Harvest Moon Happenings October 6, 2009

As the days grow shorter and the cool weather takes hold, its time to pause and enjoy these last best days of the fair cycling weather. If you don't already have plans to get on the bike this weekend, here are a few reasons to get yourself into high gear:


The Fuji Feathers are in! The feather is a single-speed-fixie with classic Fuji styling. Come check out the Feather Saturday night at the Roller Races at Waste Not Want Not. We will be donating one Feather ($650 value) to raffle off in support of the Providence Biycle Coalition .

This coming weekend please don't miss all the great bike racing right here in Providence. That's right, Cyclocross is back at Roger Williams Park with "Divine Providence" - the third installment of the New England Verge Series. Come cheer on your favorite pros as well as weekend warriors all day Saturday and Sunday. While you're there try 2010 bicycles at the Interbike Outdoor Dirt Demo.  This is a one of a kind opportunity to test ride bikes on the trails and roads of Roger Williams Park. There's nothing else like this on the East Coast. Believe me, you don't want to miss it.

As if you needed another reason to come out, in addition to their sign up Kiosk at RW Park the Providence Bicycle Coalition is hosting several events over the weekend. Friday night come out for the outdoor movies. This is a joint fundraising venture between the PBC and Recycle-a-Bike  and will feature a new release, Veer, and the classic Night of the Living Dead. Saturday night join us for the roller races and try your luck against your friends or most bitter rivals. You never know, you might walk away with a Fuji Feather!

The PBC needs VOLUNTEERS!! PLEASE sign up to help out . Admission to most events is FREE to those who support us with your time and energy.

Last but not least, Legend would like to thank all of our customers for a great year. With all of the strange weather and gloomy talk of the "economy", we will be ending the fair weather season looking good for 2010. Keep in mind that starting in Mid-October, Legend will be going back to its usual hours. That means, starting October 13th, we will no longer be open on Tuesdays until the Spring. So when you want to mount those studded tires, come see us Wednesday through Sunday starting next week. We appreciate your business and we are proud to be your neighborhood bike shop.
