This coming ‘Black Friday’ we encourage everyone to #OptOutside. Rather than facing the usual shopping traffic and checkout lines, why not jump on your bike and brave the elements? We will be taking Thursday and Friday off to enjoy Thanksgiving, our families, and the great outdoors. We hope to see you out there!
The GO CR Fat Sac & Fox Enduro Ride is coming the weekend of Dec. 9-10th! This is a 3-hour enduro that can be done solo or as a 2-3 person team. Fat Bikes (3.8″ tire or wider) are required for this event, but if you don’t already have one, consider buying or renting from one of your great local bike shops. There will also be a kids ride, food trucks, local beer, bicycle industry vendors and the new Indian Creek Nature Center will be open to the public.
Hope to see you and your family out there!
Our friend, Amanda recently illustrated an expression that gets tossed around the shop regularly and she absolutely nailed it! Our new patch design pays homage to the easygoing yet grimy nature of life in the bicycle shop. Stop by or swoop one from our webstore. Peace & Grease, Y’all! Falls Creek Outfitters

To say that we were excited at the prospect of its return and even more so as a sponsor of the event would be a huge understatement. Along with many volunteers we spent Friday night before the event solidifying the course with stakes and tape, installing barriers, and clearing debris. Read more
Starting November 3rd, Goldfinch Cyclery is teaming up with LAMBA and NewBo City Market to bring you a weekly mixed terrain, all-weather, group ride. Check-in at the market starts at 5 PM every Thursday– and we’ll roll out by 5:30 PM. Make sure you have the right bike, gear, and attitude to comfortably handle some mud and cold temperatures after dark. We’ll finish our 12-15 mile loop back at the market by 7 PM. See you then!
