Bikepacking in Jordan

Friday April 12, 2019 – 7:00PM-9:00PM
@ Freewheel Cycle

Tickets: $5 (available on EventBrite)

Join local bikepackers Paulo LaBerge and Heather Christine as they reflect on their epic journey through beautiful, rugged Jordan.

Beginning their journey not far from the Dead Sea, they rode southward to the ancient city of Aqaba. Along the way they befriended a camel, slept in an ancient Nabataean cave, explored a wonder of the world, pedaled (and coasted!) breathtaking stretches of the acclaimed Jordan Bike Trail, dined with Bedouins in their tent, and made the red sand dunes of the Wadi Rum desert their personal playground for a day.

Paulo and Heather will bring selected gear and talk about preparation, logistics, and expecting the unexpected.

We will be showcasing Trek bikes suitable for bikepacking as well as as a wide selection Blackburn gear. Refreshments and witty banter will be in abundant supply.

All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Bike for Mike.

Buy your tickets now and don’t miss out on this evening of entertainment and information. And bikes!

Tickets: $5
Available Here.

Marc’s 24 Hours of Indoor Training

Join us at Freewheel Cycle as we host a true madman, Marc Sinclair of 9point8, as he goes for a 24 hour indoor trainer ride to collect donations of non-perishable food items for Hamilton Food Share. But he needs YOUR HELP!

Saturday February 9th 12:00PM – Sunday February 10th 12:00PM
@ Freewheel Cycle

Marc will ride 10 minutes for every non-perishable food item donated. His goal is to collect 144 items. That’s right. By our math, that means he’ll ride around the clock. Marc will have his bike set up in store and begin riding on Saturday at noon. His epic efforts will continue, with the help of your donations, until noon on Sunday.

Marc is putting his efforts to good use by setting up a non-perishable food drive for Hamilton Food Share. A collection bin will be at the shop this week so bring some food items, and cheer Marc on as he embarks on this 24 hour journey!

And no, Marc doesn’t get to eat your donated food during his ride. 😉

How you can get involved:

  • Bring your food donations to the shop this week so Marc can see what he’s in for
  • Jump on your smart trainer and join him online in Zwift (rider: “Dundas Freewheel Cycle”)
  • Come by the shop on Saturday with high-fives, food donations and good vibes for Marc

Please note that regular business hours still apply at Freewheel during Marc’s ride. We will be open on Saturday from 10am to 5pm, and Sunday 12pm to 5pm.

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!
