Do Coffee and Cycling mix?

Do Coffee and Cycling mix?
I've always been of the mindset that coffee and cycling don't go together however great photo that Rick Hirschegger posted on our Bicycle Works Facebook Page proves that they do. "Coffee is notorious for exciting bladders." I think we all know that having bneen caught in a traffic jam somewhere with no bathroom in sight or 10 minutes into an office meeting when you realize that you had one too many cups of coffee. Coffee and riding have gone together forever, and coffee and espresso companies ha...

5 Reasons to Buy a Specialized Camber 29er

5 Reasons to Buy a Specialized Camber 29er
In 1987, I purchased my first "mountain bike".  My hardtail consisted of flat handlebars, wide, knobby tires, and a triple crank.  I used that bike for all my riding needs after selling my 1986 road bike. My mountain bike provided lots of memories, good and bad including several trips over the handlebars (some of which I don't even remember), as well as tackling sections of the Waterdown Trail system with my two boys.  With this bike, I learned the following: How to scream quietly...

How do you describe the Waterdown Trails for Cycling?

How do you describe the Waterdown Trails for Cycling?
Bicycle Works gets several emails during the course of the summer about the Waterdown Trail System.· This is due to the great area we have for mountain biking.·· Two questions that Bicycle Works often gets are: What's the trail system like? Do you have maps for the trails? Although I've lived in Waterdown for over 10 years, I admit I would have had difficulty answering these questions earlier this summer.· However, I've learned very quickly on the MTB group rides during this summer that Paul and...

Five Steps to Enjoying Exercise on a Hot Day

Five Steps to Enjoying Exercise on a Hot Day
I love being outside year round as long as I'm prepared.  In many ways it's much easier to dress for the winter than it is the summer.  It's been a challenging summer with temperatures reaching over 40 degrees Celsius with the humidity this summer.  Many days found me walking over 4 hours for my Canada Post job and cycling a total of about 45 minutes to and from work.  At the end of the day I felt tired but great. It hasn't always been that way with me.  As a teenager, a...

Road Cycling in Flamborough

A couple of weeks ago I had the priviledge of taking my 15 year old son out on the Bicycle Works KHS tandem.  We did so on the Thursday night group ride, a rare night with moderate temperatures.  Due to an error on my part (stating the start time of the ride at 6:30pm instead of 6:00pm), some riders had already left.  Despite the incorrect time, my son and I had the privledge of riding with one other cyclists who came late because they did what they are suppose to do and that is c...

Bicycle Works NOT the Only One Promoting Bike Helmets

Bicycle Works NOT the Only One Promoting Bike Helmets
I love when things come together.  In late June, Paul, decided to run a contest to give away a bike helmet with a value of up to $100.  We ran that contest for July and will soon announce the winner from all of our entries.  As the month of July concluded I found that Paul's emphasis over the month was not isolated. First, during July, Bicycle Works had the priviledge of having Catherine O'Hara from the Flamborough Review come in and interview Paul on helmet use and helmet safety....
