The L.A.T.E. RIDE is one of the most fun rides you can go on. Above is a photo of us at the 2001 LATE RIDE. Yes, the photo is dark, but we took off at 1am!!
TRAILS TO RIDE
MTB Trail in Ottawa. Rated sick. Scroll down to Illinois for both a BMX and a mountain bike trail.
The Illinois Prairie Path is actually more than one bike path, with over 100 miles of trails. One of the most popular trails in Illinois.
CYCLING VACATIONS & TOURS
BICYCLE ADVENTURES is a touring company I haven't toured with yet, but I have done other companies. Are you looking for a vacation you will never forget? Go on a biking vacation.
DIRT CAMP is not as rough as it sounds. I have been to Dirt Camp and the facilities, food, and staff are outstanding. More of a camp to improve offroad skills, but does include lots of riding. I strongly recommend the Moab camp.
WORLDWIDE ADVENTURES is another company I have never used, but their brochures light the fire of imagination.
BIKE COMPANY LINKS
Giant Bicycles are a brand of bikes that may not be well known to most consumers, but is a highly recognizable name in our industry. They are the worlds largest bike manufacturer, but they have only been making bikes under their own label for about 10 years. As a matter of fact, they make a lot of the brands you see in other stores. Using their purchasing power, Giant bicycles frequently have more value then most other brands. Bring in a catalog from any other bike manufacturer or bike store and we will help you stack up Giants and our other brands against them.
Diamond Back Bikes are the brand that we have carried for the longest time at our store. Their 2003 line is redesigned for women, and has a great new look and some interesting features. Check them out!!
Raleigh USA is a name many of us have known for many years. But don't think the are out of date, because our many of our customers have let us know how comfortable and stylish they are. Raleigh is one of the few companies that uses an all Shimano drivetrain, instead of just a Shimano derailleur.
Haro bikes are well known in the BMX and freestyle arenas. They have grown from a small, West Coast company to the #1 brand of 20 inchers in the U.S.
Finish Line Technologies has a great sight on maintenance of your bike. If you are not lubing your chain on a regular basis, it is like driving your car for 50,000 miles and doing no maintenance. When it breaks down or performs poorly, it is only your own fault!!!
Camelback's motto is Hydrate or Die!. Drinking enough water or sports drink is more important then most people realize. Camelback makes it easier to bring your water with you, no matter what your sport is.
