As spring approaches, a cyclist’s mind begins to brood. Near are warm days and long rides, long gone are the face masks and winter gear to get through your commute. Race season is around the corner, and early morning training rides become essential, making those extra holiday pounds get more noticeable. Many road riders must ask themselves the all encompassing question: to race or not to race?

We  understand the many issues that may weigh into your decision to participate in road racing. Joining any sport can be intimidating, not to mention expensive. But the joys of competition and comradery are immeasurable, and Nashville’s passionate race community are a welcoming bunch. Now, about those bikes…

Road race bikes are different from other road bikes, featuring superior engineering and materials specific to a racer’s needs. At Halcyon, we are happy to help you find the right race bike for you. We carry a select number of race ready bikes, used of course, helping you save some hard earned money.

Or, maybe you are a seasoned racer, and are looking to upgrade your bike this season. If you would like to sell your old race bike on consignment, Halcyon Bike would love to help you out. Drop by the shop, bring your bike, and we will set you up.

Happy riding!

we want to thank everyone who came out this past saturday and celebrated our grand opening. it was a huge success and we are still recovering. approximately 50 riders participated in the crankmas alley cat race, collecting enough cans to fill a truck bed! bridget from &3 catering served some fine grub, and diarama, weiners, and the mattoid entertained us (and our neighbors, who were kind enough to not call the cops) all evening long.

there are over 500 photos from the event, so as soon as they are edited down, we will do a massive upload for your viewing pleasure.
