These past days we have been slammed with activities and I apologise for not shouting out for nearly a week. So here are some updates.
Last Tuesday we had an interesting visitor, his name is Carlos. Carlos is from South America and he is riding his bike around the world. Carlos stopped in at May Street Bicycles in a desperate state. His rear derailleur was stuck in his rear wheel. So Matt took his mountain bike loaded with 90 pounds of luggage into the shop and began unloading his bags. Upon investigation, his chain was shot, along with a destroyed rear derailleur and derailleur hanger. As well, he had busted spokes. Unfortunately, we were not able to help in getting the bike road worthy until the next day. We had to get the derailleur hanger sent by UPS overnight from JBI importers. Although Carlos was disappointed for the 16 hour delay, he did mention he was glad it did not happend when he was riding in Cuba. He was surprised that the repair bill was a fair price. He was back on the road by mid day on Wednesday with a planned stop over in Mebane, NC. To learn more about Carlos' adventure check out his website here: http://www.cleteando.com
On March 26th we hosted our 3rd Team Adaptive Duathlon Training Event at Weymouth Woods Nature Preserve. We were excited to have such a fantastic turnout. We also had Setup Events' Andrew Silbereisen volunteer and donate his expertise and event equipment such as chip timing, banners, barriers and Start/Finish Arch to make our event a grand success. We also want to thank our sponsors for donating their products and services: Hammer Nutrition, W3, Cactus Creek Coffee, JBI Imports, and Orbea Bicycles. It was great having the Orbea Demo Crew at the event to have participants and spectators test ride and race their great machines. I raced on the Orbea Oiz and it was fantastic!
We also received a load of Orbea roads bikes that are on Warehouse Close Prices. Check out our close out page for pictures and prices.
Also stop to place your order of our new shop cycling kit.
On April 14th at 6pm we will have a wine and cheese social at May Street Bicycles. A donation of $10 will be greatly appreciated as a fund raiser for Team Adaptive. More information about this social will be announced soon.

May Street Bicycles is not your typical bike shop. Sure we sell awesome bicycles, provide bicycle repairs, and rental bikes all at great prices. But we do a great deal more such as dynamic bike fitting, metabolic testing, altitude training, and personal training.
