So many of you know that part of what makes Road Worx unique was the irreplaceable presence of Silo. It comes with devastating sadness that Silo is no longer with us. He lost his battle with a brain tumor that he was diagnosed with this January. Most of you know his story. For those that don't, grab some tissues. I rescued Silo from a shelter just over 3 years ago. At the time the best guess of his age was 9. I wasn't looking for a dog per se. I was visitng my step mother who lives out east. We thought it would be a good way to spend the afternoon by taking a drive and visiting the shelter. When I saw Silo (his name was Shadow then), it was an instant bond for me. He played it cool on the other hand. In time we formed a special bond. He went with me every where. I think in the time that i've had him weve been apart for three weeks total. How many times have you guys kindly had to step over him to get out the back door? It meant so much to me that my customers would stop by just to give Silo a pet and a hug. I want to thank everyone who have been so kind and loving to Silo. If you have a pet go and give them a big hug and kiss for me. If not, please consider rescuing a dog or cat from one of the too many area shelters.
Good bye my friend. Thank you for everything.
From May 12-20 Will and his good pal Eli followed the Giro while getting in some sublime riding and exquisite cusine. Click here to see all the pictures and story.
Here at Road Worx, we've been busy planning one of our biggest events
of the season -- a two-day (Friday, May 1 and Saturday, May 2) road trip to Serotta for a factory tour,
bike demo, and Serotta Fit Lab introduction. We're pretty sure that you'll be interested
in this trip regardless of how well you know the Serotta brand. If you
are not yet familiar with Serotta's pioneering fit system, we're sure
you'll love touring the factory and learning about how their system can
catapult your biking experience to the next level. And if you're
already a fan, you'll undoubtedly enjoy the riding, some fresh air, and
some good company & food.
The trip is open to all levels of riders. On Friday, we'll all meet up at the Serotta factory in Saratoga Springs by 10am. You are free to go up on your own or leave from Road Worx. The folks at Serotta will give us a tour of the factory and show us how carbon fiber, titanium, and steel are bonded, welded, machined, and finished to create the ultimate riding bicycles we know and love. We'll spend the afternoon test riding Serotta bikes to see first hand the end result of 35 years of experience producing custom-made bicycles.
Saturday starts with a ride in the beautiful Saratoga Springs area. This 60 mile ride will be for every level of cyclist. You can expect to enjoy challenging climbs, fun descents and breathtaking views. Word is that Ben Serotta may even join in on the fun! The day will end with a scrumptious barbecue, hosted by our friend Dave Powers, Serotta's chief liaison. (Sounds fancy, doesn't it? -- Promises to be tasty!)

The Tour of Missouri was vandalized by hooligans. This is clearly the work of Lars Wackernagel fans.
Good job boys!!
