FAQs

Q. What's new in 2020?
A. Each of our three groups have been revitalized to better serve YOU, the riders. Cruisers is a shorter program that repeats 6 times throughout the spring and summer. Pedalers now includes a greater variety of pace groups. Grinders now supports more types of riders.

Q. I'm pretty sure I'm not fast enough for any of these programs, what do I do?
A. Sign up and show up! The JoyRider programs are developmental programs to help you achieve your goals. The coaches won't leave you behind and you will always have someone to ride with. If you want to push a little harder, jump in with the Grinders.

Q. I feel like I'm between two programs, which one do I choose?
A. We always recommend to GO FOR IT! Sign up for the "bigger" one, but it is completely up to you.  We will also allow you to transition to a different program if you find that the one you signed up for isn't a great fit for you.

Q. Do I need a certain bike to do any of the Joyrider programs?
A. Nope. You do need a bike and we strongly suggest a bicycle with gears.  We also suggest having your bike inspected to ensure it is safe to ride (especially if you haven't ridden it in a while.)

Q. Do we just ride? Or are there any classes or clinics to help me learn about my bike?
A. We definitely have clinics. All of the clinics for all of the programs will be open to everyone in the program.  A small sampling of the clinics we'll cover would be: How to Shift and Why, How should your bike fit and why it matters, Basic Maintenance and Repair, Rules of the Road (and Trail.)

Q. I'm interested, but I want to learn more about the program. How can I?
A. You have a few different options: 

1. You can stop by the store and any of our employees can give you more information on the program and answer your questions.

2. You can shoot us an email at info@trekbikestore.com and we'll answer any questions you might have.

3. Come to an information session.
