We stuffed 900 rider packets this evening for the Bridge to Bridge particpants. Big thanks to Jenna, Tammy, Mark, Mark Hites, Charles, Different Charles, Jack Brown, Mikey MC and B-Rock for lending a big hand to get it done. Jeff has been in overdrive getting all the last minute details straight for this weekend. We now have Luna waterbottles and new Luna T-shirts in 3 different styles in stock. We are stocked up on every conceivable item that a would-be Bridge rider could possibly want and to top it all off, we're having a sale! All sunglasses, shoes, Mavic computers and Sugoi shorts and short-sleeve jerseys are on sale for 10% off! We also have 2007 road and mtn. bikes on sale! If you've been waiting to wheel and deal, now's your time!
We will be having a mellow spin ride Saturday morning at 8 am, leaving from the shop. Our hours will be extended this weekend in order to accomodate the Bridge to Bridge schedule. Saturday we will be open from 11 am to 7 pm and Sunday from 7 am to 9 am (B2B start time). I will be doing a feed towards the top of 181, so come see me if you want me to hand up bottles and/or food to you.
It has been a long week and the weekend will hopefully be a busy time. If you are coming in from out of town for B2B, be sure to stop by. We will be more than happy to give you the beta on the new course, make ride suggestions for any pre-ride spins you want to do and we can also offer local knowledge on dining options and that all important Sunday morning caffeine urge!
Don't forget that once Bridge is over, the riding season is still going on. We are fortunate to have a fairly mild winter here, so outdoor road riding is a year-round possibility. However, as the weather gets cooler and the days shorter, it comes time to explore other 2 wheeled pursuits like mtn. biking. For us at Luna, Fall means one all consuming two-wheeled passion: CYCLOCROSS! We will once again play host to a cyclocross race here in Lenoir, but this year we are now a part of the prestigious NC Cyclocross Series Fall Cup! Our race will be Sunday, November 4th. Saturday, Sept. 22nd, we will begin cyclocross practice at the Zack's Fork Soccer Complex every Saturday at 4:30. Bring any bike you want, a helmet and you'll be one step closer to running through barriers and doing two wheeled drift turns in the drops.
