August 29, 2013

Guess who is rocking the coolest bikes, the best bike parts, and crushing it in Colorado’s toughest mountain bike races?
You guessed it – Peak Cycles Racers!

We’re super proud of team riders Joshua Murdock and Weston Burcar who finished 2nd and 3rd respectively in the overall Epic Singletrack Series at Winter Park!  The Winter Park Epic Singletrack Series is a 6 series race with varying terrain, distances, and technical challenges.  Navigating those challenging races takes skills, talent, and of course, good ‘ole reliable bike parts.

Congrats to all of our racers!

At BikeParts.com, we do all we can to support our competitive and non completive athletes.  And while our racers can tell you, racing takes its toll on themselves as athletes, but also on their bikes.  As we’re nearing the end of the XC and endurance mtb racing season, many are shifting their focus to the cyclocross season and to getting in as many good, long rides before we start seeing much cooler temps.

Good reminders for any race or ride includes starting your ride with a clean and lubricated chain, well lubed derailleurs, brake pads that are in good shape and tires have the appropriate air pressure.  Stop by the Peak Cycles BIcycle shop to pick up any road parts or mtb parts you may need.  Don’t forget to high five our racers!

July Races are HOT and So Are the Temperatures

July 18, 2013

No doubt, the Colorado racing season is heating up and so are the temperatures.  Whether you are racing or casually riding, staying cool and hydrated is a must. We all know proper hydration is important for general well being, but as athletes wanting to perform our best, reaching and maintaining adequate hydration levels is a hands on management program!

Not only can dehydration impair daily life functions, but insufficient hydration fatigues your muscles, reduces your coordination and causes muscle cramps. This means, slower times on the bike!  We can’t have that!

Our fellow racers and cyclist have some hot events coming up: Tour de Steamboat, Courage Classic, Mt. Evans Hill Climb, Pikes Peak Cycling Hill Climb, Salida Classic, Winter Park Epic Singletrack Series, and the Colorado Freeride Festival.  Each event requires different hydration options and our staff at Peak Cycles Bicycle Shop can tell you what works!

Keep your body strong this summer.  Quench your thirst with the right hydration options we offer at BikeParts.com.
