Duke’s Cycle 2014 Shop Ride Program

It’s time to start the Duke’s Cycle Shop Ride Program for the summer cycling season. Hosted and guided by Duke’s Cycle Staff and members of our Duke’s Cycle Cannondale LapDogs Race Team .

Duke’s Shop Rides are meant to encourage our customers to get out and experience the joys of riding in a safe social and supportive environment. Shop rides typically attract riders of all skill and fitness levels and as such are non competitive and no drop.  These rides are about fun and learning -  as such they are a great opportunity for team members to connect with the larger riding community and share enthusiasm, skills and expertise.

Starting on Sunday, June 1st, we’ll be offering a series Duke’s Cycle Shop Rides with options for both Road and Off-Road participation.

Sunday Morning Road Rides, 8:45 am (Ride Leaves at 9:00am)

Every Sunday morning – weather permitting. These rides will start and end at Duke’s Cycle (625 Queen Street West) and will be planned around a 2 hour ride. It is our intention to make these rides a social opportunity as well a chance to work on fitness and group road riding technique.

  • Michael Cranwell
