Road Ride Gear To Remember

Now that the hot Summer days are upon us and road rides like the MS 150 and RAGBRAI are right around the corner, it's time to think about a few last minute things you may be forgetting. So to help you out, we’ve put together a list of the Top 5 things you’ll need to make your next road bike trip more enjoyable.

#5 Tune-Up $49.99-$99.99

It’s always good to start fresh on a long ride. This means resting your body as well as getting your bike looked at to make sure everything is running smoothly. We guarantee a 72 hour turnaround time to get you back on the road as soon as possible.

#4 Flat Kit $3.99-$27.99

A solid flat kit that includes a spare tube, tire levers, pump (Co2 saves weight), and multi-tool will give you the piece of mind of knowing you won’t be stuck out in the middle of nowhere (vultures can be ruthless).

#3 Clothing/Gear

With Nebraska and Iowa weather the way it is, you should know that a variety of conditions need to be accounted for. The right gear can make all the difference between a fun ride and a disaster. BRAN riders know first hand that 60 miles of riding in the pouring rain is no fun, so rain gear is something you should strongly consider. Other things to think about would be…
· Extra Gloves
· Sunglasses
· Short-Sleeve Jerseys
· Sun Screen

#2 Ride Nutrition $1.39-$42.99

Using the proper nutritional supplements during a your ride will help to keep you hydrated, repair muscle damage, and give you the energy you need to finish your ride strong. We currently stock the following lines…
