Cobbles and Waffles-Paris Roubaix Live @ The Commons
Spring is in the air, the rain is falling and the snow is melting.....For a cycling fan, this means: Classics Season. Come watch Paris-Roubaix with us LIVE at the shop. It is the original gravel grinder, the Hell of the North and the Queen of the Classics. This race will have you "on the rivet" as both a racer and a spectator. Lots of action and we will have some great insights at the shop with a few racers who have actually felt the bone-jarring pain at race pace. And a Belgian morning wouldn't be complete without some Liège waffles and coffee. Zoë Roy will be serving up some delicious homemade Liege waffles and coffee will be provided by Stumptown Coffee Roasters. Doors to the shop will open Sunday at 6:00am and the party will go until all racers see their way to the Velodrome in Roubaix. More info
