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.)

Skills 101 Clinic

skills 101 clinic

For many cyclists, getting on the bike and going for a ride is the easy part. What isn't so easy is understanding everything else that's involved with cycling. Join us for a skills-based clinic to go over the basics of road cycling such as when and how to shift, braking and stopping safely, what your saddle height should be, and much more. Whether you want to learn how to ride more efficiently or trying to find your confidence while on your bike, this class is for you.

We'll meet at 9:15 AM to sign waivers, answer questions, put air in our tires and fill up our water bottles. Please note - this is a clinic, not a ride. The clinic begins at 9:30 AM and will last about two hours. Participants must be 16 years of age or older. The event is shine only. We will send participants an email with a new clinic date the night before the clinic if it is rained out.

Private Skills Clinic

One-on-one clinics can also be arranged. Book a private, physically-distanced clinic here.

Have a group or corporate event and want to book a private clinic? Contact [email protected] to find a date and complete booking for a private Skills 101 Clinic for your group. 

Required for the Skills Clinic:

  • Helmet
  • Bike in good working order (Road, Mountain, and Hybrid bikes all welcome)
  • Water and snacks

With an International Mountain Biking Association certification, she is following her life’s passion to help all riders experience the pure joy that riding a bicycle can bring.


"I cannot say enough good things about this clinic I just did! I came into this genuinely from the place of what I know about bikes is they have two wheels. That's it. Laura Neighbors explained so many important and basic things about riding my bike and using my bike that I went from basically scared to death to get on the bike to pretty much ready to hop on and go. She obviously has so much knowledge and expertise, but is also a great teacher and knows how to explain things without being condescending. She totally just makes things make sense. Also, she is really funny! Yes, I work at Bicycle Sport Shop. However, I am a total beginner. And I cannot recommend this clinic enough for any other women who want to start cycling and really don't know where to start."

"I have been staring at my bike for 2 years...not knowing quite how to begin our relationship. You gave me the key & opened that door for me yesterday & I now have the confidence to begin what I hope will be a beautiful friendship! I'm so excited to be riding again - all thanks to you!!"
