Mountain Trail Freeride Road Tri BMX Comfort Bikes – Freewheel Cycle Ontario – Everything for the cycling enthusiast!
The next Level 1 Bike Maintenance Clinic will be held on Saturday January 10, 12-3:30pm. Learn to do the simple repairs that will allow you to ride home instead of WALK home! Add to that some additional topics including:
-The proper names of your bike’s anatomical bits
-Good bike cleaning habits and techniques
-How to care for and prolong the life of your chain and drivetrain
Please give us a call so we can put your name on the signup list. We need 6 or more confirmed participants in order to run the class.
No need to bring your bike but it’s not a bad idea to bring something to take notes with.
The class costs $25 if you register in advance or $30 if you show up the day of. However, if you purchased a bike from us, we gave you a coupon which gets you into the class for FREE!
We are at Freewheel Cycle, 9 King St W Dundas, ON
Happy Trails and Hope to see you all soon!

Great news, everyone!
Freewheel’s popular Winter Spinning program is now offering TWO-HOUR classes on Sunday mornings from 9:00-11:00!
Although these rides aren’t *quite* as intense as the regular week night one-hour rides, they take you into a different endurance zone that a one-hour class can’t. Consider a one-hour indoor ride to be equivalent to a two-hour outdoor ride in terms of your energy expenditure. A two-hour indoor ride? Now we’re talking the equivalent of a three- or four-hour outdoor ride.
Words of wisdom: You will sweat A LOT during a two-hour indoor ride as your body attempts to cool off (and yes, we have a bunch of fans for air movement). We recommend bringing two bottles of water and a bit of food. Better yet, since your sweat contains lots of electrolytes that your muscles need for proper function, seriously consider adding a supplement to your water bottles to replace those vital nutrients. Freewheel stays well-stocked with goodies from Hammer Nutrition, Louis Garneau, and Clif.
Hammer offers HEED (High Endurance Electrolyte Drink) and Perpetuem (HEED plus extra proteins for muscle recovery) as well as energy-boosting gels.
Louis Garneau makes some of the best tasting energy gels in the business as well as their Extra Electrolyte Sports Drink.
Clif makes a handy product called Shot Bloks. These are chewy little treats packed with easy to digest sugars. Our favourite for electrolyte replacement is the Margarita flavour since it packs in three times the salt content of the other flavours.
In terms of cost, Sunday rides count as 1.5 regular rides. If you’re just getting into Spinning at Freewheel, we recommend doing a few of our one-hour classes before jumping into the two-hour rides but if you’re fit and/or experienced, don’t hold back!
Sign up by phone or in person.
Hope to see you here!
