Roads a Plenty

Last night was a great Thursday road ride. You couldn't have asked for a more proper behaving wind. A little work on the way out and then a speedy tail wind on the return. The weather gets nicer every week so we hope to see more of you joining us on Thursday evenings.

Cheers

Quimper Trails WORK party

Hello Everyone~

The Wednesday night work parties are in full swing again. Meet at the Anderson Lake parking lot at or around 5:00. If you arrive later simply head up the connector trail. When you reach the top you will see the obvious new trail to your right. Lets all get out there and help, many hands make light work. Photos from the new trail will be following next week.

Happy Trails.

First week of group rides.

This was the first week of group rides leaving from The Broken Spoke bicycle shop. The weather has been very accommodating so we look forward seeing all of you out riding. We are leaving promptly from the shop at 5:15. Please call if you are on your way and would still like to ride with the group. Lets get out and have fun.

New Skate stuff will be coming in on Monday. Come and check it out.

I see the light!

So the light is returning to our skies in the evenings. also this coming weekend in daylight savings then the spring is in full swing. The Tuesday Thursday rides will be starting from the shop on Tuesday March 16th at 5:15 and will move to after 6:00 as the light moves higher in the sky.

A note from QTA:
Hi Guys.
Next week we will have extra daylight. So we will start having Wednesday work parties. We will be working on the return trail that leads from the lookout back to the start of the connector trail. DNR will start logging on the connector trail soon, so we need to get the return trail done as soon as we can. This will be a real fun project, and a little different than our other trail projects. Let me know if you can make it so I can have enough tools for everybody.
Thanks Jim

Dust off those tires!

We know we have been leading into this for a long time, if you consider a long time a month. The Tuesday/Thursday ride start in two weeks...... We know this is not much time to get things together, but you all can do it. Just to make it more interesting Pete will be riding his big knobby mountain bike on the Tuesday rides just to slow him down. We can't help what is going to happen on Thursdays, sorry. No really Thursday will be loads of fun.

Four weeks and counting to the 6 hours of Banner XC MTB race. Lots of fun to be had at the event. You can just be at the trail cheering or laughing. Pete and Nate are looking for volunteers to help support them at the 24 hours of Round The Clock on Memorial day weekend in Spokane. Stop in a let us know if you have nothing to do and want to watch a great race unfold all night long.

More new Skate Boards have shown up this week and are already moving our the door so check them out. More Antihero decks and shoes to come soon.

Cheers
The Broken Spoke Staff.

P.S.
Pete is trying to put together a locals rides booklet for ideas of where to go on Tuesday, Thursdays, and good routes for tourists. If you have a favorite road loop please go to gmap and trace your route. Then either save and send the link to the shop or print it and drop it by. We will create a binder full of rides for all abilities. We are working on the same thing for MTB rides.
