Ride It. Love It. Buy It.

We are finally escaping the 00s. It took a while, but it's happening. 

For too long, mountain bikers were convinced that a hardtail 29er was the only bike for Michigan trails. Sure, we don't have 2,000 foot climbs and the accompanying descent to look forward to. But what we do have is a dozen or so trails that offer a diverse range of terrain, elevation and needs, and more and more riders are realizing that there is more out there than a hardtail with 2.25" tires. 

Don't get us wrong, hardtrails rock. But we live in a time when brands like Kona and Rocky Mountain are making bikes that suit how more and more people ride, and that isn't always in a cross-country race. Full suspension, longer travel, smaller-wheeled and wider-tired bikes open up a different riding experience that puts the focus on fun, on big days, or just going a little but further than you're used to. 

Our demo fleet is hand-picked to help you find a bike that's just a little different than the one you've always ridden. From the XC or all-day ready Kona Hei Hei, the plus-tired Big Honzo, or the longer travel Thunderbolt and Pipeline, trying something new is as simple as picking a trail and see what suspension and volume can do for. 

Maybe the best way to hop in for a demo is by joining us at Dirt Church this Sunday, June 17. We'll have coffee at the shop at 9, then bust out to Richmond to ride no later than 10:15. You put your name on any of the bikes for Sunday right by filling out the demo reservation form here

Get signed up, try something new, and take advantage of our trade-in program this summer. There's tons of time to ride, and some great places to do it, too.

September At Central District Cyclery

...and all of a sudden, Labor Day Weekend is done and dusted. We're looking ahead to a busy but very fun fall here in West Michigan! There are plenty of cool things going on, and you're going to want to make sure your bike is dialed in and ready to rock. 

Coming up real quick is the first KissCross of the year, and we're setting it up! Our mad scientists are laying out the course at Richmond Park on Sunday, September 17. Racing for fun, racing for beer, and racing for hand-ups starts at 10am with the Kid's Race! 

Just two weeks later, there's a State Championship on the line at Merrill! With the start and finish located just next door at the Art Van Sports Complex, The Michigantuan is September 30. The Short Track race is the following day, October 1! Two days, tons of fun right here in Grand Rapids.

But there's plenty more to look forward to beyond the big races. We've got CX Clinics heading into the race at Richmond, on Thursday, September 7 and on Thursday, September 14. Learn a thing or two, plus have a ton of fun, right at Richmond Park! It's a good way to get a little sneak peek at the actual course, too. 

Stay tuned for some night rides, tune-up specials, and great new tech and gear popping into the shop this month as well. Stop by soon and say hello!
