This will be my first winter commuting to work on my bicycle, and I’ve been thinking for several months about how I’ll make my bike, and myself, winter-ride-ready. Luckily:
1) I have access to my friends and coworkers, our BBP mechanics, for their advice on how to prepare for winter riding. You do too!
2) Our shop is chock full of quality, affordable, used parts to winterize our rides.
3) I can order components and even some gear, like wool socks and winter gloves, through our shop vendors.
In the past, Century Ride members have been able to special order through our vendors (in the shop, with the assistance of a team member), and we applied their member discount upon payment.
With the Official Membership rollout coming in 2019, all members will receive this benefit.
For the remainder of this year, both Alley Cat and Century Ride member groups can place special orders through us and use their 10% or 15% discount upon payment. Consider this a great time to get winter gear for yourself and your bike, or to purchase holiday gifts for your BFFs.
Orders must be placed in the shop, during shop hours. For orders to arrive by our last day of operations (Saturday, December 22), all orders must be placed by Wednesday, December 19.
A reminder about Wednesday Night Member’s Classes:
Member’s Class is canceled next week on December 12. Our team will be hustling to prep for Holiday Kids Bike Giveaway.
Our final Member’s Class of 2018 is on December 19. We’ll round out the year with another Open Shop night.
Member’s Class will resume on Wednesday, January 9. We’ll begin our curriculum cycle from the start. Check our events calendar for weekly class topics.
Limited Edition BBP Beanies are here! Swing into the shop to get yours before we close for the year.
Lastly, we are hosting a progressive sale, Cousin Eddie’s Holiday Sale, Wednesday the 19th through Saturday the 22nd. I’m not kidding when I say that all inventory must go before we close our doors for the year. Read our newsletter or come back to this Shop Updates Page next week for the details.
It’s been such an awesome year here in the shop. Thank you for believing.
