Gear West Xmas Logo

Mark your calendars for next Thursday, December 13th, from 5 pm – 8 pm as it will be a night you don’t want to miss! Here is what the night will entail:

  • Rub shoulders with U.S Olympic Triathlete Gwen Jorgenson and get your questions answered during her 30 min Q&A Session starting at 6pm. Learn how she quickly transferred to triathlon’s top rung, competing with the likes of Sarah Groff and Laura Bennett after being a standout in running and swimming!
  • Preview 2013 clothing from Hincapie, CEP, PoCampo, and SheBeest. Learn first hand from industry representatives!
  • Take advantage of store-wide holiday specials (Think Black Friday prices or better!) Preview to come soon!
  • An opportunity to win give-aways from Hincapie, CEP, and SheBeest with no purchase necessary!
  • Holiday refreshments (Holiday Cookies, Coffee & Hot Cocoa) and the chance to catch up with your fellow multisport athletes

To lubricate your holiday shopping, get 1/2 off a tune-up  (up to $45 in value) when you spend $100 or more in-store during the evening.

If you spend $200 or more, not only do you get the 1/2 tune-up certificate, but a $25 Gear West Bike Gift Card to be used during a future purchase! So, in all, you could save up to $70 off your future purchase of a tune-up and accessories if you play your cards correctly!

We hope to see you, whether if it is to mingle with fellow athletes, cross some items off your shopping list, or hear from Olympic Athlete Gwen Jorgenson!
