Below are three Your Bicycle stories from new and novice riders who looked to bicycling as a new challenge in their life.  From simple fitness, facing life’s milestones or testing limits, each is an inspiration, and we enjoy being able to share them with our customers, fans and friends.

We know that many more of you have a story that could motivate someone else in 2015, and we invite you to share your bicycle adventures at  www.bgindy.com/for/yourbicycle.   Who knows, on some ride next year, you might just meet someone you inspired. 

After we publish Your Bicycle picture and story, we will send you a $25 Bicycle Garage Indy Gift Card, to help you with your next season of cycling adventures.
