Summer Scavenger Hunt Saturday – June 14!

 

The event we’ve all been waiting for… our summer scavenger hunt!

Registration is $5 and will begin at 1 pm at Retro City Cycles; Scavenger race 06-14-14race will start at 2pm.

Participants will receive a list of easy to Google clues 15 minutes before the race begins. They will be able to Google these clues and uncover the locations before the race begins, giving them a chance to plan their route. Participants will take a “selfie” at each of 7 locations to prove they were there. First Place Team and First Place Single Rider will be recognized with prizes.

Race route will be 15-20 miles. All experience levels are encouraged to enter this race. There is no set route and it will be based on a time limit. You can set your own pace, route, and ride within your comfort level. So invite your friends and/or build a team! (up to four people on a team)

Santa Cruz Bikes are Here @ Greenway

Santa Cruz Is Here!

Come rent one for $70/half day(4 hours) $80/full day(8hours) $90/ 24 hour rental

SuperLite 29

29” wheels and 100mm of single-pivot suspension combine in a deceptively simple design that pays attention to the details.
Like higher leverage ratios on the small and medium sizes to ensure lighter riders make effective use of the travel.
And industry-leading standover and frame weight for a bike of this class.

The Superlight 29 rolls and pedals with such efficiency you’ll have gone the extra mile before you even know it.

5010

5010 pushes further into the realms of 27.5” possibilities.

Developed using what we learned from Bronson, the comparatively lower bottom bracket height, shorter chainstays and 125mm of VPP travel give 5010 its snappy, nimble, ride.

Responsibly offered in Mountain Rescue Orange, a 68° head angle and 6lb frame weight adds climbing agility into the equation, defining 5010 as the tool for that back country mission you’ve always planned.

Heckler

Santa Cruz Bicycles

The new Heckler comes straight off our All-Mountain Menu at Happy Hour. A killer Santa Cruz at killer price.

With 27.5” wheels, 150mm travel and the same super awesome geometry as the Bronson, there’s been no half measures during this intervention.

Tallboy

When Tallboy first launched, it wiped the floor with everything in its category.

Awarded “Bike of the Year” time after time, the balanced geometry and proprietary lay-up created a killer package that didn’t need meddling with for over four years. And still doesn’t. 100mm VPP™ suspension. 29″ wheels

Some upcoming events, something for every rider!

Critical Mass Orlando – April 25th – Science Center Parking Lot – Any Bike Will Do

 

Critical Mass is a casual bike ride starting from Downtown Orlando and going wherever. Cars rule the road every day, but one day a month we get together to celebrate our love for bicycles and have fun riding our bikes. This is generally a slow-paced ride where persons of all skill levels can participate. People start gathering around 5:30 and we roll out around 6:00 pm.

 

 

2014 USAC FLORIDA CUP – Lakeland – May 4 – Carter Road, Lakeland – USA Cycling MTB race

 

Tour of the Quilt Country – May 4 – Trenton, FL – Endurance Cyclocross

The GCX group is pleased to announce a limerock stage ride on Sunday 4 May as a last hurrah prior to the long season of hot months. Gilchrist and Levy counties each have quilt shops and quilt museums, so it is obviously “quilt country.” But they also have a great network of low traffic limerock roads. We’ll mostly be riding on a mix of farming and timber roads so a CX bike is optimal. You will see only one traffic signal over the 107 mile route.

Bike To Work Day 2014 – May 9 – 900 East Princeton, Orlando – Any bike will do

Save the date for our annual Bike To Work Day with Mayor Buddy Dyer!

Please note, date has changed to Friday, May 9, 2014!

Every year, Retro City Cycles puts together a team… and we have won the largest team the past three years! Please join us! (Stay tuned for t-shirt info)
