BIKE INVENTORY ALERT: Current bike availability is low nationwide, but we still have hundreds of bikes arriving on a weekly basis. Many of these bikes won't make it to the website because they will go to customers that have placed a preorder with us. The fastest way to secure a bike is to place a preorder with our staff. If you would like information on the availability of a specific model and/or how to prepay to be in line for the next available bike when it arrives, please fill out this form. (Preorders require payment.)

Holey Roller

Saturday, March 7, 2020


Holey Roller is a self-supported ride along mixed terrain roads with 50- and (new to this year!) 30-mile route options. The ride starts and finishes at Rocky Hill Ranch in Smithville, TX. The route takes you on gravel, dirt, and paved roads through the piney woods of Central Texas. There will be food and Real Ale beer waiting for you and your friends at the end of the ride.

We are limiting this ride to the first 200 registrants.


$40. Price includes a spot on the ride, lunch, and 2 beers. If you register by Sunday, February 16, you also get a free long-sleeve Holey Roller t-shirt! Riders are responsible for the Ranch's $10 parking fee. Please bring cash for parking. The event is rain or shine and there are no refunds.


Ride packets can be picked up Thursday, March 5, at Bicycle Sport Shop, Lamar from 5-7 PM or Saturday, March 7, at Rocky Hill Ranch from 7:45-8:20 AM.

The ideal bicycle for conquering these gravel roads is one that can traverse them swiftly, perhaps one with drop bars to allow the rider to switch hand positions and to hunker down when facing a stiff headwind. But, it should also have enough seat and chainstay clearance to run tires with sufficient volume to take the edge of the rough and rutted roads. The ideal bike should provide more stability than a road bike, but be nimble enough to make quick course corrections to avoid other riders, ruts, cowpies, and rattlesnakes masquerading as sticks. Cyclocross and mountain bikes are great options.
