The Devil's Gear Bike Shop
The Devil's Gear Bike Shop is thrilled to once again partner with the Closer to Free Ride as the exclusive Bike Tech Sponsor. Here’s what the team at The Devil’s Gear has to say about the Ride and our community:
The Closer to Free Ride for Smilow Cancer Hospital demonstrates the transformative power of setting a goal and working to achieve it, of perseverance and courage in the face of difficulty, and of riding together and for each other.
These are the traits we revere in legendary cyclists, and we’d say without a doubt that they’re more plentiful in the Closer to Free Ride than in the Tour de France.
It’s been an honor to play a part in growing the Closer to Free Ride into an important source of support for Smilow Cancer Hospital. We welcome the chance to help riders in whatever way we can, whether it be teaching someone how to fix a flat, hosting a clinic on how to train for your first century, or just making sure tires are full and chains are running smooth the morning of the ride.
If you're riding and want any kind of bike-related help, we'll do our best to give it to you. Visit Devil's Gear website here.
