Several friends of the shop have expressed their availability to ride on week days, so we will be starting weekday morning training beginner rides as soon as it warms up. We will leave the shop between 8:00-10:00 for an hour ride to GBP and back. Send us a message at email@example.com to let us know what works best. Looking forward to riding with you all!
We are happy to announce we will be hosting MS150 Training Rides for absolute beginners or those who have been out of commission for some time and would like to get back in shape for longer and faster road rides. To make rides very safe for everyone, we will be riding of long flat paved stretches of George Bush Park for initial conditioning. We are happy to organize rides on any days of the week, most definitely on weekends, and would love adding a weekday ride for those with flexible schedules. Before we make a decision on time of the rides, please send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know the most convenient times for you, and we'll choose something that works well for everyone.
We can proudly say that we have never driven a car to our public library, and have only been using our bikes to get there and back! Today we didn't have to carry many heavy books so our backpacks and bags were sufficient. On days when we have many books to carry, we might take a trailer or a bike with a rear rack and and rack bags. Next time you go to a public library in Cinco Ranch, consider riding your bike there instead, there are many trails that lead there, and the Library has a bike rack.
This weekend we will host two rides - a family library ride with kids (all ages, 3 miles total) and a longer ride (16-18 miles) to Scate Park in George Bush Park (older children, adults). Join the ride that fits you best or do both :) !
Check out this video of our New Year Family Ride! It has been our pleasure to meet you all and to share our passion for cycling and our love for this community! Happy and Safe Riding, and looking forward to riding with you in 2018!
This coming Saturday, Dec 16, we will celebrate our Grand Opening with a Ride to George Bush Park for a Bike Houston Road Safety Awareness Event! Click Bike Houston Event for more! We will leave the Shop at 8:45am, ride to George Bush Park and participate in testing the visibility of cyclists from the point of view of truck drivers! Cemex is providing two trucks for this experiment, and the first 150 participants will get a LED light and water bottles as gifts! Looking forward to seeing you all at the shop and at the ride!
How do you usually get to your public library? We at Cool Cat Cycles do it on bikes! Come this Saturday, Dec 9 at 12pm to our shop, we will show you how to safely and easily get to Cinco Ranch Library on a bike. You will excercise while getting your intellectual needs met - how awesome! We'll get there on trails, check out fun books, let the kids rest, and ride back to the shop to have hot chocolate.
Sunday Streets Campaign started in Houston 4 years ago, and since then every month on Sunday one of the neighborhoods closes down its major street for vehicular traffic and invites all other types of wheels - bikes, roller blades, skateboards, and walkers to walk the road. On Dec 3, Sunday Streets came to Eldridge Pkwy, and Cool Cat Cycles just had to visit! We were represented by the youngest member of our team who enjoyed riding on temporary bike lane and meeting Santa!
Being the only official Bianchi dealer in Katy, West Houston, and beyond, we are super proud to have this beautiful original Bianchi folding bike from 1960s! The bike was found, purchased, and restored by our Bike Technician Mike who has a passion for custom builds and bike estoration. Come to our shop to check this Bianchi out and see the rest of Bianchi bikes on our floor.
Things are moving fast - we have our Service Station equipped and stocked up! In a few days we'll have our last shipment with spares and tools, and by weekend we will be ready to service most of the bikes brought to the shop. Our full-time Service Technician Mike will be able to do a same day service on most small and basic repairs. We are not officially open yet, but if you are nearby with a bike that needs service - stop by, we might be able to take care of you!
Our sign has been installed!
So now, when you are riding, running, walking, or, in the worst case scenario, driving :-) along Peek Rd near Westheimer intersection, you will see a white cat riding a bike on the rooftop of Villagio Town Center. Even though we are not open yet, make sure to stop by and say hi, we are in the shop every day getting things ready to bring some awesome bikes, gear, and attitude to Cinco Ranch!
We are looking forward to seeing you at our Soft Opening! Come back to check date and time!
The work on our interior is almost completed, and while we are focusing on finishing touches, we are also busy stocking the shop with our best commuter and sportif gear. We have started stocking the Service Station, so our Technician is fully equipped to service any bike brought to the shop. The Opening Date is near, stay tuned for more updates!
