Cannondale Bikes

Cannondale bikes logo

 Widely regarded as the bike industry's leading innovator with  game-changing technologies, Cannondale and its handcrafted bicycles  continue to be recognized by organizations from both inside and outside the industry.

Many of the ideas that keep Cannondale products on the cutting edge  come from the sponsored athletes on the company's professional racing  teams. The feedback provided by the company's riders, combined with  Cannondale's best-in-class production processes, fuel a near constant  stream of both new innovations and improvements to existing products.

With a laser focus on a rider-first mentality, we push our employees,  our dealers and the bike industry. These refinements aren't limited to  the company's competitive road racing and mountain bikes, however; the  insights gained through racing, coupled with Cannondale's quest for  constant improvement, have also benefited the company's wide array of  lightweight recreational bikes as well as its lines of state-of-the-art  cycling apparel and parts & accessories.

Vet Veggies

We’d like to formally introduce you to Jerry Martin, owner of Vet Veggies and our first Veteran freight farmer. Like all of our farmers, he came to us with a big idea for what he wanted to do with his farm. He has a powerful story to share, and this is only the beginning.Jerry served as a helicopter pilot in the United States Army in the 1970’s, and comes from a long standing history of Veterans. His daughter, Jackie, also served in the US Air Force and is a driving force for his work and passion. Since returning from service, Jerry has been actively searching for ways to give back to the veteran community and to be of service to those in need of help.

Growlin' Gran Fondo Gravel Ride℠

Details and Course:

  • What to expect!

Rogers Roubaix offers up some of the rowdy roads in the Rogers area. These can be minimum maintenance roads or just some sketchy B- roads. Don’t let this intimidate you if it’s something you don’t typically ride. Most of these roads lead you to something totally awesome, like old stuff that is super cool to take pictures with you and your buddies. The gravel promoters aren’t completely evil, they just have mechanics who planned the routes! So, the best thing to know is that these roads are coming, conditions probably might be tough, but you’ll be fine, promise. You might have to suffer through it a bit, but it will be worth it. Even if you are physically prepared, you may face a mental battle slogging through a tough section of the course. Even if it doesn’t lead you somewhere cool, at least it’s not the Land run 100!

Mileage is measured in Kilometers
