“Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.” ~John F. Kennedy

Here at BikeTown we couldn’t agree more. We love riding our bikes and want to help as many people as we can love riding their bikes, too.

Baylor's not sure if he's having fun yet

At this point Jim is still having fun

After two flats, Jim's just glad to see the finish line

Go, Luke!

Great job, Maggie!

The race at Comfort was a lot of fun and finished just in time. By the end of the awards, the cold wind and rain clouds had blown in. Glad the weather held off as long as it did!

Great job to everyone who showed up. Can't wait to see how we do out there next year!

Been Gone a While...

...because of this:

Sorry to all who actually read this blog! Life has been a bit crazy having to come up with things to keep a very active, energetic 6 year old boy entertained for the past 5 weeks. One result of the craziness is that the blog has suffered. And, yes - the broken collarbone happened while riding a bike. Well - to be more accurate - the broken collarbone happened after the landing of a jump attempt. Apparently, the jump was great. The landing - not so much. Anyway, the countdown to resumed activity is almost over, so, hopefully, regular blog posts will return!
