As spring spreads like spilled gravy over the land, hibernating bicycles slowly awaken and emerge from the undergrowth, shy and stiff with sleep. Help your own bicycle bosom buddy rise and shine with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of bikes, equipment, accessories, and service at County Cycles in Roseville.
County Cycles shelters an array of accessories, spare parts, and repair equipment to keep pedal-powered rides in smooth and stylish shape. Outfit shaky frames with a sturdy pair of Continental Sport Kevlar-belted tires ($24.95 each) or a blinking, battery-operated Super Flash taillight to increase conspicuousness during the demi-darkness of twilight, with LED lights visible from up to a mile away ($24.95). Regular gear turners can protect their legs with padded cycling shorts (starting at $44.95) and crash proof their craniums with the easily adjusted Bell Citi helmet ($49.99). Digital bike accessories coast in from the future, such as the Sigma 1009, a small, 10-function computer that wirelessly tracks average speed, records trip time, echolocates nearby juice bars, and charts other helpful variables ($34.99). Groupon customers can also use their credit toward the purchase of any regular price or sale bike in stock.
With experience and knowledge acquired through years of riding, the County Cycles staff provides illuminating assistance to customers searching through the panoply of parts. Dual-wheeled knights can also join in weekly group rides organized by the shop's club, in which flocks of cyclists enjoy the fresh air and ride circles around members of the local penny-farthing society.
For more than 30 years, County Cycles has been outfitting riders of all ages with bikes of all types. It provides customers with a wide range of gear and cycling accessories from parts and helmets to road and mountain bikes from brands such as Trek, Bianchi, and Felt. Its technicians are trained to work with bikes of all major brands, and can lubricate cables, adjust seats, and fix busted tires so that bikes can ride on their own instead of being pulled by horses.
