Welcome!

Welcome to the official website for Bikeworks Albuquerque!

Here you will find all sorts of useful and entertaining info about our shop.

Basic info on hours and location can be found to the left.  Some info about who we are and what we do is linked to the right.  Scroll down and you will see our hopefully informative and entertaining blog posts, where we talk about hot new stuff in the store, races and rides we've recently done, and whatever else happens to bubble to the top of our distracted minds.

Here are a few photos of our shop, to help give you an idea of what we are all about.  Our shop is small, the pictures show the whole sales floor and repair area, all that you can't see is the bathroom and some backroom storage.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, hi there 2015! Boats! Santini! Borealis! Exclamation Points!

So, new year and such, eh?

Firstly, we'd like to say thank you to all our awesome customers for making 2014 our biggest year ever!  If we continue seeing this type of growth, I'll be placing an order for my Yacht in another 150 years or so!



(oldie but goodie!)
New Year? New Stuff!  After some serious down time without Bikeworks bottles to sell, they are back with a vengeance!


The Podium bottle from CamelBack is the best bike bottle out there, and it's even better when it says Bikeworks on it!

Whats that? You want to see more new stuff that says Bikeworks on it? Fine!


Arm warmers by Santini to match our jersey oh so perfectly. And....



Thermal insulated long sleeve jerseys.

We are loving all our new clothes from Santini.  Made in Italy goodness.

In other new news, we have a new brand! We are now New Mexico's first Borealis dealer! High performance fat bikes! Ride it everywhere, feel like a little kid, shit eating grins guaranteed! Exclamation points!!!!!!



I recently took the new Borealis up to Sandia Peak to try it out. And it was grand...


But the drive down was a little hairy.

"hmmm, looks icy. Better take a pic"

Danny got a balance board for Christmas...



And we finally had a Bikeworks Crew bowling night.  The most notable thing that happened was We's shirt, which was spectacular...

"the pink ball man, it's all about the pink ball"


Who else saw the mudman down on the Bosque over the past couple of weeks? Sadly, I think is now longer with us...



And in closing, do you know Mark Castelo? Because I totally stole his sunglasses..

(he thinks he's getting these back, ha!)

That's all I have for now (actually, I had written a lot more, but then Blogger disappeared it all into the ether, and so really, this is all I have the patience to write for a second time, for now).  I hope to keep more blogular activity for the 2015, in addition to saving another $20 for my Yacht.  Lofty goals, I know, but I did get a nice new (to me) laptop (borrowed the money out of my Yacht fund), and the clicky on the keys is soooo satisfying, that maybe I'll be motivated to type more.. Maybe.

Announcing the Fist Annual "Bikeworks Party While At Work So We Don't Have to Actually Work" Holiday Party!

Hey Everybody!

Firstly, lets talk about Holiday Hours.
We got the brain trust together, and have concluded that for the week of the Christmas, we will be open Monday and Tuesday, and Closed the rest of the week.  For those that prefer numbers, we will be....

Open December 22 and 23
Closed December 24 through 27

I know what you are thinking, "but you guys are closed Mondays!?"  I know, right! It's crazy, but we're going to open Monday the 22nd, just to provide great service for our loyal customers' last minute shopping needs.

Moving on, lets do some partying at work instead of working!


On Saturday the 20th, we will be open for normal hours, but we will be goofing off to the best of our abilities.
Our plans include buying some trays of Enchiladas, Posole, maybe Tamales, you know, the usual. And of course beverages of all types (you know how we roll).
And bad cycling movies! We've got ideas about Premium Rush, Quicksilver, Breaking Away, you know, the classics.
So please come by and join us. Bring food, drink, or nothing, we don't care.  Just don't expect us to be working on your bike that day, because that wouldn't be good. We will be in the shop from 10 to 6, come by as early as you would like to be seen drinking (we don't judge).

That's about it.  It's simple, we are partying some here, and we are closing up so we can go party somewhere else.

Thanks!
Sincerely,
Management


Black Friday at Galisteo Basin Preserve

As usual, we were closed on the day after Thanksgiving (AKA Black Friday, in case you didn't know).  It's kind of a gross day of consumerism that we can't get behind, even though we are capitalist pigs who shove consumer goods you don't want down your throat every day.

So, we went for a bike ride instead of working.  This year we got a small crew together and headed to the Galisteo Basin Preserve to try and sweat off some turkey.

If you haven't heard of Galisteo Basin, it's a cool little area outside of Eldorado, which is outside of Santa Fe.  There was something to do about a requirement that trails be built if houses were going to get built.  The trails got built, no houses have really popped up, and the result is a bunch of nice trails stuck out in the middle of nothing.  Here's the website....

http://galisteobasinpreserve.com/trails/index.php



They are real fun trails that are sometimes rideable in the winter when other trails are muddy.  We didn't have any fun at all..






Conveniently, Santa Fe Brewing opened a tap room just a couple miles away from these trails in a shopping center in Eldorado.  And supposedly you can ride dirt from the tap room to these trails, but we didn't have the local knowledge on that one.  We hit up the tap room post ride, but they weren't open yet, so we moved on to my Pop's house for some backyard drinking.




And that's pretty much how the day went.  Hope all of you had a nice Thanksgiving!


Closed for Thanksgiving!

Hey Everybody.
We will be closed Thursday and Friday.
We will return for normal hours on Saturday.
Happy Thanksgiving!
