UBG Sunday Urban Ride

Rides suitable for cyclists who are new to the sport (or who have not been on a bike for some years), family-friendly rides or any riders that feel a need for some mentoring. Note: please note that minors under the age of 16 cannot participate in rides unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Families with children should, in any event, confirm with the ride leader ahead of time that the ride will be suitable for their needs.

Targeted towards riders who have a few years in the saddle, who have developed some riding confidence and fitness and feel ready to move to the next level. Could attract more experienced riders who are looking for a relaxed or less aggressive ride.

Limited to experienced riders with superior bike handling skills and who are comfortable with a fast pace (probably including single and/or double pace-line riding) and/or hilly terrain, and the possibility of heavily trafficked roads. Advanced rides are less likely to be "no-drop" unless identified as such.

Buying a bicycle is different from most purchases. There is much more to it than just the product and the price-it is entering into a relationship. During the selection process this is evident in that you need to be able to trust your salesperson and rely on his/her expertise to make the right choice. After the sale, you want to be able to count on your shop’s ability and willingness to properly service your bicycle and recommend and provide appropriate products and services that enhance your riding experience. Jon, Jason, Tara, Danny, Kevin and I are passionate about bikes and cycling to such an extent that we each have made it our career. 

Check out our website and come talk to us directly and decide for yourself if you want to enter into a relationship with The Urban Bicycle Gallery, because deciding on your bike shop should be your first step in buying a bike.
