Life is good when you look across the street and there is a line outside your small town library 15 minutes before opening.
Eclipse mania!

Restock of 302 gear!

Cheers to David and his smooth rolling, eye catching dark blue and silver Giant Cypress DX! David was decisive in his pick of the Cypress DX and the features of this hybrid bicycle are sweet. Suspension in both the seat post and front fork soak up shocks, making David's ride easy on his upper extremities and spine. The upright riding position gives a head's up ride like a cruiser, but the larger size 700c wheels on the Cypress make for increased pedaling efficiency. This means David will be able to ride longer distance and faster with less effort. The Cypress DX is perfect for both trail and hard surface riding in southern Delaware.
Happy New Bike Day, David, we hope for many long happy rides in our wonderful coastal community.

The inaugural Group B ride!
3 intrepid cyclists met in a steady rain to head out on a Milford/Lincoln loop.
They were pleased to sustain the midrange mph goal of a B ride at 17mph in slick conditions with the reward of the sun coming out at the 3/4 mark through the ride.
The Group B loop interconnected with the Women's Group Ride loop making it fun to meet up and holler out to each other across route 30.
There is great interest in this ride as it is functional for new road cyclists, cyclists recovering from injuries, and roadies wanting to ride on a rest day.
Tuesday nights 6p at Lifecycle led by Kevin Krantz, the cyclists pictured in the middle of this photo.

Look at these before and after shots of our inaugural women's group road ride. 6 women came out in the rain, all of us having no group riding experience, and gamely swung into our saddles. We hit our goal of averaging 15mph and each woman reached personal goals. Some women were back riding after birthing a baby, some were training for their first triathlon, and some rode the fastest they'd ever ridden. You can see at the end the laughter and shared sense of accomplishment. Thank you all for coming out to ride and trying something new. Your spirits made what I thought was not my favorite type of cycling by very best ride this summer. See you next week!
Women on bicycles watch for "Joy Rides" coming soon!

Cheers to Jenny and her awesome Liv bicycle, the Rove! This bicycle, and her brother, the Roam, are the most geeked over bicycles in the shop.
Jenny came to Lifecycle with the story that all of us share "I haven't really ridden or loved a bicycle since being a kid."
Jenny tried several bicycles, and deliberately learned the attributes of each bike for the type of riding she wanted to do. Then she went home and thought. It's common for our customers to make several trips into the shop and ride bikes over and over then go home and deliberate for some time. It's a great process we enjoy as we then are able to watch the joy a customer experiences when they decide on The One. The time Jenny took in choosing her bicycle resulted in her "I feel like I'm flying!" effervescent happiness. It's a blast to witness such a reaction!
The Rove features tires smooth down the center and knobbed on the sides as well as a front suspension fork that can be made squish or rigid with a switch. This makes it the ultimate adventure bike for southern DE. On roads Jenny can flip the switch to make the front fork rigid, and rely on the smooth center strip on the tires for quick agility. Once she hits the trail, the switch is flipped to engage the suspension which coupled with the knobbed tire sides enables Jenny to take dirt, sand, roots, and rocks with smooth confidence.
The cycling world is now trending to versatile adventure bikes, and it's one fun ride!
Happy New Bike Day, Jenny! It was a honor to share your happiness and we wish you many fun adventures on your new Rove!
