Velo Coffee, REI, and Cycle Sport Breakfast Ride

Saturday, September 8, 2018 (8 am - 11:00 am)

Hey Chattanooga!

Join Cycle Sport at Velo Coffee Roasters for a morning ride from Velo on Main St. to Negley's Knoll on Stringers Ridge! Hot coffee will be provided upon arrival of destination, but we would also love to encourage you to bring your own camp coffee kits- however, that is not required or expected. This ride will be led by Velo and Cycle Sport- while REI prepares breakfast atop the ridge. Though we will be riding our bikes across town, we encourage you to ride a mountain bike (or a bike with large enough tires to ride gravel) due to the terrain of the ride for the Stringers Ridge section. Breakfast will also be provided! So hurry up, grab a friend, and save your spot today!

Rad Ride.jpg

Wednesday Rad Ride

Every Wednesday thru September 5, 2018 (6:00 pm)

Due to the traffic/parking situation, we will be starting the ride from Food City in St.Elmo (3801 Tennessee Ave, Chattanooga, TN 37409).

Plan to be on the most rad road ride in the entire universe every Wednesday this summer. Our goal is to have fun and teach others the way of the "roadie" and how to ride in a group. We may even have a few beers after ... who knows.

We ask that you are able to average at least 15 mph if you plan to attend. We will have a ride leader and a sweep to make sure no one gets lost.

Helmets, water bottles, and rear blinky lights are required. Traffic and basic safety rules will be strictly enforced.

I never post anything political, but this would reduce almost nonexistent margins and increase the retail price of every single item in the store as well as put cycling further out of the reach of the average individual. The consequence of tariffs reaching 25% would hurt our business more than I can explain and may be the final straw for many small businesses. These tariffs affect EVERY single item in any bike shop. Please support your locally owned bike shop. Us. ... The federal government has proposed increasing the tariff on most bicycles, products and accessories by 10 percent. We anticipate this will increase duties on our industry by more than $100 million, increasing costs for suppliers, retailers and customers. The administration announced that they are considering increasing the proposed tariff from 10 percent to 25 percent, which, if implemented, could result in duty increases exceeding $250 million. We need you to take action today to fight this tariff increase. Use the form at peopleforbikes.org to send a letter to the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR), the agency responsible for approving tariff changes. The USTR needs to hear how higher tariffs will hurt the domestic bike industry. For more information, visit the tariff resources page. www.peopleforbikes.org and you can also send a letter via that page as well. #imchoo #Chattanooga #shoplocal #shopsmall #newbikeday #cycling #tariffs #noogagram

What we ride series : This wonderful 1974 Colnago Super Record was purchased by Kim (the shop old guy) in 1975. He has ridden it through the years and updated some parts (of course keeping the original) and even had the frame repainted back to the original color a few years ago. This isn't wall art and is ridden several times per week. #Chattanooga #shoplocal #oldbikeday #noogagram #imchoo #roadbike #colnago
