We Paddle Kayaks

Imagine gliding silently through the water listening to the sound of nature. A slow float with a fishing pole, or a time trial with an intense upper body and abdominal workout, lots of possibilities exist when kayaking. Stop by and see the new lines of Swift and Prijon kayaks. And look for regattas and demo days at the Expedition Co.

Drew's Daily Cycling Tip

Stop Watch - Don't forget to regularly check your brake pads. Look at the surfaces. When new, most pads have grooves in them. When these grooves start to disappear, it's a sign to replace the pads. Depending on the design some are easily replaced, others require tools and know-how. We're happy to advise if you have questions.

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

sealant

A usually latex-based liquid with some type of small particle mixed in, that's put inside tubes and tubeless tires to fix flats before they can happen. The sealant particles seal the hole almost immediately so you can keep right on riding.
