team Performance benefits: free 2nd business day shipping upgrade on every order, exclusive members-only sales online and a one-year subscription to Bicycling Magazine!

So what are you waiting for – it’s time to celebrate this weekend!

2011 stores

Even though the first month of the new year is somehow already drawing to a close, we thought that we’d mention one more thing that we’re looking forward to in 2011.  So far we’ve talked about our new 2011 bikes, a new season of pro racing, and just getting out to ride with our friends, but another big thing for 2011 is definitely our new stores opening soon!

We’re going to continue to grow and reach cyclists around the country with our new, cutting-edge store design, as well as with our legendary service, values and selection. We’ll update you about store opening and grand opening dates and information as soon as we finalize the details, but for now we can say that we’ll soon have new stores in the following locations this spring:

We’re excited about the opportunities to meet new cyclists and service the needs of new cycling communities, and to reach out to current friends with a more convenient location.  We look forward to sharing our passion for cycling in our new stores, while always providing our high level of customer service with our fantastic values and selection, our low price promise, and our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

If you are interested in joining our team, we are also accepting applications from friendly and knowledgeable people to work in our new stores! We’re always looking for cycling-knowledgeable associates to sell the joy of cycling and provide our customers with an exceptional experience.  Check out the Job Opportunities page on our site, or just follow the directions on the new stores opening soon pages.

Check back in the coming weeks for more updates and details about the new stores listed above and to see what additional new stores we’ve got planned for the rest of 2011!

Grand Opening Bike Tube Blowouts

Since today is America Recycles Day, we thought it was the perfect time to give an update on our Grand Opening Bike Tube Blow-outs.  During the Grand Openings of our new and remodeled stores this year, we partnered with Liberty Tire Recycling, the largest scrap tire recycler in the country, on a recycling program for used or blown-out inner tubes. During the Grand Opening weekends, anyone could bring their used or blown-out inner tubes to the store and receive up to three $5 money cards for the tubes they recycled.

Liberty Tire Recycling, the nation’s largest collector of used and scrap tires, will turn the bike tubes into mulch for playgrounds, athletic fields, railroad ties and highway asphalt, among other uses. The company collects and recycles nearly one-third of all of America’s annual scrap tire material and has cleaned up more than 150 dump sites littered with nearly 40 million scrap tires—more than any other organization.

So how did we do?  It turns out you had a lot of used or blown-out tubes that you wanted to keep out of the landfill!  We collected a total of 2 tons of tubes during our Grand Opening celebrations.  If you’re having trouble picturing how much 2 tons is, just take a look at this 2-ton hippo that escaped from a private zoo in Montenegro!

Thanks to everyone for helping out with our Bike Tube Blow-outs–it just goes to show that when we all work together we can really make a difference.  And keep an eye on performancebike.com next year, or follow us on Twitter or Facebook, for news about more exciting bicycle-related recycling projects.
