Great turn out for the VIP Spin Class at Equinox. First ride I’ve done with a few of the teammates where I finished at the same time. J Hoping this rain clears off so that we are all out on the road this weekend. We will try to set up one more class at Equinox before the end of the season

MS150 Inspection Stickers
All riders have to need a inspection sticker on their bike in order to receive free service during the MS150. We suggest you bring you bikes in ASAP before the rush starts! NEW THIS YEAR: This year, the MS Society is requiring as part of the bike inspection that the bike shops look over your shoes and cleats as part of the process, so please bring your shoes.
This will be the only time during the season that you will get a discount on service so take advantage of the savings!!
If you don't need a tune-up please bring your bike by starting February 17th to get your bike inspected.
We will offer a discount on tune-ups February 13 - 28th
Standard tune-up $75 for $55 $20 off
Urban Works $100 now $80 $20 off.
We’d like to thank all of our sponsors for their continued support for the UBG Team. You help make our team extra special!!!
