Time For A Holiday Urban Assault

with one comment

This is a great weekend for riding. There’ll be two awesome events happening in Dallas this weekend:

Pedallas is presenting their first alley cat called The Twenty. I believe all the racing slots are taken, but they’re inviting everybody to come down to watch and support the riders. It will kick off at 10:00 am at the Main Street Garden Park.

Also, don’t forget about Bike Friendly Oak Cliff‘s Santa Ride. It’s starts at 2:30 pm at the Main Street Garden Park. I’ll see you there.

Pedallas, one of the coolest bike blogs in the Metroplex, seems to have their finger on the pulse of all cool bike happenings in Dallas. They’re definitely a site that I’ll be watching.

Today, they posted about the Grand Opening of a new bike shop in Dallas called Transit Bicycle Company. If you’re free on Sunday, September 13 between noon and sunset, come check it out at 3839 McKinney Avenue.

BTW, This is the same address as the West Village Bicycle Company. One can only guess that this is perhaps a rebranded take on an already, really cool bike shop. I couldn’t imagine two shops at the same address.

I’ll need to see if I can drag the family to ANOTHER bike shop this weekend to check it out. LOL!

I’m hoping the shop caters more to the urban cyclist, rather than the road and mountain bike guys. Don’t get me wrong – all cyclists are awesome. I just think that there are plenty of shops around for those guys.
