Kids Bicycles and Tricycles for Christmas Gifts !

Holiday greetings from the fellas at Colonel's! As you can see, Santa was good to us and sent dozens of shiny new Christmas bikes for us to transfer from our tree to yours! Come on down and get trikes, push bikes and 12", 16", 20" and 24" childrens models for all ages. With a week (or less) to go until Christmas is here, now is the time to get the kids something they want.
If you enlarge the photo you might notice that Colonel's Bikes own personal Santa (Sir Richard Chambers) brought us all engraved crystal scotch glasses with 18 year old single malt to fill them with (on the deck of the pink tricycle). Scotch not included with tricycle purchase.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a pink trike.

There's been some talk around town of people not riding their bikes now that it's cold...shame on y'all ! If you'll put on a base layer, long fingered gloves and a head cover you'll be as warm as toast. We have Giro gloves that work in temperatures down to below freezing. We also have arm, knee and leg warmers from Louie Garneau and you don't have to go to Dallas or Austin to get them in white your hearts out Crosby and Surfer Nick. Long sleeved jerseys and bib knickers are still available also. So get dressed properly, get on your bike and smile with the right cold weather cycling gear from Colonel's Bicycles.

Gateway Park Trail Work Day

F.W.M.B.A. trail steward/builder, Matt Kocian, has scheduled a trail work session for Saturday, 12/4, 8:00am. The trail is looking great and Matt is trying to get as many people out as possible to complete the job. There is talk of food once finished over on . Show up with gloves, trail shoes/boots, some hydration, maybe a snack. The F.W.M.B.A. guys will bring some tools, or if you have a favorite of your own, bring it. I'd like to see a large turn out, let's get this place ready to ride. See you there.
