Route 303 Construction Update plus Shameless Bike Plug

Down in Peninsula earlier today, Doug had a chat with the construction crew while he took the opportunity to snap the above picture. They told him there was a chance they may be done ahead of schedule, but check back with us to confirm. It looks like they've got the new railroad tracks laid, plus the surrounding concrete and asphalt, with just some fill-in and finishing work on the edges left to do. See this page for a map of the area with detour information.

The next time you're out for a ride, do it on a bike that won't let a closed road slow you down, such as the 2011 Raleigh Rx 1.0 cyclocross!

A few weeks ago, we special-ordered one of these Sherman-tank-green bad boys in 59cm for a Peninsula customer, and we also ordered a 57cm just to throw in for good measure. Before we knew it, we had to order a second 59cm for another customer! We've still got the 57cm in stock in Peninsula, plus a 55cm in Medina, and a 59cm in Rocky River. The 50cm and 53cm are available by special-order.

Sizing note: We've found that the sizing on the Rx 1.0 runs a little small compared to similar road bikes. For example, our two 59cm customers typically ride 58cm road bikes. I usually ride a 56cm road bike, and the 57cm Rx 1.0 works well for me.

The Rx 1.0 features Raleigh's Atomic 13 butted aluminum frame, Easton EC90X carbon fork, and Shimano 105 shifters and derailleurs. If you're in the market for a road bike that can tackle any road, a high-performance Towpath destroyer, or a race-ready ride for this fall's cyclocross season, check out the Raleigh Rx 1.0!
