Spring is taking it’s time to pop here in the Midwest this year, so we have pushed back the timing on our kickoff to spring event….along with giving it a new name and kicking up the fun a bit too! What was previously known as March Madness, here at the Surgeon, is now the ReCycle! We’ve taken the best parts of the Madness (used/demo/blowout deals) and added some more fun with rides rolling throughout the day and a party that harkens back to the all-day affairs we used to throw down.
Starting the day off at 8AM Saturday, April 7th, we will open the doors to all, unveiling tons of screaming good deals on a great selection of used bikes and gear from you, our customers, with a few from our demo fleet and left over blowouts. Grab a locally sourced danish and a coffee as you scour the store for the great deals.
The real fun of the day; THE RIDES, kick off at 8AM too,:
• 8AM: A (35 miles) and B (30 miles) paced groups roll out.
• 10AM We take out our C Group Ride for ~20 miles of fun.
• 12 Noon The B Group is going out again for about 25 miles.
• 2PM We kick off the family rides, with our first Family Ride of the 2018 season, rolling for a 5 mile loop from the shop around the park and back.
• 4PM A Group rolls again for some fast paced fun, about 40 miles worth.
• 6PM C Group finishes the day up with 15 miles at a conversational pace.
The PARTY and the foods! We will kick this off with some amazing fried breads (donuts), and some great coffee, from 8AM -11AM, fuel up before or after the ride or just make sure you have enough calories on board to get through all those test rides! At 12 Noon, the grill lights up and we will have some of the best freshly grilled meats this side of the Mississippi, coming off hot all the way through close of business on Saturday. Drinks will be in the cooler too, ice cold and extra thirst quenching! The tunes will be rocking, the deals will be amazing and the foods will be out of sight!
BIKE and GEAR RECYCLING for YOU
Now if you read this thoroughly, you saw that we are offering the opportunity for you to turn your existing bikes and equipment into your own bike slush fund here at the shop! That’s right grab all your old cycling gear that hasn't seen the light of day in forever or that great bike that's been hanging out in the basement since the upgrade, and turn it into something new and fun. Bring your used gear/bikes to the Surgeon next Thursday 4/5 and Friday 4/6 during business hours and we will check it in, help you price it and then come the weekend we will do everything we can to sell it! We'll turn those sales into a FAT shop balance that will help fund your own little Bike Surgeon shopping spree! If for some reason your stuff does not sell, no worries you can get it back by swinging by anytime on MONDAY 4/9 to pick it up. And to make this super easy for all, anything left here as of Tuesday morning, we will graciously donate to BicycleWorks on your behalf.
