With the Provincial Time Trial Championships this Sunday, now is a great time to think about an aero helmet. We have all sizes and many colours in stock in the S-Works Evade aero road helmet and the sweet McLaren-designed S-Works TT helmet. And while you are thinking aero, check out this video on how to dress for a little extra speed.
If you want a high performance road bike, but you want to be able to ride pretty much anywhere, this sweet new 2015 Diverge Comp Carbon might be what you are looking for. Smooth roads, rough roads, dirt roads and rail trail are where this bike will feel at home. And we have a lot of those surfaces around here. Well, except for smooth roads. Like a Unicorn, I’ve heard they exist but I’ve never seen one.
Specialized Canada will be at Sweet Ride on Sunday, June 7th, with all the best in road and mountain bikes for you to try. Mahone Bay offers some great, quiet roads and some fantastic singletrack riding so you can truly test out these great machines. There will be a wide range of road and mountain bikes, in both men’s and women’s specific models. Rumour has it we will even have some of the new 2016 Stumpjumper FSR’s to try. How cool is that? Bring your own riding gear including helmet and pedals. There is no cost and guided rides will be available. The demo is on from 11-4.
Next week is our Pony Power Women’s Mountain Bike workshop…if you would like to be more comfortable riding in single track and off road terrain, to ride with your kids or your friends, this workshop is for you! You will need a mountain bike in good working order or contact Sweet Ride Cycling to arrange a rental. Pack a lunch and snacks and dress for the weather as we’ll run rain or shine. You can register online at www.trailflow.ca Hope to see you there.
If your shoes are looking like this, trade them in for a new pair of Specialized shoes, and get up to $100 off select models.
We just received a bunch more of the excellent Wahoo Fitness Kickr electronic trainers. (Apparently, the last batch before the price goes up!) This is one of the best training tools on the market and will definitely improve your performance. (You still have to ride it though.) If you are unfamiliar with the Kickr, check out the DC Rainmaker review for all you need to know. The Kickr opens up a whole world of training options. If you want entertainment, check out Zwift. If you want to ride a goal-oriented training program, check out Trainer Road. If you want to do it yourself, check out Hurts Ergo. All of these apps take control of the Kickr so you just focus on turning the pedals. There are lots of apps that interact with the trainer to make the indoor riding experience a bit more enjoyable. It may be some time till most of us will ride outdoors, so make the best of it. For now, $1300.
