The owners of TriCycle & Run Jason and Laura Chance are both natives of the St. Michaels area. After leaving the area in 2001 to pursue careers in the Salisbury area, both are excited to come back to their hometown and raise a family. Jason is an active triathlete and has competed in events all over the country, raising money for charities such as Team in Training, to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and the Paralyzed Veterans of America. Jason hopes to bring his love of multi-sport to the area and host various events to showcase the beautiful Bay Hundred area. Laura enjoys bicycle riding as well as has completed the Seagull Century, a 100 mile bicycle ride from Salisbury to the beach and back.

COVID-19 Crisis and How We Move Forward

 

While the COVID-19 crisis has disrupted much of our regular every day lives, we want to let everyone know that we will remain open for bicycle service during these trying times.

Bicycles are a mode of transportation for many, and as activities are continuously limited, we want to be able to help families get outside together.

We are not encouraging that you come shop with us, but rather want you to know that should you need bike repairs or parts to aid your adventures, we will be operating on our regular business hours.

Sundays: 10a-2p

Mondays: 10a-5p

Tuesdays:  CLOSED

Wednesdays:  CLOSED

Thursday – Saturday:  10a-5p

We will also be limiting the number of people inside the building at any given time to 5.  Please note that there will be times that we will need to bring our children in to work with us, and therefore may ask you to wait outside.

We would encourage you to call our store at 410-745-2836 and/or send us an email to tricycleandrun@gmail.com to set up an appointment for service. One of our staff members will be more than happy to meet you at the front door and assist you at any time.

Again, we ask that you respect the decision for our small, family-owned business, to stay open to help with the SERVICE of your bicycles. We will be happy to help you with any of your other fitness needs after the State of Emergency has been lifted.
We are all in this together!
Much love,  Laura & Jason (and Ben & Natalie)

 

Epic Pi Day 5K Free Fun Run – TAKE 2!

 

March 14, 2020 marks the 5 year anniversary of our FREE 5K Fun Run Series here at the shop.

Math nerds unite, and come have some irrational fun! Just like the first year, we encourage everyone to bring a little pie to share after the race.

We began this event series back in 2015 with the Pi Day Run (3/14/15), and have successfully continued to offer a FREE race series that gives back to the community with each and every event. We will continue that with this month’s event by collecting GIFT CARDS to be donated to the St. Michaels High School After Prom Party Committee. Each year, a group of volunteers (mostly parents), work together to produce a safe, alcohol- and drug-free “party” for students immediately following Prom. Throughout the evening, students that attend are eligible to receive various door prizes for pledging to remain drug- and alcohol-free! Examples of gift cards to donate can be anything from gas cards, grocery cards, Amazon cards, iTunes cards, etc!

The FUN RUN series is designed to be just that….FUN! We keep things fun by having the fun runs set up as prediction races. What is a prediction race? We ask you to try and guess your finish time and then, the participant that comes closest to their official time is declared a race winner! Any participant that guesses within 10 seconds is declared a winner in our book. Sound like fun? You should come give it a try! Some races we have no winners, and some races we have had 10 winners!

On-site registration and bib pickup will begin inside the shop at 8:00am. The race will begin at 9:00am. We ask all participants to try and arrive no later than 8:30am. Please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School (200 Seymour Ave.), then make the short walk down to the shop.
