Come bite off a portion or all of this 90% gravel expedition that traverses from Texarkana, AR to Tucumcari, NM., presented by our homies at Spinistry. The Mini RAT is a three day option that ends at Johnson Branch State Park where OCBC will have a support tent set up for all riders. Even Mini RAT participants will get the chance to ride the NETT (North East Texas Trail/Chaparral Trail), a beautiful and developing rails-to-trails project. Check out the Spinistry site for all the details.

I personally love touring for many reasons: the vast open road, time to think, ever changing scenery, camping, challenge, and on an on. I have found that the gravel roads lend themselves to be less traveled and offer nicer views that most people do not get to see. If you have ever thought of doing a long tour or something crazy like Tour Divide then this is a great option for you to see what it’s all about — education! Extra nice that there will be many people out there in case you do have mechanicals or just plain get too tired or burn out.

Oh and if you do enjoy it, maybe you will be lucky enough to win a Salsa Fargo! Any participant could win this beautiful burly bike in the raffle. Register here.

Win a Salsa Vaya or El Mariachi frame.

Win this frame minus the watermark.

While it’s only a few weekends before we get our BOO-BIKE-Q on, you can get in the spirit of things early by snapping up a few raffle tickets to win your choice from a selection of Salsa Vaya or El Mariachi framesets. Tickets are available at the shop, or the evening of the little shindig at Boulder Park on November 2. $5 per ticket, with the proceeds going to Promise House here in Oak Cliff. You don’t have to be present to win, but you can trust us when we say that you don’t wanna miss this party.

Get to O.C.B.C at 1 p.m., get your manifest, scope the checkpoints, start plotting on how you’ll come in first for the cash prize, then hit the road. Here are the basics of an Alleycat race if you have no idea what I’m talking about.


Need a ride that you didn’t braze together with map gas and no flux?  Try this for some gofast (nice reflectors). 



Months of preparation come to a culmination this Friday night with the grand kickoff of Cyclesomatic. Join us for a ride and a movie on Friday. Can’t make it? No worries. Cyclesomatic is a 10-day celebration throughout Oak Cliff with bicycling events for all ages.

Click for a complete list of events. So so so many great happenings. Get on your bike and come ride, chill out, and play with us.


Turnout was greater than we could have possibly imagined. Hopefully we’ll have a similarly fantastic turnout once we officially open our doors for business.

Thanks again to everyone who showed up, and even more, to all of our neighbors who put together this shindig. We feel so lucky to be a part of a true neighborhood.
