Bright Lights for Night Flights.

  Riding with a light on your bike at night is not only the law, but is also for every one's safety. Our favorite lights here at riders are the front and rear Torch lights. They are duel LED lights that use reflectors to make themselves ultra bright, they are also durable, water resistant, tough gripping, and have replaceable batteries. The lights will stay on or can be set to a strobe pattern to make sure you are seen when coming and going down dark or lit streets at night. Drop by and pick them up before tonight's outing and as always ride safe.

Board back to school!

  Just in time for the cool season, our longboards and skateboards are ready in stock and looking for riders. We also have all the parts and safety equipment you would need to roll right out of the shop. But if carrying books is your main concern, now that it's back to school time, you might consider picking up one of our many back packs or pannier bags.

James' New Wheels.

 James Recently came to us with a bike that had been in his family for a while. Well actually it was the frame that was remaining of it. He carried it in on his shoulder and discussed with us what he would like to see happen to the frame.  After some brainstorming and number crushing with James, we came up with a solid plan. When James came back in a week he was ecstatic, and still is, about the bike and Riders:

 "The bike is beautiful, the team at Riders were kind, clear, honest and fair and it was really fun to get creative! I look forward to building my cannondale  frame with them!"

 Thanks James, nothing makes the us happier then to see the smiles of our customers. Keep riding and smiling.

Folding Baskets!

 As always within our wide selection of accessories we have in stock collapsible baskets which attach to the rear rack. Here we see them paired up and fronted by a removable wicker basket on this vintage 2-speed bike. Fashionable and functional, this bike looks good while full of laundry, groceries, or homework and packs up neatly when not carrying luggage or when locked up overnight.

If helmets could talk, What would they say?

 The first way of course is to wear a helmet, and if you don't have a helmet make your way safely to Riders so we can suit you up with a brand new helmet that fits your head and your riding needs.
Our friend, covered her bike helmet in clever sayings from an old daily quote calender.
Now safety can be safe and fun, but safety first.
