Spring Kick-Off Fiesta: Free March 7 party kicks off bicycling season in Northeast Ohio

What: Century Cycles' Spring Kick-Off Fiesta is the local bike store's free spring party to kick off the bicycling season in Northeast Ohio. This year the party's theme celebrates Century Cycles' 22nd Anniversary, and welcomes the newest addition to the shop's bicycle line-up, Salsa Cycles. Of course, the dominant theme in everyone's mind this year is replacing cabin fever with spring fever, as we all anxiously await the end of this year's harsh winter.

When: Friday, March 7, 2014, at 7:00 p.m.

Where: Century Cycles, 19955 Detroit Road, Rocky River OH 44116

Cost: Free and open to everyone who is ready for winter to be over. No RSVP necessary.

For more information: Go to, call 440-356-5705, or email

Event details: Besides hanging out with a bunch of folks who are also very grateful for the arrival of prime bicycling weather, come to the party to enjoy tasty fiesta-themed snacks and beverages, and win door prizes donated by Century Cycles and Salsa Cycles.

"This year, more than ever, our customers are ready for the snow to melt so they can get out on their bikes, as well as enjoy other outdoor warm-weather activities," said Scott Cowan, owner of Century Cycles.

"Salsa Cycles have been a popular addition to our stores already, with their touring bikes that appeal to our customer's sense of adventure," Scott added. "Plus, our first shipment of their fat-tired snow bikes sold out almost immediately, helping to extend the cycling season even through the blizzards of this past season."

About Salsa Cycles

At Salsa Cycles, they believe a sense of adventure makes life better. The bicycle can be so much more than just a bike; it's a path to new places, new people, and amazing experiences. Salsa. Adventure by bike.
