Long Beach Island Summer 2018 Has Come and Gone

« Back to Blog

So it’s mid-September and we said we were going to post on the blog about 2x a month. Well… we think we completed two posts, total. Oops! The summer craziness got the best of us.

We want to thank all of our loyal customers that continue to support the shop year after year. It is such a great feeling when the warm weather brings back so many familiar faces. Your support helps us to continue to grow and provide great service on the island we call home. Read about some of our summer highlights below:

LBI Cycling Facebook Group

The idea was born out of the clear need for a centralized location where riders can share their upcoming rides and hopefully have others join! With this group we also decided to set up some group rides from the shop on Wednesdays and Sundays. The turnout each week was great and we are excited to continue this tradition next year. Don’t worry, as long as the weather is nice, we will continue to have rides out of the shop. Definitely join the Facebook Group to get notifications as to when/where they will be.

Wine & Wrenching After Hours

Another addition was we also hosted two Wine & Wrenching After Hours in July and August. These events were a fun twist on a fix-a-flat clinic. Each event attendees were able to learn how to fix a flat and learn some tips and tricks from the best at Shore Brake Cyclery. These evenings also provided customers a relaxed atmosphere with some food and beverages to have their questions answered all things related to bikes and cycling in general. We plan on continuing this type of event in 2019 as well so keep your eyes open and join us, even if its just to hang out.

Our next Wine & Wrenching will be on December 1 for Bike Shop Day! Be sure to Like our Facebook page and our Instagram account for updates!

Chowderfest Weekend – Less than 2 Weeks Away

Shore Brake Cyclery at ChowderfestChowderfest Weekend is just around the corner. On September 29, Shore Brake Cyclery will be at the Merchant Mart on Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm. We will have some great deals on apparel, accessories and select bikes so stop and say hi. Don’t worry, the shop will be open too with the same deals.

What’s to Come

We have a lot up our sleeves for this off season and we are pretty excited about it, so stay tuned.
