Loyal Cycle Co.

Chatting with the founder of the Farmington bicycle shop.
The cycling season may be coming to a close for the average rider, but for those who bike as their primary mode of transportation, setting it up for the winter will become a necessity in the next few weeks. Most every city has a shop they can turn to, and when we get a chance, we like to focus some attention on the smaller independent stores around the state.

A sampling of products sent our way to check out.
We may have just passed Black Friday, but the real insanity is coming in two days, when Cyber Monday is probably set to crash servers across the country.

In The Loop: 11/26/16. Advanced Musings Of A Drunk Billiards Player

Awesome events for you to check out from Nov. 27 through Dec. 10
Hello to all you family-avoiding, plane-catching, store-jogging, injury-healing, holiday-hating, only-35-more-days-until-this-damn-year-ends enthusiasts! The day this post goes live, I'm hopefully waking up around noon in a guest bedroom at someone's place in the Avenues, where I just spent a night shooting billiards, gaining my eyesight back from drinking gin, and finding leftovers from the vegan "trky" someone brought to an Orphan Thanksgiving.
