ORANGE PEDAL CREW BLOG

Hello, Buongiorno, Bonjour, Hola,  bike enthusiasts! Welcome to Orange Pedal Cycling’s blog! This being our very first blog; I will tell you a little bit about us:

 We opened our doors in 2015 at this location, as a bicycle repair and coffee shop. The owners Stefano, and Trish Miraglia, being Italian, believed that they would share the best Italian coffee and bikes Reno has to offer! 

We are a local business, but get customers from all over the world, though mostly from Reno, Truckee, and North Cal.! We repair, buy, and sell bikes and make a mean cup of coffee!

The Beginner Series

If you are a beginner biker and you haven’t gotten your bike equipment yet, here are a couple things that you’ll need to get started!

You should start with the best helmet. The best helmet would be one that fits your head. I'm so sorry, I'll be serious now. Just like with bikes there are different types of helmets, for example, there are road, commuter, mountain bike helmets; and they all serve a different purpose.

Mountain bike helmets have an L shape in order to protect your neck and give more coverage....

The Beginner Series

Some of you may be aware that the person writing this blog (me) would be categorized as a beginner biker, and if you are not aware, hello! The last time I rode a bike was when I was twelve and had just ran headlong into a stationary basketball hoop. So, I do not have much biking experience, which is why I wanted to blog about biking for beginnings. This way, if you are like me, and do not know much about biking or want to start biking, you can have a gander and maybe learn a thing or two!

First things fir...

I would really like to inspire our website visitors to join us on Meetup with this blog post. Meetup is a site where we post information on Orange Pedal Cycling events, for example, on October 20 we have a bike ride event. On the site you can say whether or not you would like to join it, and see more information about this ride and more! 

That being said, we would like to include more people in our events, and to that extent we have added more Orange Pedal events that include running and walking, so you don’t have to be a c...

Hello Orange Pedal Website visitors! I would like to share a fun little thing happening in the world right now concerning bikes and coffee (our two specialities!). 

So, Nespresso paired with a Swedish bike brand, Vélosophy, and together they created RE-CYCLE, a stylish bike made out of recycled aluminum Nespresso pods! They are hoping to show people what they can do with their recycling, and motivate people to recycle their Nespresso coffee capsules.

1,000 RE-CYCLE bikes will be sold starting August 12, and each will cost $1...

Here’s something that maybe you haven’t heard about, but may interest you, as it affects our shop and all bike shops in the United States currently. 

Trump’s tariff increase from 10% to 25% on Chinese imports that took effect in September will change bike businesses for quite possibly the worse. Since all bike shops import bike parts from China, this tariff raise will cause bike shops to pay a lot more money for bike parts. 

So, how will this affect us? To put it simply, badly. Bike parts that we used to pay $8.49 for, we no...

What does your schedule look like? Have any openings on Sunday? Because boy do I have something that will fill up your weekend’s morning! 

Since you are reading a bike shop’s blog, I assume that you might be interested in going on bike rides. So, Orange Pedal Cycling Shop acts as a hub for the weekly Sunday morning bike rides some of our favorite patrons take part in. Every Saturday and Sunday a couple of bikers will meet up at the Orange Pedal, get their gear in order inside the shop, then head out for a ride. The ride len...

Nowadays with traffic and pollution, bikes are a great way to get from point A to point B. However, for most, biking is unrealistic because of long distances, and the effort it takes to bike them. 

“It’s exactly the same, but you go faster and farther on a bike!” 

says a Reno biker concerning E-bikes; E-bikes are electric bicycles that can get up to 28 MPH, and they are a great solution for getting to point A to B without the hassle of long distances and fatigue. “They (E-bikes) are more advantageous for commuting because a...
