COVID-19 Update: Due to current CDC guidelines to cease any non-essential physical contact, Savvy Bike will not be accepting any additional bike fit bookings until May 4th. I will update, as needed, as the pandemic progresses. My priority is the health and well-being of my clients, my family, and our society. I appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future.

Past clients and folks who are on my future calendar, I’m happy to schedule a FREE video consult to discuss urgent concerns. Email me to schedule an appointment.

Ladies! It’s time to earn/learn your independence on the bike! Too many women feel uncomfortable riding on their own or leading rides because they feel they don’t know how to take care of their bike if something goes wrong. In this 2-hour workshop, you’ll learn how to change a flat, how to make minor adjustments (derailleurs and brakes), and how to clean your bike. We’ll have time for questions, too!

Bring your bicycle, on-bike tools, floor pump, and a blanket, sheet, or tarp to cover the floor under you and your bike.

Preregistration online is $10. Registration at the event is $20.

Eventbrite - How to Ride the Death Ride Without Really Dying

Curious about gravel grinding? Join us for Bike Skills 104: Intro to Gravel Riding. We’ll cover the fundamentals of riding off the beaten path and adventure planning. This 8-hour clinic includes a two-hour pre-meeting on Thursday, January 31st to help you prepare for the weekend, covering the gear and the tools needed for fun and safe riding (bike and tire selection, clothing, etc). On Sunday, we focus on the fundamental skills of riding on dirt and mixed terrain, riding over obstacles, braking, cornering, and general bike handling. After lunch (included) we’ll finish the day with a group ride on our beautiful trails, giving you the opportunity to practice and receive feedback on the skills we learned in the morning.

Believe it or not, some folks have never had a proper bike fit. They hop on and go. Maybe they’ve been riding for a few months, maybe for decades, but they’ve never had the experience of customizing their bike to their body, riding style, and goals.

Now, I know my clients have all been fit, but do you realize that bike fit isn’t typically “one and done?” There are three reasons why you should re-visit your bike fit. Which of these applies to you?

It’s NEW BIKE Day!
You’ve got a NEW BODY!
You’ve got some NEW GOALS!

You should get a new fit each time you get a new bike, even if it’s a similar bike. As much as we’d like to be able to transfer your fit from bike to bike, the difference in geometry (or style of bike) means that you should re-visit your bike fit.

Has your body changed? Has your weight increased or decreased? Have you gained or lost flexibility or strength? Are you recovering from an injury? These are all reasons to be re-fit on your bike. Although you may hope to adapt to these changes, you really should fit your bike for the body you have now.

Have you been riding endurance events but now want to try criterium racing? Would you like to race triathlon on your road bike that was fit for centuries? Been racing road but now want to ride double century rides? If your riding goals have changed, we can fit you in the most appropriate position for your new events.

The long and short of it is that there’s no “one and done” in bike fit. If your body, your bike, or your goals have changed, it’s time to re-visit your bike fit, too!

Thanks to Pactimo for keeping our kit game solid. We ride long miles. We ride hard miles. We ride day after day after day. Our kit is designed to meet the needs of the most discerning cyclists.

We’ve selected the Summit Raptor bibs because they stand the test of long, hard rides in all temperatures and humidities. Add either the Ascent Aero jersey (Euro-fit) or the Century LX jersey (relaxed fit) and you’ve got a kit that will keep you looking and (most importantly) feeling GREAT all day long, no matter what type of riding you do.
