The 12th Hour is the Darkest Hour

Sounds great.  Sign me up!  Red Bell is making a splash at the Village this year with it’s Final Descent Series.  It’s a 12 hour race this Saturday, mixing endurance with downhill adrenaline: two of a Jacksonite’s favorite things.  If you aren’t into riding the race, you can always enjoy the after party at Nick Wilson’s.

BikeWire + Fitzy’s = Recycling

Last fall Fitzgerald’s Bicycles was happy to find out that he could find someone to haul his old (heavy) monitors 4 miles to the recycling center.  If you want to see this video on the big screen, be sure to check out the last Bike-In Movie tonight!

In addition, Fitzy’s will be donating a Haro Cruiser to the raffle!  Beers under the stars, delicious brews, winning a cruiser, watching kids ride bicycles to save E.T. from the po-lice?  Yeah, those dinner plans can be pushed back a day or two.

Dig Day this Saturday!

The fine folks at the  Teton Freedom Riders are still getting after it!  If you have the time to help them help our trails, you shouldn’t pass this opportunity:

Give a Bike Tour comes to Jackson this Saturday

Adam and Christy Coppola are well on their way to be the first people to complete a self-supported bike tour hitting all 50 states in one calendar year.  All the while, they are raising awareness for charities like World Bicycle Relief and Achilles International.

Come join us this Saturday from 12-2pm at Fitzgerald’s to hear their stories and see their photos midway through their noble adventure!


You definitely don’t wont to miss out on this great event now in it’s second year!  Naturally, we’re coming to play too – in none other than the Bike Shenanigans!  What are Bike Shenanigans?  Hint: think bikes, mallets and blood.

Victor Velo Work Nights

From our friends at Victor Velo:

Victor Velo’s primary activities to date have been the construction of the Victor Bike Park and the organization and promotion of cyclocross racing throughout the fall in Pioneer Park.  Our future plans include improving the bike park and growing our premier cyclocross race, Moose Cross.

Throughout the months of July and August we will have volunteer work nights at the Victor Bike Park from 6 – 9pm.  The first work night is Wednesday, July 13th.  Bring gloves and we will supply the tools.

In addition to shaping the dirt jumps, we have lots of rock raking and weeding to do as well.

If you own a Skid-steer or a Bobcat, feel free to bring it and we will put it to good use!
