Outdoor Retailer: Park N Pedal

More bike-related goodness from Outdoor Retailer.

For the past four years, Outdoor Retailer has be offered free bike valet and rentals to all attendees. Presented by Osprey and Park N Pedal.

The full valet service, operated by the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective, provides a safe and secure location for local bike commuters to leave their bikes while they attend the show.

For those who want to get away from the Salt Palace for lunch, or want to take a leisurely ride and check out the sights of Salt Lake City, Electra bicycles will have a fleet of cruisers available.

I took advantage of the cruiser rental last year to meet a couple of friends for lunch at a downtown restaurant several blocks away. It was a lot of fun riding down the streets on a big cruiser bike, taking it easy. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to do that again this year.

yes, I know. No helmet.

Events at OR Bike Share include daily raffles from Osprey Packs and a cruiser ride sponsored by Green Guru at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5.

I'm still shocked and appalled that they don't provide helmets for those free bike ride offers. I'm sure it was fun for you to ride a cruiser for once, but it looks REALLY weird for you to be on a bike without a helmet. Sorry. It's just not right.

Okay, now I've done my part.

We provide helmet and locks to all riders. Always. It's the riders choice to use them. Come on down and grab a bike...Electra will have 21 cruisers, and Dahon Bikes will be bringing in some UNO folding hikes to complement Jared Madsens Salt Lake City cargo bikes.
