TTR Bike Drive

11 Nov

If you have ever taken a look at the “Angel Tree” that Salvation Army does every year you will know that almost every kid asks for a bike. Bicycles are still one of the most empowering and enjoyable toys that a child can get at Christmas (or any other time).

The Flyer for the Bike Drive

We’re teaming up with Triple Threat Racing For this awesome bike drive. We are going to accept and tune up all the donated bikes. We are donating labor and giving the team a discount on parts needed to get the bikes ready for donation. New bikes will be purchased with the raised monies from the drive too. We’ll be collecting monetary donations and used bicycles/trikes/whips now through Thursday, December 5th. Drop off your donated bikes or monetary contributions at the Highroller Rogers location (402 S Metro Pkwy) M-F 10am-6pm, Sat 9am-5pm. 479-254-9800

You can also donate online at http://triplethreatracing.org.

Please feel free to forward this to any other teams/clubs/friends/etc that might jump on board. Together we can make a difference for these kids and spread the love we all share for our sport!

A Bright Idea

6 Nov

As the darkness closes in on our evening hours it becomes more important to have a good set of lights. The Serfas TSL-1000 is a great way to get both your headlight and taillight in one simple unit.

The battery pack has a built in led strip that allows it to double as a tailight.

In addition to the taililght feature the battery can also serve as a mobile power source for other small electronic devices such as cell phones.

Easy access to the port for charging other devices.

The 1000 can be mounted to either the bar, stem, helmet, or anywhere else you can get the mount to attach. It also comes with the optional remote to turn it on or off.

The remote allows for mounting the light in un orthodox ways.

Best of all, it is a Serfas. That means that it is reliable and backed up by one of the best warranties in the light game.

We have the lights in stock at both the Rogers Arkansas and Fayetteville Arkansas locations.

What’s with the Alias?

4 Nov

In today’s world of online interaction it can be easy to forget where the line between reality and fiction is. Cycling, in a way, allows us to morph into another persona for a time.

As a sport , cycling allows us to dress up in funny clothes, attack and counter attack our riding partners, and “win” town line sprints just like our heroes on TV.

Perhaps you prefer a more practical side of cycling. As commuters we can make believe that we are healing the earth one pedal stroke at a time as we wage war on car culture.

As triathletes we get the choice of three different activities to provide our alias. “I never thought I would discover my inner-Alias as a triathlete,” said Tara Costa, former Biggest Loser contestant “Training and competing in triathlons over the past few years, including my first Ironman finish, has been exhilarating and empowering on my journey to live a healthier life. This sport has the power to transform lives and Specialized is leading the way with all they do to support women in cycling.”

Unlike avatars and online profiles the person we become on the bike is completely based in the real world. Sometimes it is completely dictated by it. On the bike we can be whoever we want.
The power that the bicycle has to transform and inspire peoples lives is the same in adult life as it was the first time that your parent released the seat and you flew down the driveway under your own power.
