Q : What is the BEST day to ride around the lake?
A : We recommend riding around the lake on Sunday mornings… the earlier the better. Although this may seem surprising, there are less commuters and work vehicles on the roads during this day & time. We also recommend that you ride clockwise so that you’re riding along the lake for the duration of your adventure.
Q : What if you don’t have the bike I want to purchase in stock?
A : No problem! We will happily special order it for you. There is typically a 2-3 day turnaround time.
