Do you have a youth (grades 6-12) in your life who likes mountain biking or who might like to learn? Great! Bring them to The Bicycle Escape on February 27 at 6:30pm.
Bottom bracket height is always a bit of a compromise. A high BB reduces the likelihood of striking your pedals on rocks, but it also means a higher center of gravity which can have a negative effect on handling.
A good, well thought-out map holds true value. It can get you safely to your destination and requires no battery or cell service.
We are once again super honored to have been designated as one of the best shops in the country.
What a great adventure! Our C&O Canal 3 day / 2 night camping trip was amazing! The weather, food, and company couldn’t have been better!
OK weight weenies, our bike weight index is back and in full swing! We created this database years ago but discarded it when we migrated to our new website.

The City of Frederick Sustainability Committee and The Bicycle Escape invite you to the Tour de Trees, in honor of Earth Day 2017!
We had a great time at the Saint Patrick’s Day ride. We met at Brewer’s Ally then road the city streets forming the pattern of a shamrock.
The Bicycle Escape has a close relationship with our friends at Deity, and we are more than excited to help them release their impressive 2017 product line up!
This rusty little Pilot was a really fun restoration project! The bicycle’s owner chose to have the bike painted and some of the more character-building pieces chromed. The finished product shows it all and her childhood bike is ready to go!
Some old bikes just want to be resurrected from their state of rusty disrepair. They yearn to be born again as fresh, near-new machines waiting to hit the road… this bike was not one of those bikes.
Are you looking forward to warmer spring temperatures? Join us for our annual Groundhog Ride on Saturday February 4th!
Chef Bryan Voltaggio said: “No child should go hungry!” We agree, as does Giant Bicycles.
Our latest restoration was a ton of fun. The scope of the work called for fresh paint and a few new parts but no headlight work or chrome plating.
We have some upcoming FREE bike repair and maintenance clinics scheduled for February!
