How to win with EX2 Adventures and The Bike Lane

The Bike Lane is proud to once again sponsor EX2 Adventures for 2014!  We can’t wait to see everyone at the races.  See below the latest enewsletter from EX2 and how everyone can win by racing!


Hello from EX2 Adventures!
We are excited to announce that our long time sponsor, The Bike Lane (TBL), will be returning for the 2014 race season and they’ve got some awesome plans for EX2 racers! For those of you that don’t know, TBL is owned and operated by a husband and wife team, Anne and Todd Mader. Many of you have probably seen them racing in EX2 events on the running trails and on their bikes! TBL is truly a business built around its community. They sponsor mountain biking races like ours, they sponsor charity rides and do tons of advocacy work for bicycle safety. They love what they do and it shows. Throughout the year they offers clinics, bike maintenance classes and just get out there and have fun, shop rides. Their shop motto: “Ride globally, shop locally” is one that we at EX2, strive to live by.  Visit The Bike Lane at

Want to win a new bike? During race check in, all EX2 registered racers will receive a really cool Bike Lane car magnet. Attached to the magnet will be a GOLDEN ticket – make sure you keep it safe!  Bring your GOLDEN ticket into either the Springfield Bike Lane or Reston Bike Lane and spin the prize wheel.  Everyone who brings in a raffle ticket will win things like a free helmet, free t-shirt, tubes, etc.  Your GOLDEN ticket will then be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a sweet, mountain bike at the end of the race season! Thank you Bike Lane!

Mark your calendars – TBL will be hosting two bike maintenance clinics, which will cover the most common mechanical issues during a race.  Don’t let a mechanical take you out of the race! The pros at TBL will show you how to get it fixed and keep moving! The first clinic will be on 2/23/14 at 10:30am at the Springfield location. The second will be on 7/20/14 at 10:30am at the Reston location.  For those of you interested in EX2’s XTERRA race, TBL will be hosting an XTERRA clinic on May 13th at the Springfield location with XTERRA World’s Champion, Dr. Kathy Couthino. This is a great opportunity to get some race tips and some inspiration from the amazing Dr. Kathy. Check the EX2 Facebook page for more info as the events get closer.

Last but not least, TBL is hosting the EX2 Season Kick-Off Party on Sunday, 2/16 from 5-7pm at their Springfield location. Please join us for some frosty beverages, a raffle drawing every half hour for some cool stuff (including a free race entry) AND the shop will be open with special discounts for all EX2-ers! It’s a great chance to meet your fellow racers, bike enthusiasts and to get stocked up for 2014!  You can RSVP here –

It’s going to be a great year and we can’t wait to get it started! See you all on the 16th!
