We once again volunteered our mechanical services for the Gran Fondo National Championship here in Frederick.
April 6, 2014 9:00am-2:00pm We will be set up near the Tea Room off Gambrill Park Road in Pavilion #2. There will be lots of mountain bikes there begging to get dirty.
The Kids Triathlon was a huge success. Thanks to all the volunteers and participants.
We have a winner! John Thomas, Frederick County’s Principal Planner and known bicycle enthusiast, won the Bike to Work grand prize, a Breezer i3 folding bike.
Bike to Work Day is THIS Friday. Soooooo SIGN UP, SIGN UP, SIGN UP! Lets show everyone how committed Frederick is to alternative transportation.
I am very excited to announce that Danielle and I will be attending the 2009 North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Indianapolis on February 27 – March 1. While at the event we plan on blogging more than a teenage girl who scored tickets to a Jonas Bothers concert.
This year’s swap meet was pretty fun. We were there with the ‘Wheel Game’ for the fourth consecutive year. Lots of bottle caps found good homes and it was good to catch up with people we don’t get to see very often.
The Bicycle Escape invites fans of handmade bicycles to our shop on June 12 at 8:30 pm for a presentation by frame builder Jeff Jones. Jeff’s unique designs challenge traditional thinking and push the limits of hardtail mountain bikes.
Welcome to Bike Month everybody!!! This morning I was greeted with perfect temperatures and a cool breeze as I cycled to work. I want to encourage everyone to enjoy the same pleasure. This month is packed with fun stuff!
The Leesburg Bakers Dozen was a blast. The rain held out until after the race and I hardly broke a sweat eating and drinking in the Single Speed Outlaw Shanty Town.
It was nice to see so many friendly faces at the 2008 Stop, Swap, and Save event this past weekend in Westminster. This year we brought back the super popular “Wheel Game” and many of you left The Bicycle Escape booth with cool prizes.
Not that many people would consider competing in a 62 mile cyclocross race on a fixed gear, especially one with 6300 feet of elevation gain. But one of our racers, Kevin Clark, was up to the challenge.
The 2007 Independent Fabrication party was a blast! Matt Bracken gave a great presentation to a full house. He touched on everything from custom fittings to material selection. As promised the shop was full of exceptionally beautiful handcrafted bicycles.
We are excited to announce that Independent Fabrication endurance racer Harlan Price will be joining us on our Sunday morning road bike ride the day following our IF party.
Danielle, Roger and I had a lot of fun at this past Friday’s bike to work celebration. The event attracted riders both young and old atop all sorts of bicycles. We were offering free coffee and bagels to warm up the slightly chilly riders.
This past Sunday was pretty exciting. Greenbrier State Park hosted the Greenbrier Challenge UCI mountain bike race. Much has been written about the racers and the final results have been posted.
Yesterday was the Stop Swap and Save bicycle swap meet in Westminster. For the second year in a row we spent the day inviting attendees to play the “Wheel Game” for a chance at one of many great prizes.
