Thanks everyone for such a great summer. We really appreciate all the love we get from yinz. This weekend we will be shifting into winter hours meaning we will be closed on Sundays until next April. All of our other hours will remain unchanged.
On another note Kindred Cycles will be going on our annual shop retreat this year the weekend of October 6th. Katharine and I decided we are fed up with people asking us about the GAP trail to Washington D.C and us having to admit we have never completed the entire trip. Both of us have ridden the trail extensively between here and Confluence but neither of us have made it the whole way there. Both Young Master Nate and John Cotter have completed the trip. So this year we decided we need to get this trip under our belts. We will be leaving the shop after work on Saturday the 7th and taking the next few days to get down to D.C. Our plan is to make it to D.C on Tuesday the 10th so we can make it back to Pittsburgh to open the shop on the 11th. This means we will be closed on Tuesday the 10th.
Because we don't spend enough time making each other crazy already Katharine and myself will be riding a tandem on the trip down to D.C. Katharine is currently rebuilding the back wheel as our used Trek T100 double cross tandem we purchased had a cracked rear rim. We have been spending the last few weeks training on it and are actually having a blast. Justin and Chris (and Friends) from Freeze Thaw Cycles in State College will also be joining us which we are super excited about. Those guys are great. I plan on posting some pictures and words about the bikes and set-ups we will be taking with us in the next week.
Thanks Again Everyone for such a great Summer and here's to a great Fall!!!
