It is hard to believe that we just turned the calendar to September. This is always a fun time in the world of bikes. The mountain and road race calendars are just winding down (the Mountain Bike World Series is happening this weekend and the final Grand Tour is in its second week now) and the first cross race of the year here in the Portland area just happened on Saturday.
We also just had an amazing Portland Sunday Parkways that took place in our backyard. We were lucky enough to team up with the BTA (Bicycle Transportation Alliance) who had a Beer Garden in our parking lot to say thanks to their members both old and new. Our operations manager, Meiko, was out and about on her Pedigo educating possible new riders on just how amazing these bikes are. In fact, we may have a convert in our GM who is thinking about getting one now! Every customer that she went on a test ride came back with a smile and a few have already come in to place an order for their very own. Our mechanics went non-stop from 11:00 until 4:00 completing minor repairs and replacing a lot of tubes! All in all this was just another amazing Portland event and one that Universal Cycles is proud to be a Champion Sponsor of this event for another year! There is one more Sunday Parkways event coming up in September. Stay tuned for details in our next newsletter!
