On Friday, September 11th, Mellow Johnny's is teaming up with the great folks at Blackburn to host an exclusive viewing of "Comes with Baggage." It's a fun, short film about the history of bicycle travel in the Americas. It features historic and modern day footage as well as interviews with bike pioneers, historians and riders. According to the filmmakers, this film will "make you want to sell your possessions, quit your job and escape on a bike." We've had a sneak peak and can say it's absolutely true.
Here's how the evening works. We'll have a meet & greet starting at 6pm. Enjoy some refreshments and talk about your past, current and next bike adventures. Then, we'll screen the film at 7pm in Juan Pelota Cafe. So, come ready to meet new people and let's share in an evening of celebrating bike culture and exploration.
La Vuelta a España begins this Saturday and runs through September 13th. This Grand Tour is slated to be quite exciting, featuring many of the same riders who raced this year's Tour de France. We will be streaming all 21 stages here at Juan Pelota Cafe and welcome you and friends to watch and cheer on your favorite riders.more
OK, it just got really hot. Heat brings a whole new challenge to riding, where your simple goal of training can turn into damaging nightmare if you aren't properly nourished and hydrated. Eddie Martinez, our Floor Manager and Bike Buyer, gives us his educated take on the subject.
Hydration: Before, during, and after.
First, we must stress that everyone is different, and your fluid and nutrition requirements may be much different than your mates. So, you need to pay attention to what works for you.
In the hot months, keep your bottle of water with you on or off the bike. Water is never bad. Start sipping water 4 hours before your ride, and continue at that sipping pace through the day. Don't chug it all at once. Let your body absorb it completely over time. In hot weather, blood is headed away from the gut toward the skin and muscles in order to keep you cool. With less blood flow in the digestive system, the body can't process water fast enough and you end up just peeing it out.
During my rides, I drink about 16 ounces per hour. This...more

Does your lower back hurt after a long ride? Do your hands feel like they’re falling asleep mid-ride? Do your hips or hamstrings feel tight or is there discomfort in your feet? All of these issues likely point to an improper fit on your bike. Aside from the general discomfort you may feel while riding, there are real consequences to not being set up right: an overall decrease in performance, unnecessary wear and tear on your bike and gear, and, in many instances, the potential for injury.
Here at Mellow Johnny’s, we want to be make sure that you love riding your bike - not only because you have the best bike for your riding style, but also because you have the best fit possible. To that end, we offer two services that will help you dial in your position and ensure that you have the best possible fit for the riding you do.
Standard Fit: When you buy a bike from Mellow Johnny’s, we provide the standard fit at no additional cost. However, we also make this fitting session available to any rider who is looking to achieve the optimal riding position. In...more
