Tour Prep

Its that time of year finally. That time when there is something on TV worth watching all day long. We are getting prepped for our Tour de France parties here at the shop. Our kickoff will be on July 2nd. We spend a good bit of time making sure our new TV is operational. We have also been showing replays of the Tour of Switzerland a few times a day just to be sure that our new dish is working.

Saturday we helped out at RIDEYELLOW in Bay Minette. Our rest stop was 9 miles from the finish of the 37 and 62 miles routes. The atmosphere was loud and exciting since a few of the University of South Alabama football players were there assisting cyclist. We can't wait for next year.

It's been a while since I've updated this blog

We have managed to stay very busy since opening the shop. I'll do a quick update with some pictures in no particular order. 2 weeks after opening Katie and I got hitched.

We hosted our first free monthly maintenance clinic. We ended up with a good crowd and had a good time. Katie has done 2 tri's in 2 weekends and ended up with 2 wins. Not too shabby?

We hosted a LAMB ride (loop around Mobile Bay). A few of us ended up doing the whole lap, only 6 flat tires.

Here is Katie pulling her custom Guru CR.901 tri frame out of the box.

Our group rides have ended up being a big hit.

Chip delivers a fresh keg of Sweetwater 420.

Our trusty grill keeps us entertained after business hours.
