Rocheport Ramble
Jul

9:00 AM09:00

Rocheport Ramble

The Rocheport Ramble is a casual, self-supported gravel ride on July 8 starting at Walt's Bike Shop then heading out to Meriwether Cafe & Bike Shop in Rocheport for lunch and drinks before heading back again. Riders are simply encouraged to start at 10:00am and follow the route suggested, though those that deviate from our proposed plans certainly won't be punished. Prefer to ride the Katy Trail the entire way? Great. Our planned 50 mile route tours some of our favorite gravel roads north of I-70 then returns on the Katy and MKT trails. The roads on the first half of the loop are hilly and segments can have thick and chunky gravel. Some sort of gravel or touring bike with wider tires is recommended, though the "run whatcha brung" mentality is always respected. Be advised, this ride is a completely and utterly self-supported event and riders should be prepared as such. However, should the need arise, cyclists tend to be a friendly bunch, so any mechanical or emotional problems can likely be remedied. As is the nature of group rides, paces will vary and groups will form. See someone riding by themselves? Invite them along. You never know what kind of treats might be hiding in their basket bag.

The Epic

The Epic

"You can feel it right?

That itch to do something exciting, different, and maybe a little crazy. We weren’t meant to spend huge chunks of our day plugged into the internet, stuck in traffic, or glued to a desk. Our natural human instincts are being ignored, and it’s time to do something about it.

The Epic is your opportunity to break the pattern. Yes – you will be taken out of your comfort zone. Yes – you will have moments where your body and mind are screaming for you to quit. But – your strength and resilience will see you through.

Upon finishing this epic adventure you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you took this beast of a race head on and conquered the day. You can’t put a price on that amazing feeling of accomplishment.

Your epic adventure begins soon!"

Movie Night at Walt's - Breaking Away

Join us Tuesday, November 28 for our first MONTHLY movie night here at the shop! This month we'll be screening one of our favorites, Breaking Away. We'll have snacks and beverages on hand, but feel free to bring your own.

"This charming, Academy Award winner (1979, Screenplay) cycles high on comedy as four friends come to terms with life after high school. When top-notch cyclist Dave (Dennis Christopher) learns that the world's bicycling champions are always Italian, he attempts to turn himself into an Italian, driving his parents (Barbara Barrie, Paul Dooley) crazy. But everything changes after he meets the Italian racing team-an encounter that ultimately leads him and his friends (Dennis Quaid, Daniel Stern, Jackie Earle Haley) to challenge the local college boys in the town's annual bike race."
