Sun & Ski Sports 'Bike U' Set for January

Published December 10, 2008

HOUSTON, TX (BRAIN)—Sun & Ski Sports will kick off cyclists’ training for the 25th anniversary MS 150 charity bike ride with its annual “Bike University” Open House Friday, January 23, 5–10 p.m. and Saturday, January 24, noon-6 p.m. at Sun & Ski Sports in Houston, Texas.

The free event, open to the public, will feature customized bike fit sessions, cycling courses, clinics and hands-on demonstrations to enhance cyclists’ safety and overall bike riding experience.

“Whether you’re a longtime cyclist or brand new to the sport, Bike U provides the latest product information and safety, nutrition and maintenance clinics that help keep everyone safe on the road,” said Dale Mikulan, Sun & Ski Sports merchandise manager-bikes, whose stores sell more bicycles in Houston than any other bike shop in the city.

“Bike University” will feature close to thirty 30-minute presentations led by cycling, fitness and nutrition experts on road safety, maintenance, bike fit analysis, training, nutrition and women’s specific cycling clinics. The program will offer the CRM body scanning laser fit and an “on your bike” fit evaluation at the store’s customized fit station. Sun & Ski Sports’ permanent fit station customizes the bike’s seat height, cockpit length and knee-to-pedal relationship to allow for the customer’s ultimate comfort and power on his or her bike, enabling them to ride further and faster while expending less energy.

There will be cycling-oriented door prize give-aways every two hours.

Instructors include representatives from such premier manufacturers as Marin Bicycles (Houston exclusive of Sun & Ski Sports), Masi Bicycles, Look, Scott Bicycles and Shimano; with cycling apparel by Pearl Izumi, Sugoi, She Beast, Zoots, Canari Cyclewear and Giradono; and accessories by Yakima, Mavic, Polar, Continental Tires, Serfas, Giro, Blackburn and Rav X.
