Thanksgiving Holiday Hours!

Next week is Thanksgiving, so we're changing our hours to suit -

We will be OPEN -

Wednesday 11/26: 10am - 7pm
Friday 11/28: 10am - 7pm
Saturday 11/29: 10am - 6pm
Sunday 11/30: Noon - 5pm
Monday 12/1: 7PM - 9PM for the Holiday Stroll

The Church Street Holiday Stroll is a wonderful event, where the town lights up the Christmas tree on Church Street, Santa arrives by fire truck, and businesses stay open later than usual (or in our case, open on a day we are normally closed).  We'll be here that evening, with hot beverages and some special sales and holiday music.

We will be running specials Friday through Monday, so come on by!

Holiday Gift Ideas - First Installment

Christmas is coming! So we're going to offer some gift suggestions and even some sale items as the big day approaches.

First up... for the Brompton owner on your list, why not get them one of the amazing new Game Bags from Brompton? Handcrafted by Chapman in NW England, they are beautifully made, stylish and practical. The perfect accessory for a fine British folding bike! We've got very limited quantities, so get them while we have them, as Brompton themselves are currently out of stock.

Studded tires for Bromptons!

They're here! The new Schwalbe Winter studded tires... in 16"/349mm - Brompton size! They'll also work on Bike Friday's Tikit and Greenspeed's GT series trikes, among other things. We have a limited number of them, and it looks like we got the last that were in the warehouse, so if you want some, come and get them!

You'll be amazed at how well studded tires work on ice and packed snow. It feels like your tires are just as connected to the road as on dry pavement.  Truly amazing!

Halloween Parade 2014 - October 29, 2014!

Coming up in just NINE days - the Town of Vienna is having their 68th Annual Halloween Parade on Wednesday, October 29th. It's a bikes@vienna tradition to ride in the parade, and we'd really appreciate your help in making this the best turnout of bikes and trikes ever!  It's always a good time, and we always have food and drinks afterwards for folks. This is one of Vienna's biggest events of the year... come and be a part of it!


We'll meet at the shop at 6:00 pm to get ready, then ride to the start point around 7:00.

(That's Ray's Star Wars Y-Wing fighter/trike in the photo... we can't wait to see what he comes up with this year!)

Ride To Discovery along the W&OD Trail: Bikes @ Vienna To Falls Church, Sunday, October 19th.

What African-American astronomer helped survey of the original boundaries of the District of Columbia in 1791?
  • Where along the W&OD Trail can you find two of the boundary stones?  
Where is the first house in Falls Church to have indoor plumbing?

What Falls Church resident was inducted as an inaugural member of the Black Athletes Hall of Fame, along with Jesse Owens, Satchel Paige, Jackie Robinson, and Mohammed Ali?  
  • Why did he and his wife put their lives on the line in 1915 in the struggle for civil rights?  

Find the answers on the next Bikes at Vienna Ride To Discovery along the W&OD Trail!  The route is about 16 miles round-trip.  Most of the ride will be on the W&OD Trail, but we’ll also cycle on city streets for short distances to visit sites of historic significance.  

The ride will take place on Sunday, October 19, leaving from the Bikes at Vienna parking lot at 8:45 AM.  Please arrive early so that you have time to read and sign the liability waiver and get your bike ready to go promptly at 8:45.   

Don’t just ride the W&OD.  Ride To Discovery with Bikes at Vienna!

Here's a photo from our September Ride to Discovery. A good time was had by all!

Special Deals on Yuba Boda Bodas!

What's a Boda Boda?  Well, if you're familiar with "long tail" cargo bikes, such as the Xtracycle, Yuba Mundo, or Surly Big Dummy, this is a slightly more compact and lighter version.  Some folks call them "medium tail" cargo bikes.  They're capable of carrying up to 220 pounds in addition to the rider!  Folks use them for hauling groceries, sports equipment, kids, and even the occasional adult.

We've got a few of them in stock right now that we'd like to clear out as the season winds down, so we're marking them down.  Our Boda Boda Lux models normally sell for $1199, now on sale for $1049, and our elBoda Boda Lux (same bike, but with a Bionx electric assist system) normally sells for $3108, now on sale for $2599.

This deal is limited to stock on hand, so when they're gone, they're gone, so hurry on in to check them out!

More info on the bike can be found on the Yuba site here:
