Friday Roundup – Bicycle Bits & Pieces

Ruckus carbon fiber coaster and etched whiskey tumbler glass

  • Need a last minute, limited edition stocking stuffer? How ’bout a CNC cut carbon fiber coaster with transparent metallic Ruckus Composites logo and matching whiskey tumbler, which is masked and etched in house, too. The pair is just $20 while they last, liquid contents not included.
  • The TD Five Boro Bike Tour begins it’s “rush registration” on Tuesday, January 22nd, at 12pm EST. If you’re considering this ride, make sure you put this date on your calendar, the first come-first served registration was introduced last year and all 32,000 spaces were sold out in 24 hours! This is a fun 40 mile bike ride through all 5 of NY’s Boroughs and bucket-list worthy. We’ve done it with toddlers in tow (with a couple beer and ice-cream stops) and had a great time. This years’ ride date of May 5th should make for an extra fun time!
  • Win a BMC Granfondo BF01 Ultegra Di2 complete bike and a trip to the Tour of Flanders or the Paris-Roubaix. Details and enter to win here.
