  • Salsa Bike Demos - That's right! Come test out the Salsa Cutthroat on a short course around the farm.  Get a feel for just how great this bike is!  We've got one of each size.  Demos will be happening all day. You can pre-register to ensure you get a chance to ride with sarah@hubbikes.com

  • Wahoo - will be joining us with computers to loan out for the rides and other Wahoo goodies to check out so you can track all the data and training!!
  • Road Runner Bags - We think these are the best bags around!  They come in a variety of shapes, colors, and sizes.  We will have a nice selection for you to look at and ponder all the ways you can load your bike up whether it is for your trail ride or your dream bike packing trip.
