World is Wide Open

You might have noticed that the Schuck's Auto Supply shop that used to be on State Street near 15th is no longer. It's been replaced by World Cycle XC & Ski (formerly on N. Eighth Street), whose movement to a more spacious location with ample parking for bike-racked vehicles has been a long time coming. Although the bike shop quietly re-opened earlier this month, Friday, July 23, marks the official grand opening celebration, complete with a party on two wheels. Expect free giveaways, refreshments, and opportunities to win prizes from 4-8 p.m.

The real highlight, though, will be the Trek Factory Demo. Regional rep Dax Tobin will be at World Cycle's open-house party offering test rides on an assortment of bicycles, both road and mountain, from Trek. Keep in mind that Trek makes some of the best machines in the business. After all, Lance Armstrong rode Trek bikes to victory in all seven of his Tour de France wins, and he and Team Radioshack are currently on the newest, lightest line of Trek Madones chasing glory as this year's Tour wraps up at the end of the week.

If you miss the chance to pedal the bike of your dreams on Friday, Tobin will be at Bogus Basin all day on Saturday for the 2010 Summit Fest. Full lift access promises gravity-driven adrenaline rides on Trek's top-of-the-line knobby-tired fleet.
