Rides and Community Events
We love to ride bikes. We want you to love riding, too! Whether your goal is to commute to school or work, get fit or just have fun with the family, we are here to help! The Pedal Factory is building a community of bicyclists in Salisbury and beyond. Check out some opportunities for pedaling with us.
SUNDAY SOCIAL RIDES: Weather permitting, we host a weekly ride departing from the shop (usually - meeting point may vary occasionally). Starting at 2:30 each Sunday (later hours during the hot summer months), we take in a casual paced, all levels ride around town. The goal is fellowship and fun on the bike, and usually ends at New Sarum Brewing for those interested in post-ride beverages.
LET'S RIDE, ROWAN! Build confidence on two wheels with these free community bike classes, geared towards younger riders. We teach the balance bike method to help new riders ditch the training wheels during these sessions, which are scheduled throughout the year in partnership with the Salisbury Parks & Recreation Dept. Check our upcoming events for dates!
BIKE CAMP/BIKE FUN DAYS: Calling all young people - we host summer camps and Bike Fun Days for elementary through teenage riders. Camps are 5 full days of bike related fun - with age specific/appropriate activities and fun rides around town. Bike Fun Days are a chance to ride, play, explore and unplug for the day.
COMMUNITY RIDES AND EVENTS: Did we mention we love to ride? We're always looking for a good reason to invite the community along on a ride! Some of our themed rides include the Tweed Ride, Witches Ride, Sunday Night Lights Xmas Tours, Black History Ride, Mother's Day and Cranksgiving. Check here for updates and the latest happenings, and be sure to look at our calendar.
SALISBURY BICYCLE TOURS:: Interested in a Guided Bicycle Tour of Salisbury? Head over to Salisbury Bicycle Tours! These small group tours of the historic downtown area are a great way to support The Pedal Factory and get a little history and info about our unique and awesome town...all on a recycled, refurbished rental bike from our shop.
CUSTOM RIDES: Looking to host a ride at school or have a birthday party on bikes? We've done that, too. Contact us for options and information. If it means getting more folks on bikes, we'll make it happen.
