The change of seasons is here, spring will soon be summer and the trails will dry out and roads become clean from their wintry salt and sand residue, skis will be exchanged for bikes as quickly as the temperature allows for. However, pulling bikes out from the cobwebs is different than grabbing rock-skis for the first scrappy turns of the year.
Skiershop.com cares about safety. The whole month of May, is free bike safety check month. Who doesn’t like things for free… and since Skiershop.com likes to play outside with friends, a free bike safety check will make sure everyone is safe as they transition to bike season on the trails and the open road. New to our team at Skiershop.com is Dave “Fun Facilitator” Clifford. He is the Skiershop.com Service Manager and bike guru, having been a professional bike mechanic since 1999; Dave knows bikes inside and out.
Dave also recognizes the fact that Bike Safety is priority number one for a great season out on the trails and roads. Dave states, “If you have a car inspected you should have a bike inspected, if something does not sound or feel right, it probably isn’t, that’s why anyone who brings in their bike will receive a full free safety check. Usually most bikes are not as bad as one would think and nothing is better than having full confidence with your bike on the road or trail.” The whole shop partakes in great trail rides every Friday night as part of the season long Friday Night Rides get-together.
The gear continues to flow in like a swollen mountain stream from snowmelt. Skiershop.com has the fresh new sunglasses and watches from Neff, and the new line of shades from Electric is in the store. And in addition to keeping everyone safe with a free bike safety check, Skiershop.com has received new protective gear from POC Sports, featuring an integrated spine-protector/water hydration pack, that will protect necks and keep riders hydrated on the trails for hours.
Skiershop.com continues its commitment to persevering local mountain bike trails, along with Bikestowe.com, Partners Dan Burgess and Bobbie Roehm, are donating 10% of the profits from all bike sales to The Cady Hill Forest Conservation Project. The Skiershop.com is very happy to be part of the community’s overwhelming response to the April challenge that raised over $100,000 to claim a generous $25,000 gift for the trail project from the Stafford Family Foundation.
