Endangered Species

Kona Ride 2015

August 11, 2014


In the bike business, travel for work and pleasure are often one in the same. The proportion of pleasure to work has never been more in favor of pleasure than it was this past week when we visited Kona’s HQ in Bellingham, WA.

The mountains, the ocean, the people, the bikes; I can hardly wait til next year!

Tomorrow is Cruiser Tuesday.

Meeting here at the shop at 7:30 for social lubrication.

Ride starts at precisely 8:17-ish.

Very mellow pace on a mix of natural and paved surfaces; slightly fatter tires recommended.

A single day of independence is insufficient to warrant a celebration, so we’re taking FOUR DAYS OF INDEPENDENCE!  Back Alley Bikes will be closed July 3rd through July 6th, and we’ll re-open on Monday, July 7th at 10am.

Typically, an ounce of prevention will save you a pound of cure.  Sometimes it will save you a pound of bugs…in your bike frame.

We (Almost) Made It!
