Rapha Festive 500

We love not only the classic beauty and functionality of their well made apparel, but are even more into Rapha offering us all an incentive to keep riding through the Christmas holiday week with the Rapha Festive 500 challenge. The idea is to rack up 500k worth of cycling and possibly win some fine items and at the very least just win some bragging rights. You can track your progress on sites like Strava, MyGarmin, and the like. We would like to help any of you who want to participate by doing a Christmas Eve and Christmas Day ride. I know most of us have family and friend obligations, but anyone who has the time and wants a riding mates is welcome to join us.

Let’s enjoy this beautiful weather together on a mountain bike ride before it goes away. You know the routine, potluck style. We will bring a grill or two, some ice chests with drinky drinks and a couple bikes.Image

4:00 at Boulder Park

Be a WINNER and support a great cause as we raffle off this kool 19″ Kona Unit along with a few other tasty treats including this limited print by the lovely and talented Amanda Pounds and a wire sculpture from our very own Maxwell Rasor on the night of our BooBikeQue 10|31|12.

$10 a ticket

Proceeds will go to Promise House Dallas

You do not have to be present to win the bike. Other prizes, you will have to be present to win.

We have a pretty big election coming up but we don’t have to leave our future in the hands of just elected officials. It’s so true that children are our future so let’s help pave the road in the right direction by helping here in our neighborhood with our youth. Promise House does great things and if you can’t donate money or buy a raffle ticket you can donate time which is priceless. Make change!

6:00 -10:31 Boulder Park

We are going to do a bit of riding, but you don’t need to ride to come have some fun with us. We’ll be bringing the grills and ice chests out some just bring yours smiles, friends, costumes, tricks, or treats if you like. You can guess we’re going to do a costume contest so get your big ole brains working on something great!

Pre ride viewing of costumes from the guys and ghouls. Then we will brave a haunted forrest ride at dusk so hang on to your garlic cloves for they may save your lives, and we might need them for dinner. Don’t forget the silver bullets either, they’ll help wash down the food.

Next week we will have two of our barbaric bike racers going to tackle the Trans North Georgia Adventure, a self supported race across the Smokey Mountains. Why they choose to drink water purified only by bleach that they are taking, no one knows!?! Either way we wish them well. Follow their progress here at the Riding with GNR site where they may also post pictures of them cuddling with wildlife and the occasional local (hey, it’s gonna be chilly out there).

Germs will be riding on a super spectacular Salsa Spearfish and Ray will be on some cruddy Crack’nFail Flash.



If you couldn’t get off work this weekend like me and want a local ride that is as beautiful as kittens cuddling, come out with us on the Sunday Spandex ride and we’ll do the Sugar Ridge loop. Memorial Sunday 8:00 at OCBC.

Spring is all about crushing on refreshing saturations of color—Sky Blue and Bright Yellow—that’ll make you sit-up-and-beg. Introducing the upright Birdie (by Bobbin Bikes), a Dutch-inspired bike from England that just landed exclusively at OCBC in 3 and 5 speed models in the colorways mentioned and shown above. This bicycle captures the essence of urban city cruising. It’s designed with practical features–mudguards, chain covers, hub gears, and carrier racks-that support everyday cycling. As with the Linus brand of bikes, we’re proud to introduce this new line to Dallas so you’ll only find this here.
Of course accessorizing is everything so you’ll also want to check out our new Kautopia Designs bags from Shannon Page, some of which will also be exclusive to OCBC. They easily attach to your top tube and come off in a snap to become a wristlet—perfect for running errands and shopping.
Stop by and see both of these new collections.

Finally a Sunday that isn’t rained out!

If you aren’t gonna be with us at the Boulder 6hr Endurance Race on Saturday(watch out for Leslee), come on out Sunday and have a picnic with us at the Oak Cliff Nature Preserve. We’ll start the grilling at 3:30 and leave around 8:00. Come say hi and ride our bikes. We’ll have helmets on hand too.



Demo Router Medium


We just became the first and exclusive Foundry dealers in the area! These babies are fantastically fast carbon machines, all with tapered headtubes and press fit bottom brackets.  They have Mountain 29er, CycloCross, and Road rigs ya digs! I personally like subdued graphics that make people focus more on the beautiful lines of the frame. Got a shipment coming in a few weeks and cant wait to show ‘em off!

Could we ask for a better start of the year! We’re gonna bring our stuff out every Sunday until mother nature says “no more”. Feel free to bring some food and drink as well, we have two pits, night lights, and a few extra bikes to play with.
