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....

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!
