While heading back down from Skalkaho/Rye Rd., these chaps wanted us to admire their backsides as they…slooooooowly…walked off to the side of the road. Very cool indeed and fortunate to have seem these wonderful animals…which I would have missed…..IF I WAS INSIDE. Put your butt on a saddle and explore because nature won’t come to you. £
Hello Cycling Friends! With Spring right around the corner, we are ready and chomping at the bit to get out and turn some pedals in a little warmer climate and wearing fewer layers…BUT…that’s not quite here yet so keep those thoughts on the back burner. We, here at the ‘Barn know that some folks like to train indoors during the cold, dark days and nights of Winter but there is something to be said for getting out and braving the cold and snow to pedal around a bit. There’s something refreshing about breathing in cold winter air….(Unless you enjoy the stale, sweaty air in the pain cave) while exploring some new roads and trails. If you haven’t tried riding a fat-tired bike, maybe it’s time you do….and that’s where we come in. We’ve still got fat bikes in stock and would like to get them acquainted with new owners. We have Trek Farleys and Salsa Mukluks that are ready to get out and find new homes. We are offering 20% off these bikes for in-stock purchase and pick up only, no shipping.
And if you are already in that Spring mode and looking for a hard tail or full suspension bike, we have a select few Trek Roscoes and Remedys from last season that we need to move as well. These are also 20% off, in-stock and in-store purchases only, no shipping or internet sales.
Come by and check them out, say “Hello” and warm your feet by the fire.
The Red Barn Crew

Oh wait…there’s more….can koozies in colors that would make a bag of Skittles blush. And how could you not want to start your day off sipping your favorite morning beverage in anything BUT a RBB logo mug in the ever fashionable black!

Check them out while they’re still here to BE checked out!
Did you know we were a Trek dealer, well this past summer it became official and we partnered up with the brand who arguably make the best bikes in the industry. This instantly gave us access to a very wide array of all types of awesome bike; their kids bikes rip and have been very popular, fat and plus sized bikes continue to grow in popularity, their suspension bikes ride smooth and engineered to be plush and efficient. If you already haven’t we recommend that you stop on in for a look, even try one out. We’re stocked for spring.

Just got a call from one of our regular customers who reported that Coyote Coulee is fully open and rideable. There are some small patches of snow on the upper trail, but easy enough to ride through. Also, he said there are 3 trees down but nothing you couldn’t hop over….or bring a saw and cut a path??!!
Looks like spring has sprung so get out there and turn some pedals!
Thanks for the call, Skip. Enjoy your ride!
