Some of our best memories with our significant other has been spending time riding bikes together. I’m not talking about getting dressed in spandex and heading out for a 50 mile ride, although we like to do that too. I’m talking about checking out an outdoor concert, festival, or movie, packing food and drinks, and mapping out a route to get there. Here’s a few of our favorite local bike dates. Read More
We discovered a few year’s ago that yoga is a great compliment to riding bikes. Not only does it strengthen your core and build stability to make you stronger on the bike, but it’s a great stress reliever. Join us on Sunday, January 10th at 11 am for the first in a series of weekly yoga classes in our new workout studio. Anne Marie Fayen, a certified yoga instructor and bike commuter will be leading an hour long all levels class designed specifically for athletes on Sundays at 11 am and Wednesdays at 6:30 pm, and Vanessa Strunk, a certified yoga instructor who specializes in trying to make you sweat, will be teaching at 9:15 am every Tuesday. No experience required for the all levels class. First classes is free. Regular classes are $10 or purchase an unlimited monthly pass for $40.
Anyone who says Dallas isn’t a bicycle friendly city wasn’t at Cranksgiving on Saturday, November 21st. Over 60 bike riders showed up to the 1st annual Cranksgiving event in Main Street Garden in Downtown Dallas. They were bundled up to stay warm in 50 degree temps and 30 mph wind gusts that almost knocked some people over. Despite the weather we couldn’t have asked for a better event. And the added wind just added a little extra competition to the day.
Cranksgiving is a food drive on two wheels. Part bike ride, part food drive, and part scavenger hunt. The event started in New York City in 1999 and is now a nationwide pre-Thanksgiving tradition. Local Hub Bicycle Company and Bike Friendly Deep Ellum are excited to bring the event to Dallas this year!
Cranksgiving is a free event to enter where riders use a manifest to ride to designated grocery stores in a 10 mile radius of the starting point and purchase food items that are all donated to a charity for Thanksgiving Diners. All of the food collected during the Dallas Cranksgiving will benefit the StewPot in Downtown Dallas.
