There's always something happening here at The Path Bike Shop. Rides, races, sales, specials, demo days...you name it. Keep checking back, so you won't miss a thing.


For all rides, please come prepared and with the following items: Helmet, tools and spare tubes, appropriate riding attire, water, and light (seasonal, when needed). Ride locations change every week, so check back each week for the current ride location.

***All rides are WEATHER PERMITTING***  Be sure to check back for any last minute ride changes or cancellations due to weather conditions.

*If you are interested in taking out one of our demo bikes, be sure to make all rental arrangements AT LEAST the DAY BEFORE a ride, since the shop may not be open before the ride, and to guarantee you will get the bike you want!


THE PATH SATURDAY ADVANCED MTB RIDE

Saturday shop rides are advanced MTB rides that include long distances, strenuous climbs, and technical descents. Plan to be out on the trails for a good 2-3 hours. Locations change each week, ranging from local regional parks to the Santa Ana Mountains and beyond.

We'll be out at Luge N Brews at Cook's Corner with a demo fleet, and there will be group rides departing from there!


THE PATH SUNDAY RIDE

The Sunday shop rides are mostly MTB but sometimes on road. Usually at a more relaxed pace, best suited for early intermediate level riders. Always a no-drop ride, no one will be left behind.

NO RIDE this week, it's Easter Sunday!

If you (or someone you know) are looking to hone your skills, brush up on modern mountain bike technology or review MTB fundamentals, you won't want to miss The Path Bike Shop's new clinic and ride series.

DATES: March 12, March 26, April 9 from 5:45PM - 7:15PM

All clinics held at The Path Bike Shop Tustin - 215 W 1st Street, Tustin CA

If you (or someone you know) are looking to learn new or hone existing skills, brush up on modern mountain bike technology or review MTB fundamentals, you won't want to miss the first installment of our new clinic and ride series.

The Path to Modern MTB Clinic and Ride Series will guide you through everything you need to know to confidently purchase or upgrade, set up, dial in, maintain and ride your mountain bike via three progressive in-store clinics and bi-weekly rides starting in April.

The clinic series will cover everything from bike anatomy and types of modern mountain bikes to what to wear and carry when you ride, how to clean and maintain your bike, deal with a flat tire and other trailside fixes and much more.

This ground-up series is perfect for anyone who has never ridden a mountain bike and wants to start, riders who have taken a long break and want a friendly and supportive re-entry, and experienced riders looking to upgrade their bike and learn the ins and outs of new gear and technologies or just work on the fundamentals.

Clinic 1 (March 12) will cover the following:

--Different types of modern mountain bikes
—Bike anatomy 101: the parts of a mountain bike and what they do
--Braking and shifting basics

Clinic 2 (March 26) will cover the following:

-- Basic bike fit and cockpit set up (bring your own bike for this)
-- All about pedals and shoes
-- What to wear when you ride

Clinic 3 (April 9) will cover the following:

--How to clean your bike
--Pre-ride safety check
--Front/rear wheel removal
--How to change a tube/plug a tubeless tire
--Basic tools to carry for on-trail repairs
--Trail etiquette


These clinics will cost $25 each or $60 for the series.
If you have purchased a bike from us, we will waive the fee. We’ll also apply the fee to the purchase of a new bike at The Path Bike Shop.
