Bike the Bay 2016

Another Bike the Bay is in the bag! Over 3,000 riders headed out on the 25 mile ride from the Embarcadero over the Coronado Bridge, down the Silver Strand and back up the Bayshore Bike Way. Tons of fun was had by all.

Here’s a few pics – have some to share? Send them over to us at info@BicycleWarehouse.com or post to our Facebook.

Liv Beyond: Shannon Galpin and the Afghanistan Women’s Cycling Team

For the past two years Liv has worked with Shannon Galpin, a 2013 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year and her Mountain2Mountain non-profit organization to support the Afghan National Women’s Cycling Team. So far Liv has supplied more than 50 race bikes, gear and apparel to support the brave young women in Afghanistan as they pursue their dreams to ride and discover new possibilities for themselves and fellow Afghan women.

Liv is also a presenting sponsor of “Afghan Cycles,” a film currently in production that will tell the story of the Afghan Women’s Cycling Team.

EarthFair 2015

Last Sunday, April 19th EarthFair 2015 took over Balboa Park with tons of music, food and environmentally friendly exhibitors. It was a blast! Over 60,000 people came out to enjoy the day. With so much to do it was impossible to see it all, but we gave it a shot.

Bicycle Warehouse was there with a selection of eBicycles showing that even in hilly San Diego bicycles can be a practical replacement for many car trips (and way more fun). Here are a few photos of the event.
