Bike of The Week: Pete’s Bike
Meet Pete's three decade old mountain bike and submit your bike for a chance to be featured as bike of the week in Arlington.
Welcome to our new Arlington Bike of the Week series. This is an opportunity for people in Arlington to tell us more about how they use their bikes to explore Arlington. This week, local bike rider shared his bike that he’s owned for almost three decades. Learn more about Pete’s bike below.
“I own a base model Trek “mountain” bike that I got for my 14th birthday back in the early 1990s. At almost 30 years old, only the frame, front derailleur, and shifter are original. In 2018, I replaced the original fork with a Crust Clydesdale.”
“I use this bike for errands and grocery store trips. Before the pandemic, I used the bike to take my oldest to school in a WeeHoo trailer on my way to work. In 2019, we used it to complete the 2019 Disaster Relief Trials. Good times!”
