How Yoga Can Improve Your Cycling Performance
February 2nd 2018, at SHIMANO BIKE NYC
You might be able to ride fast or have the endurance of a pro, but are you flexible? Do you have a hard time focusing while you ride? Many might not know this, but yoga and cycling actually go hand-in-hand with one another and practicing yoga poses on a regular basis can do wonders to improve your flexibility, balance, and focus.
Event Recap and Q&A Session with Nelson Vails
January 23rd 2018, at SHIMANO BIKE NYC
Back in August 2017, we had the pleasure of hosting Olympic Winner and Professional Track Cyclist Nelson Vails for an interactive workshop and Q&A here at SHIMANO BIKE NYC. It was great to hear from him first-hand about his personal history as a professional cyclist along with his lifelong commitment to The Shimano Family and its contributions to the cycling community in New York City.
Nelson was our secret guest for the weekly evening ride with Rapha on the day before his workshop and after a ride around the city, we had a great time chatting over some beer and snacks. And on the next day, we welcomed 60 attendees to his workshop.
Cycling and Coffee: A Perfect Match
January 10th 2018, at SHIMANO BIKE NYC
At either end of the bridge throughout all five boroughs, you’ll find a coffee shop. It’s no coincidence that coffee shops are so prevalent in New York City as they provide a quick stop for cyclists to enjoy an energy boost as they commute to work and school or as they go for a cruise on a sunny New York day. At our recent Shimano’s official pop-up store, SHIMANO BIKE NYC, we partnered with Regalia Company, providers of specialty roasted coffee beans for the store. We found this partnership to be a match made in heaven and cyclists around the city enjoyed stopping in the look at our bikes but also to pick up a good cup of joe.
