Calling All Cyclists, Swimmers and Hikers

You love the outdoors.  You cycle, swim or hike devotedly during our wonderful New England weather.  But now it’s winter.  The weather’s no longer great for any of these activities.  It’s not that you can’t continue to exercise, you just can’t have as much FUN doing it.

Or maybe you can.  Try cross country (XC) skiing.  It can change your whole attitude to winter.   XC skiing does not require a long drive to an expensive ski area.  There are innumerable woodlands, golf courses, backyards AND SNOW COVERED BIKE PATHS where you can ski for free.  You can get your exercise every day and actually look forward to snow.  And no one will judge your fashion sense.

We have superb Salomon XC equipment, and custom packages to save you money. 

Oh, we sell top-rated Dion snowshoes too. 



Need Sharpening?

Get ready for the snow at Pedal Power Bike & Ski!

Don't travel miles looking for top-notch service for your skis and boards.  Now you can bring your winter gear to the same folks you've trusted with your bikes for years.  Using our hi-tech Montana sharpening and waxing machines, we can give you the first class results you want right here at Pedal Power.

And while you're here, you can pick up discount lift tickets for Sugarbush.

 

Get Your GURU Fit On - Winter 2017

Why YOU Need A GURU Fit from Pedal Power

Winter is here, but this could be the perfect time of year 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 now, and be ready to go when Spring arrives.

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.  And Pedal Power is among the first shops to receive GURU's brand new motion capture add-on.

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.

Fitting is for everyone.  Ask the folks who’ve already been through Pedal Power's GURU fitting process: like the rider we fit last Spring, who checked a cross America bike trip off his bucket list last year.  Or the woman with a less than satisfactory hip replacement, who can now ride on the rail trail again.  Or the 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?

The Bruce Freeman Rail Trail Keeps Growing

Here's the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail in Acton MA, with the first steel spanning the Rt 2A Flyover.

And here's the Trail about a week later, with the full steel framework.  

The contract has just been awarded to build the Trail in Concord.  And we're working to extend the Trail into downtown Lowell, and Framingham.  If you'd like to see the Trail keep growing, you can join the Friends of the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail HERE.  

And if you're even more inspired, you can donate to the Friends of the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail HERE.

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

Beware Derailleur Damage! - One of the most common glitches, especially for off-road riders, is falling over or dropping the bike and bending the derailleur. When this happens, you might not notice. It's important to notice however, because once the derailleur is bent, bad things can happen such as shifting into the spokes, which may ruin the derailleur and might seriously damage the rear wheel and frame. Signs of a bent derailleur include sudden hesitation shifting into harder gears and clicking noises when you're on your largest cog (shift out of this gear immediately if you hear this sound because the derailleur is hitting the spokes and may get pulled into the wheel at any moment). If you notice these problems, bring your bike in immediately for us to check it out.
