First Ride in 10 Months & New Trike



This is my New Catrike.
It has been 10 months since my accident - I may never ride a 2 wheel bike - my balance is gone.  But I have decided that riding a Recumbent Trike has settled my balance problem.  So I bought one Made in the USA - it is a Cartrike.  I want to thank Catrike's David Whitmer & the shop who put it together Laid Back Cycles.
I rode the trail that I had my accident on - It was Great, not all that scary.

More Later.

Update from Bruce Gordon Cycles





It has been since the middle of August 2016 when I had my slow speed bike accident, broke my kneecap and my last post.
I’ve gone from a wheelchair to a walker to a cane, and I think I’m going to use the cane for the rest of my life.

So – what is the future of Bruce Gordon Cycles?

I’m slowing down and thinking about retiring in a few years.  But, for now I’m back at work (Slowly) and am thinking I will make 3 or 4 bikes a year.  Rock ‘n Road tires are shipped out the same day the orders arrive, as well as other products we have on our onlinestore website.


The bikes will be built to measure and take some time – Please give me a call at the shop to discuss your needs.

Regards,
Bruce Gordon

News from Bruce Gordon Cycles - Complete Repair Department

I'm glad to announce that Tim Nicholls has joined my Crew.
Tim is an Expert Mechanic who does all kinds of repairs and tuneups.  In addition he has been putting up with me and my broken kneecap from a slow speed bike accident - nobodys fault but my own.

Tim can fix up any bike from an Old Huffy to a Modern Full Suspension Bike or a High End Race Bike.  And there is a quick turn around.   The Picture above is Mark Edwards who has been complaining about a noise on his one speed - Tim found it and fixed it and cleaned the whole bike - so Mark is a Happy Single Speeder.  Give Tim a call at the shop at (707) 762-5601.
