Bicycle Outfitters Grand Opening Celebration
It was a GREAT Grand Opening celebration Bicycle Outfitters had on Saturday, April 6th, at Brambleton Town Center! Thanks to all who came out to share in their fun.  What a great welcome to the neighborhood. Congrats to all the kids who competed in their Kids' bike races - Pre-K Striders to 5th grade road racers, and kudos to all the young riders/artists who decorated their bikes in the Bike Decorating Contest! One of the best highlights was seeing families come in for new bikes so that they could all ride together! Whether it was couples or families of 4 or more, what a great way to spend time together ... out on the road and trails together. Please click here to view all the bike race photos!
