Introducing the New 2 Speed 3G Isla Vista

Our local 3G bike distributor promised that the new 2 speed kick back hub would be available in the fall of this year.  Much to our surprise, they called us this week and told us some of them were ready.  So far we have the new Isla Vista 2 speeds in and they look and ride great. Come on in and take one for a test ride.

Many residents are not aware of it but Jacksonville has a velodrome that stands by what used to be the Cummer Lumber wooden bicycle track.  The Cummer Track was built almost 100 years ago when bicycle track racing was all as popular as NASCAR is today.

Mother and Daughter with their new bikes.

Mom, Joann, was getting fitted on her Specialized Dolce while her daughter, Jenica, was here to pick up, and test ride her new Specialized Myka.  From the looks on their faces, I'd say they both went home happy.

Update on the U.S. Bicycle Route System

From Adventure Cycling Association:

Missoula, Montana — Adventure Cycling Association announced today that its 2011 Build It. Bike It. Be a Part of It. campaign for the U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS) surpassed its $30,000 goal, raising over $31,000 for the project during National Bike Month.

Using social media tools, a group of dedicated fundraisers, state partners, and leveraged funds from a diverse roster of business and organizational donors, Adventure Cycling asked cyclists across America to donate $10 or more to help build this national network. In 2010, the first year of the fundraising campaign, Adventure Cycling raised over $27,000.

“This year we saw more than 400 individual donors contribute to the campaign, a big increase over last year,” said Julie Huck, membership director for Adventure Cycling. “The wide spread support for this project is truly inspiring.”

“Core supporters” — individuals who came on as dedicated fundraisers for the campaign — were key in helping reach out to cyclists across the nation through email and various social media platforms. These supporters pledged to help raise funds, and ultimately brought in nearly $8,000 to help Adventure Cycling reach its goal.
