Cervelo's Triathlon/Time Trial Bikes Are Here!

Cervélo's P5 is one of, if not the most aerodynamic road rockets available. The engineers at Cervelo scrutinized every tube, angle and component to make sure the whole package is nearly invisible to the wind. Stop by the shop and check out all our fast sleek TT bikes in person and we'll show you why a Cervelo is your ticket to the podium!

The rain is holding off for now, so come and ride! We've got brand new bikes from Cervelo, Pinarello, Bianchi and more.

Join us for Our Shop Rides

One of the best ways to enjoy cycling is with other enthusiasts. We can help you learn the rules and find a group suited to your abilities and goals. We have TWO weekly shop rides:

Thursdays, 5:00pm: Out Meridian Ave towards the reservoirs, turn around at Calero - this ride is SUSPENDED till afternoon daylight comes back

Saturdays, 7:00am: 30-40 miles at moderate speeds (15-18 mph) and hills.

Meet at the shop with your bike, helmet, and fluids. Periodic re-groups.

NEW RIDE: Sunday morning "Waffle" Ride - meet at Everett Alvarez Jr Park in Santa Clara to roll at 9:00 AM. Twenty flat miles, mostly on paved bike paths, ending with coffee and breakfast near the shop. Casual pace, perfect social or recovery ride. Helmets required.

Today's Tip

Wider Roads Are Best For Trailers - Avoid trailer rides that include narrow roads. While courteous cars will wait for you, aggressive drivers may insist on passing dangerously close.

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day


(Say: an - air - o - bick) - Cycling or exercising at a pace that causes labored breathing because you're struggling to get enough oxygen. Obviously, you can't keep at it for long.
