Christmas Ride

I hope everyone has enjoyed their festive season! Some of the boys went on a bit of a Christmas ride last week and had a lot of fun tearing up the trails and doing some jumps. Justin was riding his Giant Reign X1 and JC and Dan rode their Giant Glory Experts. The bikes performed magnificently even if Justin couldn't stay on his bike. The bumps and bruises that occurred were all a result of rider error.

Charge Bikes

We got a sneak peek at the brand new line of bikes from Charge Bikes. They were AWESOME! Lots of cool Steel and Titanium bicycles for a few different styles of riding. Gears or single speed, skinny tyres or fat, Charge Bikes make some sweet looking rides. We've been told that we can expect a summer release of most of the bikes and components. Check their website for all information you'll ever need about the bikes.

Get on your bike, save money, cut emissions

Here's an interesting article by Susan Hely, from the July Edition of Money Magazine.

Get on your bike, save money, cut emissions
It's not surprising there's been a sharp jump in the number of Australians riding bikes in the last 12 months, given high petrol prices, congested cities and a desire for a cleaner, greener environment. And riding a bike is a cardiovascular workout without the gym fees.

There has been a proliferation of bike shops and bike websites catering for the weekend cruisers, the lycra-clad squad riders, the commuters and the trail riders.
