Bikes in the Valley

Results from Season Opener

 The first Orient  Express Bikes in the Valley event, the Ronnie’s Cycles Spring Opener,  could be summed up in one word,  #tylerstrong.  


One of our 2nd generation BIV racers who comes to every event and races with his dad, was critically injured in a car accident and remains in the hospital  with a long road ahead. Our thoughts and prayers were with the D’Anthony family on this day.
