The National Bicycle Dealers Association (NBDA) launched a new program at Interbike 2012 that rates bicycle stores in North America against the highest performance levels in the industry, with the goal of identifying and promoting “America’s Best Bike Shops.” The program defines the characteristics of “America’s Best Bike Shops,” and uses the results to lead bicycle shops to become the best they can be. It rewards the top performing participants for their achievements by providing recognition to consumers and the bicycle industry.On September 18th the first day of Interbike, the list was released and BEACON CYCLING was on it. Our thanks to the NBDA and our customers for helping us get there!
Speed Wash And Dry - A handy trick for traveling cyclists is speed clothes washing and drying. Ideally, you'll always ride in clean gear because dirty shorts increase the chances of developing saddle sores. Unless there's a laundry mat nearby, though, it can be difficult to wash your pedaling pants when you're traveling. If you're lucky, it might be a hot day and scrubbing them in the motel sink and hanging them to dry might work fine. But, let's say, it's not warm. Or, that maybe you forget to wash them until the next morning. How do you manage to get them ready in a hurry? It's easy: Wash them thoroughly in the sink. Then roll them up in a towel and wring (get a friend to hang on to the other end of the towel) to quickly dry the shorts. If you do this several times using different towels, you'll be able to almost completely dry the shorts in minutes and they'll be clean and ready for more miles.
