“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.

Merry Christmas!

From everyone here at BikeTown - Merry Christmas! May you be blessed with time with your family and friends to celebrate the best gift ever - God's Son. Even a brand-new shiny bicycle under the tree can't compare with that! Have a wonderful Christmas Day.

Christmas Gift Ideas

Well...if you've waited this long to do your Christmas shopping - good luck! Here's one last idea for the cycling enthusiast on your list: a BikeTown gift certificate! It's good any time of the year and can be used for whatever cycling item your friend or family member wants. So, if you are venturing out in the snow this morning, drop on by the store and pick up a one-size-fits-all gift certificate.

Christmas Gift Ideas

Here's another Christmas gift idea for any of you out there needing last minute ideas: the Pearl Izumi Vagabond jacket. These things are great! I wear mine all the time in the winter months. It is extremely lightweight, and great at blocking the good ol West Texas wind. It also has sleeves that easily zip off if you get a tad too warm. It's one of those clothing pieces that after you try it you wonder how you went without it. Come on in to the store and check it out. While you're there, check out all our other cold-weather gear. There are lots of jerseys, tights, socks, gloves, etc. to choose from!

Christmas Gift Ideas

Time is running out! Christmas is just a few days away! Here's another gift idea for you: trainers. It is winter now, and sometimes it's just not too pleasant outside. Instead of forgoing your bike ride, stick your bike in that trainer and pedal away. No, it's not the same as riding outside, but it does help you keep up the riding during the cold weather season. Come on in to the store and check out the trainers that we have in stock. Any one of them would look good under the tree!

Christmas Gift Ideas

Christmas is almost here. It's hard to believe that it is a week from tomorrow! If you're like me, you haven't finished shopping yet. Actually, if you're like me, you haven't even figured out what you are shopping for yet. If you are in that same predicament, check here from now until Christmas. I'll be sharing some good gift ideas for bicycle-loving friends and family.

Here's the idea for today: Arm, leg, or knee warmers. Our weather around here is rather unpredictable in the winter time. We can have 60 degree weather one day and then have 25 degree weather the next. Sometimes, that temperature change occurs within hours. It's always nice to be prepared for the weather to change. It might be a bit cool when your ride starts, but really warm up as you go, either from the weather or the workout. Being able to shed arm or leg warmers as you ride is really nice. Your cycling family member will appreciate this gift under the tree!
