On the Road Again

2/3 of the HC Crew is headed to Madison for the annual used bike parts extravaganza. Our hope is to unload lots of "treasures" we've accumulated over the past year plus some newer stuff. We will also be bringing a good selection of Minnehaha Bags.

HC will be closed Friday and Saturday, January 9 -10. The Saturday ride can and will go on if someone wants to take the lead.

Season's Greetings, Holiday Hours and Rides

First of all, the HC crew wants to wish all of you and your families the best of the holiday season. We appreciate your business and look forward to meeting your cycling needs in 2009.

Holiday Hours

Christmas Eve (12/24): Noon - 3 PM
Christmas Day (12/25): Closed

New Year's Eve (12/31): Noon -- 3 PM
New Year's Day (01/01) Closed

Holiday Rides

As we have in past years, we are offering short, leisurely rides on both Christmas and New Year's Days. This gives us all a chance to get out of the house and enjoy the winter wonderland before we tuck into big feasts.

Christmas Day and New Year's Day -- ride leaves the shop at noon. We will find a food/coffee stop that offers both sustenance and "atmosphere". Suggestions are always welcome.

Mark Your Calendars

After the holidays, things can get pretty quiet around these parts. So, in an effort to keep momentum going into spring, HC in alliance with Artisanal Imports sales guru Lanny Hoff, is sponsoring our first ever Winter Pub Crawl.

The details are still being worked out but it will involve biking to multiple establishments, drinking great beer and noshing on some great food, all in the company of some of the great cycling "personalities" the Cities has to offer.

Note: If you don't drink, come anyway. This is a social ride and will be safe for kids and small animals.

Date: Sunday, January 25 (it doesn't conflict with either of the Bowls -- Stupor or Super)

Time: noon'ish (lunch at Bulldog) to whenever

Once we nail down the venues, we will post a list and maybe a map. If you can't make it all, you can jump in at some point.

Don't miss it!!
