Big ‘Ol Fun: Five Reasons to Ride Fat

It’s time to start riding fat, friends!

The benefits of a good winter ride are far reaching, no matter your background. The Fat Biking craze hasn’t caught on as a lark — it’s practical for many different reasons, and we’ll take a second of your time to outline them all below.

Winter Adventure: One of the primary reasons fat bikes are popular now is because of their ability to float in snow, making for yet another great winter sport — and means of commuting. If you’re looking to save some money on gas but can’t ride your spring/ summer commuter, then think of adding a Fat Bike into your arsenal! This versatile ride can handle anything you throw at it, which includes the salty slush of a wintry Main St. It’ll get you from point A to B faster than if you decided to run or walk, and it’ll keep your fitness in check along the way… Read More

Why Wool Underwear?

Merino Wool is just the best. Its versatility is unmatched in the wide world of fabrics, and to make things better it is all natural as well as sustainable!

This is why we love Icebreaker so much here at Cycle Solutions. Ethically produced with great style, it really is a super brand. It is also highly innovative, with the advent of MerinoLoft insulation — their warmest and most remarkable technology (you can read a little bit more about it here).

Today, though, we’d like to talk a little about underwear.  Read More

2016 Holiday Buyer’s Guide: Chapter One

Christmas isn’t just around the corner, folks. It’s on our doorstep caroling loudly about decking halls and dancing sugar plums.

Now is the time of year where you should really be thinking about what you’re gonna get your loved ones, because before you know it the lineups will be packed and you’ll be too occupied with eggnog and various celebrations to really buckle down and get the hard stuff done and out of the way. Wouldn’t it be great if all your gift shopping was in the rearview mirror and you could just spend the holidays relaxing with those for whom you’ve bought the most meaningful gifts?

It’s entirely possible, and we’re here to help.

This is the first in a three-part gift guide series, intended to help inspire your shopping adventures based on whatever budget you have in mind. From big-ticket items to the simple stocking stuffers, we’ve got everything you need for a one-stop errand.

To start, we’ll talk about the big kahunas. The flagships. The main events on Christmas morning. Read More

Kids Just Wanna Have Fun

Kids need the right gear, too.

We always talk about proper layering systems or the right bike fit when it comes to adults, and you should always consider the same rules when you’re shopping for your little ones. When you purchase quality apparel and bikes, you’re investing in comfortable and worry-free adventures for the tykes you love most in this world. We also stand by the children’s product we sell, because it’s what our own kids use every day.

Icebreaker

Tops, bottoms, and socks. We have lots of super-warm Merino baselayers in stock for kids of every age, from toddlers and up. It’ll do the same for them as it does for you — wick away the sweat and take away any risk of chill, while staying nice and toasty. They can wear it again and again between washes with no risk of stink, and it also looks pretty cool too! Read More

Buy It Once, Buy It Right — For Two Sports!

Nordic Skiing and Cycling: a match made in sport heaven. Both disciplines are the perfect complimentary off-season training companions for each other, considering cardio and also which muscles get a workout. It’s why we turn into your local nordic nerds once the snow hits, and why you’ll see us on Blow Me Down’s Ski Trails on evenings and weekends when we aren’t snowshoeing or spinning!

When it comes to apparel, Cross-Country and Cycling gear also mix and match perfectly.

Let’s go through it all, from the top down. Read More
