Support Your Local Race Scene.
CHOOSE LOCAL CYCLING EVENTS
ENSURE THAT THEY STAY AROUND!
A hot topic of late at the shop has been what is going on with the local mountain bike scene, what races we are planning to do, and how we can help support our local community. Currently Flat Tire Co. is helping to promote the local Bike The Wilds series. Some of these races have been around for nearly 20 years and were the first mountain bike races many of us participated in. Our shop and team members we’re bummed to hear that some races may be canned due to lack of participation in 2018. This is your local bike shop encouraging you to not only shop local but race local! The support circle goes round.
Western Pa. is home to some awesome mountain bike terrain. We are lucky to have mountain, gravel, road, and cyclocross events annually from various series. Race directors are often donating their time and proceeds from the events in order to offer you an experience at a place they love riding. By choosing to support our local race scene you are ensuring that these events will be around in the future. Without your sign ups races could disappear leaving our up and coming youth riders without the same great experiences we have been blessed with.
THE FUTURE OF OUR SCENE.
Bike the Wilds offers a great local solution to give your child a chance to try a mountain bike racing without having to participate in a series that involves driving long distances. Set aside a weekend and pick a race, each event in the series will offer both Highscool and kids races. If you are from our area (Greensburg, Pa.) many of the races in the series can be traveled to from 30 minutes to two hours.
