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

Components Care – Riding loosens things on your bike so it’s smart to check major components every month, or so. Don’t just look at things, though. Break out the right wrench and try to tighten them! Check the pedals, crankarm bolts, chainring bolts, seatpost binder bolt, stem and handlebar bolts, pedal bolts and any other bolts on your bike. This will only take a few minutes and it’ll help ensure that your bike runs trouble-free.
