Vacation, beaches, and warm nights - summer is here. If you’re still unsure about what you’re going to do to occupy your time during these three glorious months we’ve got just the idea – Cruiser Bikes!

Made for the perfect easy ride that goes hand in hand with a cold beverage and a short cruise to the beach, lakeside, or park. Cruiser bikes, also known as beach cruisers are bikes that combine balloon tires, an upright seating posture, a single-speed drivetrain and straight forward steel construction with expressive styling.

Not fully sold on cruiser bikes? We’ve got 5 reasons why you need them this summer.

  1. Summer Is A Time For Cruising

Cycling enthusiasts, we know you love a good fixie, we do too, but something about the heat of summer makes us want to slow things down and take it easy. Enter, cruiser bikes. Put on your swimsuits and flip-flops and take the scenic route to the beach, it’s time for a little relaxation.  If your life is as fast-paced as we think, you’ll be thanking us later. After all, taking it easy is a self-care must, and we’re all about self-care.

  1. Stay Fit On Vacation

Cruiser bikes are a great way to keep active while you’re on vacation in a very low-key way. Bicycles are naturally a low-impact workout. Not only can you get a full-body workout but you also strengthen your muscles, increase flexibility, fight fatigue, and reduce mental blocks. Most cruisers don't have gears you can shift to help you up hills, so your best bet for blasting calories is to take a path with a little bit of incline, providing greater resistance. But for those of you who like a little help from gears, we also provide geared cruisers! So go ahead and have that extra ice cream. After all it’s hot and you’ve earned it!

  1. Beach Party? No Problem.

What’s the best thing about cruiser bikes? Plenty of space to install a bike rack! With all the hanging out we tend to do in the summer, a bike rack is the perfect addition to your summer essentials. Are you in charge of bringing the beer or snacks to the beach bonfire? No worries, there’s room for that in your easy-to-install bike rack.

  1. Wide Tires

Perfect on gravel and beach roads, wide tires come standard on cruiser bikes and we absolutely can’t imagine a summer without them. Go from side-walk to boardwalk with ease as you make your way through summer.

  1. Comfortable

Last, but certainly not least, cruiser bikes are comfy. With a wide seat and wide tires you’ll feel like you’re riding a cloud through your summer vacation. Our Beach Cruiser comes complete with an extra comfort design.

Still not sure if cruiser bikes are for you? Check out The FG Cruiser, a new breed of bicycles, where urban and beach mix. The FG Cruiser® is the most advanced cruiser in comfort, design, and performance. This bike is more practical and efficient than your typical Cruiser, yet more comfortable than a Fixie. Hitting the beach by day, or the city by night has never been so smooth.

Stay Moving to Stay Alive: 3 Reasons to Take Up Cycling

Sometimes the world seems so dangerous. We worry about accidents, cancer, and criminals potentially lurking around the corner. Actually, there's a much quieter, much closer concern that many of us overlook.

Inactivity is currently the world's fourth leading cause of death. It's a problem often confused and conflated with laziness and personal choice, but in reality the issue is geographic, systemic, and woven into the structure of modern living. (EuroNews)

That statement may sound shocking, but the numbers back it up.

  • 1.5 billion people around the world are so inactive they are risking their long-term physical health
  • 5.3 million people die each year from causes related to inactive living

Biking is an enjoyable hobby for people of all ages. Whether you're tooling around the neighborhood or participating in road races, cycling is a great way to get fresh air and exercise.  

Unfortunately, cycling can be dangerous. And it is important for us to bring awareness to the dangers of cycling to help all riders become highly alert of their surroundings when riding on the road. In 2020, nearly 700 cyclists were killed in crashes involving vehicles. Of those, a quarter were hit-and-runs, which means the driver fled the scene before police arrived.

Those are the results of the 2020 Cycling Deaths project compiled by Outside Magazine.  The data was analyzed with the assistance of information scientists at BikeMaps.org.

Coming Soon! The Great American Rail Trail
Coming Soon! The Great American Rail Trail

Ever dream of thru-biking across the interior of the United States? Thanks to a decades-long project spearheaded by the Rails-To-Trails Conservancy, that trip is one step closer to fruition. 

When completed, the Great American Rail-Trail will stretch from Washington D.C. to Washington state, encompassing nearly 3,700 miles along the way. The idea has been in the works for 50 years and more progress is being made every day. 

About 80 miles of the trail are considered complete, but the Great American Rail-Trail already connects with existing bike trails. It's built on old railroad lines, hence the name. The path is made from paved asphalt, crushed stone and other materials.
