Get Your GURU Fit On - Spring 2016

Why YOU Need A GURU Fit from Pedal Power

Spring has definitely sprung and this could be the perfect time to take your cycling to the next level.  How?  Get a Pro Bike Fit today from Pedal Power Bike & Ski.  You'll improve your comfort and performance, and be ready for your next big ride.

Fitting is at the core of what we do; that's why we've included several links to demonstrate that.

Our revolutionary GURU Dynamic Fit Unit is unique, and it’s great (really!).  You can read all about it HERE

But guess what?  The system doesn’t make the fit.  A great fit still requires a great fitter, and you can read more about us HERE.

We recently fit an active and healthy 18 year old woman with no history of injuries and no obvious structural malformations.  She STILL needed a GURU fit!  Better still, a GURU fit from Pedal Power.  You can take our word for that, or read her surprisingly long story, with all the gory details HERE.

If we've got you intrigued, and you'd like specific details about scheduling, time, cost, and what to bring, click HERE.

Wouldn't this be the perfect time for YOU to be properly fitted?  At Pedal Power?

Thursday Night Roller Races

You're really not the cold weather type, hate short days, bike trainers, and spinning, but still want to have fun riding your bike in the winter.  It can be done.  Come visit Pedal Power for Roller Races!

Starting January 7th, and each subsequent Thursday for the next couple of months, Pedal Power will be hosting Roller Races.  Rollers are a set of three cylinders, set into a frame, connected by a rubber drive belt, and powered by your rotating rear wheel. 

What makes them particularly interesting, is that you can ride at virtual speeds of 30, 40, or even 50mph, and nothing holds you up.  Hmm.  Riding rollers helps your steering accuracy, balance and smooth (efficient) application of power.  And, they're certainly not boring, especially with our group.

Don't know how?  Someone will help you.  Races (mostly against yourself) start at 6:30 and usually finish up shortly after 8pm.  Bring your bike, riding togs, and rollers if you have them, and get ready for fun.

The Rail Trail Lives

This (lousy, but real) video was shot right behind Pedal Power Bike & Ski in Acton on Friday December 11th. As you can see, workmen are continuing to rip up railroad ties from what will become the new section of the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail. The railroad spikes were already removed a few weeks ago, and this is the next step.

An ordinary rail trail could probably be finished next year, but this is an unusually difficult section because of the 6 railroad bridges that need to be replaced, and the major roadway (Rt 2A) that will be spanned with a flyover.

Nevertheless, it’s really going to happen!

Electra - The Bike for Everyone Else

Don’t think of yourself as a cyclist?  A bit concerned about your balance?  Never felt comfortable on a bike when your feet can’t touch?  Got a significant other you just can’t hook on cycling?  Maybe your youngster’s having trouble learning to ride on two wheels.  Or maybe you’re just looking for cool styling.  We’ve got the bike for you – Electra. 

Start with comfort and control.  Electra has the patent for it. The Townie introduced Electra’s patented Flat Foot Technology® to the world and it was love at first sight. It created a completely different riding experience, with an upright seating position that lets you see the world better and place your feet flat on the ground whenever you want.  Many Electra adult and kid’s bikes feature Flat Foot Technology, setting a new standard in comfort and control.

Now add the styling.  No one can touch Electra on that.  You want colors, we’ve got colors.  You want flowers, we’ve got flowers.  You want flames, we’ve got flames.  You’ll have to see ‘em to believe ’em.

Come in today and see for yourself.

John's Tip of The Day

Basic Training Rule – Coaches will tell you that in order to maintain fitness you need to get in a ride at least three days a week. And, if you want to improve, it needs to be four or five rides a week, depending on your goals. A good way to fit in these workouts is to ride short on weekdays, perhaps during your lunch break, by commuting to work and home or by hitting the health-club stationary cycle. Then on the weekends, you can fit in your longer rides.
