Here at Thick Bikes we like to ride, a lot and all kinds of bikes in all kinds of fashions. The problem is this winter has been a brutal one, specifically for those of us that like to log in those long winter days in the saddle in order to keep up with the fast guys come spring time. Sure some of us have been getting out on the fat bikes and plowing through the snow and ice, day and night making the most of the conditions. Don’t get me wrong I like winter, specifically a winter where there is a lot of snow and we have certainly gotten that. Winter for bike riders and racers a like is good time to do something different, try out some new things. Locally we have been blessed with the opening of the Wheelmill, an indoor bike park that has a little for everyone and here at the shop have been making it a weekly routine to stop by for some riding. For me part of the fun of riding and racing is taking road trips, getting out and exploring new places and last month we packed up the van headed to Rays Mtb Park in Cleveland, OH. I had never been there before and was overwhelmed with the sheer size of the place. I am also a total newb at riding BMX and was excited to see what I could do as well as being completely intimidated. Lets just say Rays’ is rad, like super rad, especially when you, some co-workers and friends pretty much have the whole place to yourself (it helps to go on a week day in the middle of the day).

Nothing helps time pass on a grey winter day like riding and laughing with your friends, and we will be heading back up to Ray’s this Monday the 24th to get in some more good times.
You can bring whatever you wan to ride, after years of mastering the control of a two wheeled machine Chris is trying to conquer the Uni by riding it on things most people wouldn’t feel comfortable walking across.
Adam brought along his CX bike to start tuning up his handling skills, others brought mountain bikes, dirt jumpers, whatever floats your boat or makes you smile. Winters here in the Burgh are what you make of them, sure you could plop down at the O.T.B., sip some beers, eat a burger or two and hope the warm weather shows up soon or you could hit up Ray’s or the Wheelmill before your get to the O.T.B. and work up an appetite first. We’ll be at Ray’s door Monday at noon, can’t wait to see you there.
