Morning Madness:)

For the two years I’ve lived in Denver, I’ve frequented Velowood. The reason why just came to me and it is hilarious as to why I’ve returned to their shop time and time again. Location! Location! Location! Maybe a mile and a half away tops from where I live, it’s all downhill from 8th Avenue and if you take Washington to Sixth and catch all of the traffic lights while green, it’s intense, because by the time you get to the left which represents Sixth Ave you’ve built up a significant amount of momentum and you can cruise right over to Marion outdistancing cars headed East. Yup, with that ride and the patience of Victor, Joe, and the shop technicians it’s been a easy choice to frequent. The picture taken speaks to how comfortable residents of the  neighborhood that border Velowood Cyclery are with the shop. Summer time is approaching?

Why not ride? This shop ensures that you can:)

First snow 2011

The leaves are lovely…
until they get wet.

Then they become dangerously slippery.
Watch yourself out there.

Just like a car, but worse, your stopping distance becomes greater when wet.
Go slower.
Slow down well before intersections.

Watch the corners and brake carefully.
Having your rear tire slip is disconcerting.
If your front tire slips, you fall over.

In the wet your wheel rims and brake pads pick up much more grit.
You can hear it.
It degrades braking and wears your rims and pads.
Wipe your rims and pads when you get home from a wet ride.

And get your brake pads replaced if needed.
We remain open through the season. Need some lights?
