Finally. A Guide To Help Us Be Like The Palm Avenue Bikers


I have a bike (pictured). It can get dusty. But I have one. It’s just a fixie. Which means I was cool 6 years ago. And now? Well, I have a bike only good for beer & Redbox runs. And I can only stop Flintstones style.

I need a new bike. A road bike. I may even want to be like one of those people with the bike outfits, riding down Palm Ave. But it looks like a whole thing, ya know? Like work or something.

Well thanks to IFHT, there is an entertaining step by step guide to show me and you how we can be like a Palm Ave Biker:

I definitely need a Recovery Beer just watching that.

If you’re ready to start adding road bikes and putting “yourself” on display riding Palm Avenue, make sure to hit up local places like Steven’s, Sunnyside, Fresno Schwinn, Rubber SoulHerb BauerCyle Path, and get riding.

Beer, Bikes and Clovis? Dammit.

It really saddens us to promote something that is partially going on in Clovis. But this involves craft beer and biking so we have to swallow our pride and post:

New Belgium Brewing and I Bike Fresno are helping BC's Pizza & Beer, Michelangelo's Pizzeria and Spokeasy Public House with this cool three-day event. Clovis still sucks.

It is Bike Month douncha know Fresno!? Plenty of things going on in town this month – Fresno is working its way to becoming a biking city, if we're not already. Wednesday is a very cool event called the Mall-to-Mall Ride…actually it probably WAS a cool event since you're probably reading this too late because we totally suck ass and only posted about this the night before…*sigh*

What would have happened is you would have joined up with other local cycle-heads at Manchester Mall and had a escorted ride to Fulton Mall. More details on I Bike Fresno.

Yeah so we missed that. At least there is Bike To Work Day on the horizon.
