Imagine all your favorite spots in one shop. Imagine a place where your children can be entertained while you entertain the idea of a new bike or new clip-in shoes or try on some fabulous new cycling shorts all while sipping on a latte in over-sized dressing rooms. This place does exist! I have seen the promise Outspokin land and it was a Giant cycling heaven.
I was a tiny tri-athlete in a Giant world.
Outspokin of Clearwater has a new location on South Dale Mabry. Though most cycling shops cater to male clients, Outspokin certainly appeals to many cycling moms on the run like me.
The warm, welcoming colors and gorgeous layout will please all cyclists from novice to semi-pro.
Set a course for your next ride with the help of Outspokin’s Compu Trainer Rooom. Mount your bike and ride through any road course to prepare and train for your next race. Invite your friends to train with a group and add a new spin to your usual Moms Night Out. Iron Girl Clermont, here we come!
With high tech customized calibrations, riders are guaranteed for a bike best suited for each individual with the aid of Outspokin’s amazing Fit Room.
Test bike seats are also available, another aspect that sets an Outspokin experience apart from other bike shops. Since I’ve had some issues with my bike from the beginning, I will be scheduling a fitting after viewing this cycling Mecca.
Before our tour of Outspokin’s cycling nirvana, we took a group bike ride along Bayshore Boulevard to experience the group rides soon to be offered at this location. Although I am still very nervous to ride in the road, our fearless leaders Denise and Kelbie led us safely along Bayshore into David Island. Even with a bridge, it was a gorgeous not-so-scary 15 mile ride.
Experience this Giant cycling paradise and group rides at Outspokin’s Grand Opening March 15 – March 23 with special events, deomonstrations and prizes this Saturday, March 16 and Sunday, March 17. Follow Outspokin on Twitter and for updates, specials, group rides and workshop events.
