We recently hosted a bike parking lot at a local event. While at the event the shop provided a secure area where event patrons could place there bikes. So there was no need to bring along a lock! It was a HUGE success!
At least a couple of times a week, we have someone come in and they tell us a story about stolen bike. While we can’t provide security all the time for you, we can offer you some piece of mind. We sell Kryptonite Locks at the shop in stock we currently have U-lock, and with a key and combo.
Here is a link to some videos on how to lock your bike and what type of lock you will need. Stop by 2500 South MacArthur for more information.
The CCC is coming up on the Sunday after Labor Day (September 13th) . This is not only one of the oldest cycling events in central Illinois it is the premier cycling event for the Springfield IL bicycle club.
This is an ideal event for a first time cyclist! First (and foremost) it is not a race!!! This is a purely recreational the ride.You choose the distance (options are 10, 25, 40, 62 and 100 miles) over flat to slightly rolling terrain.
The roads are entirely paved. Some of our roads have a little gravel on them. The club utilizes low-volume (but paved) county roads whenever possible. They will modify the route when needed if road conditions change due to any road resurfacing work.
Have you been training solo? If so don’t forget that you can still join us on Monday Nights for the Monday night group ride. We leave the shop at 6:00PM see you then or at the Capitol City Century.
As we move into the 2014 cycling season we will again be hosting group rides on Monday nights! Our group rides are a great way to stay in shape, train for an upcoming event, and meet new friends!
These rides are geared towards all levels of riders (and are weather permitting) and FREE of charge! Just bring your bike (in good working condition), a helmet (required) and a water bottle. Please arrive a little early to set up your bike before the ride. We will start at 5:30PM at the Bike Shop. Head out to Chatham, regroup there and then head back to Springfield. These rides will feature at least 2 Ace staffers; one to lead the group and one to bring up the rear in the event of a breakdown.
