Speed Shop Upcoming Events and News

Save the date!
Professional bicycle mechanic, Eric Greene of United Healthcare Pro Cycling Team presented by Maxxis, is coming to Patapsco Bike & Sport on Thursday, June 10. Just back from the Tour of California, Eric will conduct a bike wash clinic to teach how to properly clean and maintain your bike. He will also discuss what life is like on the road with a professional cycling team. Here's your chance to learn from a pro! Bring your questions on bike maintenance and the pro cycling circuit. Eric has been a mechanic for professional bike teams for many years.

This is a great opportunity to learn from a pro. Click here to see a recent article about Eric in the May 2010 issue of ROAD Magazine. He gives a nice shout out to Fast Freddie!

For all the Speed Shop triathletes, Patapsco Bike & Sport also carries items from Streamlines Swim and Sport. Check out this recent article or go to their website here. Feel free to pass this on to anyone you think may be interested.
In addition many new events added to this seasons schedule, Racine Multisports is offering Open Water Swim Practices at Fort Ritchie. Go here for more information.
Vicki Bate gets some great press from the local paper and gives some very nice props to the Speed Shop. Check it our here!
If you've been to the Speed Shop for a workout, you have probably been given the "recovery" speech. Here is an interesting article on how pro cyclists are incorporating a gluten free diet to aid in not just recovery but better overall health and fitness.

A shout to Matt Davis of NCVC for his recent license upgrade from Category 5 to Category 4 in road racing. A well deserved upgrade after getting on the top step of the podium in his last two races as at Cat. 5. Way to go Matt!

Lots of great ride and race reports have been coming in this spring. Keep up the great work everyone and don't forget to check us out for inclement weather classes and special events.
