New Sunday Hours!

We've decided to extend our Sunday hours, effective June 28th.  We will now open at 10:00 am and close at 5:00 pm.  So come on in earlier if you'd like!

We've got lots of great bikes and trikes to try and to buy...

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Come ride with us in the Fairfax Independence Day Parade!

All recumbent cyclists are encouraged to join us on Saturday July 4th 2015 at 8:15am for our fourth participation in the Fairfax City Independence Day Parade.
Do you know a vet with a trike? Ask him to join us! 
Do you know a vet without a trike who would like to join us? Let us know - we might be able to find a loaner for him. 
Costumes are not necessary but welcomed; 4th-of-July-themed bike decorations are expected. We usually have extra flags and red-white-blue crepe paper to share.
We are in Division 2, Position 209. This puts us ahead of the elephants (if you've ridden with us in the past, you'll know why this is a good thing; otherwise, use your imagination). Our holding area is in the green stripe along the parade route in map below.
If you want to join us at the shop to ride down to the start point, please arrive at the shop by 7:30 so we can depart by 7:45!
