The weather this weekend decide to make Black Friday a little more true to it’s name and has shut off the power at the shop. We will be closed today, but back open tomorrow, Monday, December 2, 2019 with one last day of great Black Friday deals!
With colder weather upon us, many riders want to explore indoor riding options. Now you can immerse yourself into an all-new indoor training experience with Zwift! From the warmth and comfort of your own home, you can explore virtual worlds, train with structured workouts, and meet your friends online for social group rides. We have a Saris H3 Trainer setup running Zwift so you can visit Freewheel to try before you buy. You’re going to love it!
If virtual training isn’t your cup of tea, you can always sign up for our in-house spin classes for a more analog, face-to-face experience.
