here's a couple of bikes that we'd like to sell before the snow flies.

the first one here is a ladies step thru JC Higgins and in super condition

the second one is from a similiar era. Probably early 60's. A mens Sears bicycle also in excellent condition. 

your choice for either one...$300 each.

Bike the Bowl

From good buddy Andy A.

This Sunday is the MMA fundraiser Bike the Bowl. The ride is from Snowbowl parking lot to Point 6. We have a small turnout so we are looking for some more riders just to pump up the event. There will be no fundraising obligations or entry fees, you just need to show up bike and drink some beer. The ride starts at 9:30 (soft start). The band and pizza starts at Noon. Come up to ride or just enjoy the band and pretty ladies. The Althausers, Skinners, and Radlowski's will be up there all day. Come and bring the family.
Their will be a time trial from from the parking lot to point 6. The fastest recorded time is 59:56seconds. What's your time?
