Great Ways to Celebrate Labor Day on Your Bike 

August 30, 2018

Labor Day weekend is the last chance to enjoy summer for the year.  Most celebrate the holiday with cookouts, family get to gathers, and parties.  At Peak Cycles Bicycle Shop, we encourage you to get the most out of your Labor Day by riding your bike!  

With fitness levels high, late season rides offer a chance to experiment with ride routes, different bikes, and even different cycling accessories. Without the pressure of training or getting into shape, the freedom of late season riding brings a fresh approach and a relaxed casual ride attitude.  So, why not have an adventurous Labor Day?  

The obvious way to experience adventure is to ride a new route or trail. Our post,  Labor Day – 20 Labor of Love Bike Rides offers the top 20 Front Range bike rides to celebrate Labor Day on your bike.  Another option is to check out 303 Cycling Calendar for events and rides or investigate some Front Range Cycling groups on Facebook to explore new ways of engaging with others.  

Experimenting with new bike parts is fun and doesn’t have to be expensive.  You can Save Big with Peak Cycles Summer Bike Blowout Event.  Whether you need a new bike, cycling clothing, bike parts or cycling components, you’ll find the best deals at Peak Cycles Bicycle Shop. Maybe you don’t need anything “new” per se, but you need to stock up on bike parts that wear out with regular use.  Don’t wait until you hear odd little noises or you notice that your bike is taking too long for the brakes to engage before replacing worn parts. 

Speaking of replacing bike parts, the long weekend provides some extra time to do bike maintenance.  Our post, Spring Cleaning! 4 Essential Bike Maintenance Tips to Get Your Bike on the Road, offers tips for bike maintenance.  When in doubt, stop in the shop and ask one of our bike mechanics for maintenance suggestions or schedule time to service your bike.

If you are too spent from the season to ride, then take the time to do some 2019 goal planning.  Consider doing a year end review and plan for the year ahead.  This may inspire you to dig a little deeper at the end of this season and prepare you better for next year.  

As a reminder, our shop BikeParts.com offers a huge selection of road bike partsmountain bike partsBMX bike parts and more. If you need it for your bike, then we have it! Because we sell our bicycle parts online, we are able to help customers all over the world.
