As mentioned in the title, the Demo will feature the latest bicycles from Cannondale, Diamondback, Giant, Rocky Mountain, and Yeti Cycles.

    We will also be hosting a FREE Poker Ride w/ Prizes from the shop and from various vendors.

Participants in the Road Ride will be given a hand in the Poker Ride after completion of the ride.

    29'ers

    I made sure to let our reps know that you are all interested in 29'ers. Cannondale said that they should have a couple on the truck so we can make sure you "big kids" have something to play on.

    I've never ridden at Sweetwater...what style of riding is the ride going to be? Should I bring my rigid singlespeed or my all-mountain bike?

    there will be some fire roads, singletrack, and some technical loose sections. it is a beginner/intermediate ride, so if you're able to pedal you're SS uphilll regularly it should be fine. An all-mountain bike would also be more than adequate and for the ride. Either way, I always tell people it's a nice easy loop that goes uphill both out and on the way back : ) Hope that helps. Eric

    I'm interested in the Cannondale Rize. Will I be able to take one out for a thorough test ride at least an hour? Does it cost anything?

    Thanks,
    Craig

    Hey Craig,

    Cannondale will definitely be bringing some Rizes for you to try out. You'll be able to take it out for that long, but we ask that you keep it only as much as you need as I'm sure there'll be other's checking that bike out. There is NO cost for the demo. We are asking for donations for the SDMBA and SDCBC or you can purchase raffle tickets to support them. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Bring the SS, I'll probably have mine.

    Thanks you guys, but we really couldn't do these events if you all didn't take time out of your lives to make it there. We're glad everybody had an awesome time, and look forward to the next go-round. Special thanks to all our volunteers and to all the companies that made everything possible. See you all around the bend.

    Eric
