Labour Day Hours

People, persons, patrons, peasants, pheasants*, with the Labour Day weekend going on right now, we have some changes to our hours, well, one change.

 

We are open our regular hours for Saturday and Sunday (10:00am – 5:00pm), but will be CLOSED on Monday. We’ll probably be riding bikes. I mean really, what else did you expect from us? Crochet? That’s a winter only thing, obviously!

 

We’re still here Saturday and Sunday to help you out though, so stop on by if you’re in the neighbourhood!

 

*If you know what this line is from, swing by the shop for a high five from Andrew!

The Season Never Ends – Dirt Girls Guest Ride & BBQ

Sunday September 23 – 2:00PM-7:00PM

Freewheel Cycle
9 King St. W, Dundas

There’s a party on the trails and you are invited!

The Freewheel Dirt Girls had a lot of adventures, meeting up with old friends and making new ones. Now it’s our turn to invite our friends to come ride our ‘home’ trails with us. A hearty welcome to friends old and new, and friends we haven’t even met yet!

We will be showcasing our awesome trail network to fellow amazing women mountain bikers with beginner, intermediate and advanced rides. There’s a fun group for riders of all skill levels.

  • Beginner: about 10km of single and doubletrack with less than 100m of climbing.
  • Intermediate: 15-22km mix of single and doubletrack as well as paved road. The climbing will include an on-road climb for a ride-total of approximately 300m climbing.
  • Advanced: 30km, a mix of road, single and doubletrack as well as more than 400m of challenging-but-doable climbing.

This is a women’s focused ride. Mates & dates are welcome to join in the fun so long as they respect our ride as a fun and empowering women’s mountain bike ride.

And after the ride, we will host a tailgate party in the parking lot of Freewheel Cycle with refreshments and a BBQ.

Get tickets here!

All this for $5? Seems pretty sweet, eh? How about knowing that your $5 is donated to Hamilton Burlington Mountain Biking Association, the stewards of our amazing trail network? As such, tickets are non-refundable.

No raindate; Mel guarantees we won’t need it. 😉
