Ladies Ride!

Happy Wednesday!

What a beautiful morning here in western ma.  It's almost fall like which is both refreshing and sad.  I can't believe school has started and we are approaching a new season.  We will probably have just about 2-3 more rides left for the season, and we'll keep you posted as we wind things down.  If you have blinky lights, please be sure to bring them along.

TONIGHT'S ROUTE!!!  Back by request is a loop we did a couple weeks ago over in Monson.  You can view the route HERE.

I look forward to seeing you all tonight!

CEC Women

Hi Ladies!

What a great ride we had last week, even with the two flats.  It's good to have those experiences in a safe environment to get us use to what it is like changing flats on the road.  If anyone ever has questions about changing flats or wants some practice, stop by the shop and we'll gladly show you how.  Or better yet, hang out for a little bit and we might just have a customer visit us for a flat repair.  The roads around this area can be tough with the amount of glass and debris.

So what's on tap for tomorrow - another awesome ride!  You can view the route HeRe.  Looks like we have a 60% chance of thunderstorms tomorrow evening.  We'll all keep an eye on the weather and if need be, cancel the ride by 4:30 PM.  Call the shop or check facebook for updates.

See you tomorrow!

Hi everyone!  We hope you are all as psyched as us to get out and pedal our faces off tonight!  

Before we get into the routes for the tonight's rides, we wanted to let everyone know about the parking situation that we have for tonight...

Fat Trax is having a HUGE demo/event tonight in the Comp Edge/Fat Trax parking lot. That means that there will be ABSOLUTELY NO PARKING! If you plan on riding with us tonight, we ask that you park in the Pride far parking lot across the street from the shop. DO NOT park on the street, please.  Keep your eyes peeled for the CEC ambassadors to help direct everything and find out where we are meeting prior to the ride.

Now it's time for the routes!
