Cycling The Abandoned PA Turnpike

Here's a nearby cycling location like no other! Just outside of Breezewood PA, this 13 mile long abandoned section of of the Turnpike features four lanes with two tunnels! Though it's not officially open for biking or hiking, it's  "use at your own risk" for just that. For more information click HERE. The tunnels are long and completely dark, DON'T ATTEMPT without a bright headlight. Not open for use from October through April. Picture courtesy of UnCovering PA


You'll Need a Bright Headlight

If you have ever ridden a bicycle through a tunnel along any of our local rail-trails you have found out first hand that a simple battery operated headlight is just not up to the task and can even be unsafe! A good headlight does more than just illuminate a small area directly in front of your tire, it will have a much brighter, whiter, wider, and deeper beam, similar to an auto headlight!  Thankfully, li-ion battery technology is moving foreward so quickly that a powerful rechargeable headlight is available at a fraction of what it would have sold for just 2-3 years ago. For example, the 450 Lumen Cygolite Dash shown in the picture ($69.99)  is auto headlight bright, has high, medium, and low beams, is water resistant, and has 3 really dazzling DAYTIME flashing modes for pavement riders.  Runtime for night use is up to 12 hours and up to 70 hours for daytime mode. Recharges off any USB port. And Cygolites are USA MADE! Other bright rechargeables start at only $29.99.


One of the better outdoor activities in our area is Rail-Trail cycling! Built upon abandoned railbed, the trails are easy riding due to their gentle grades, and the scenery is terrific! Pennsylvania has more miles of rail-trails  than just about any other state in the USA! These trails are safe for all ages and there is parking and food venues at various spots along the trail. Ideal bikes include "comfort" bikes, like the Women's Cannondale Adventure Hybrid shown in the picture. It's adjustable handlebars allow the rider to sit in an upright position and it's seat is wider and more padded  than usual, and is mounted on a shock absorbing seatpost. And since it's a hybrid, it's bigger wheels roll more effeciently and smoothly than smaller sizes. We sell all the best brands, like Trek, Giant, and Cannondale. You may find you'll want a helmet, waterbottle, mileage counter, seat bag, and perhaps a headlight for the tunnels. And maybe you'll want to attend one of our free maintainence classes to learn how to fix flats and perform simple trail side repairs. Click on the "Trans Allegheny Trails" link on our sidebar for maps and descriptions of our many easy-to-get-to local trails.


A great low cost solution to transporting your bike in a van or truck bed is to use a Bike Block! Just screw it onto a piece of wood and go! Most beds will hold up to 5 bikes this way. You can also use the block/wood combo for storing bikes- or you can mount a block on a wall! These fit all bikes with Quick Release axles- and a model for Fatbikes with 135mm QR axles too. Price for standard model shown in picture is $15.99




Getting your bikes to the place you want to ride is easy with one of our bike racks! We have the correct rack for your auto from great brands like Hollywood, Saris, Thule, and Yakima.  The Sportrider rack shown here is one of the easiest racks for you to load and is completely safe and secure for the bikes too! You won't pay more here for a rack and we're expert on the proper fit, especially roof racks. And we'll teach you how to properly install any rack we sell!



The Burley Bee is one of the best designed and best value child trailers! It's super light at only 20lbs, and carries 1 or 2 kids up to 100lbs combined with little effort. It's 20" wheels are far less bumpy than 16" that other brands use, it has lots space to carry snacks and other necessities like diapers, and it folds flat in seconds for storage or transport! It comes with a quick release attachment that fits any bike. And they are so much in demand you can easily sell it when the kids get bigger.

Speedplay Pedals!



City Cycle has Speedplay Pedals- the MOST desired road pedal there is!  Lots of models to choose from.

City Cycle Has KING CAGES!- Buy USA Made!

Like me, many cyclists still rely on old school waterbottles and cages, preferring them to hydration packs you carry on your back. One of the best cages is the aptly-named KING Cage, made in the USA from stainless steel. This cage won't deform or drop your bottle along the trail and also won't marr your bottle with stains like alloy cages can. It's built to last years and years. We carry 2 styles. Only $19.99

New FABRIC Cageless Waterbottles!

Here's a great new product from Fabric. This unique waterbottle mounts directly to your frame without a cage! It fits tight and releases easy. Sometimes simpler is better. In stock now.

Dumonde Tech Lubes Now In Stock

We've been using Dumonde Tech lubes and greases in the shop on a trial basis for most of this year and are now going to stock them for over-the-counter sales. We think the Dumonde Tech lubes are fantastic! Stop in and try em' for yourself.

City Cycle Accepts Trade-Ins

You may not be aware that we take trade in's of your old bike that you purchased here, and apply that toward a new bike purchase. Kid, BMX, and adult bikes. Your bike's trade in value will be determined on the usual issues- origional selling price and condition, as well as age- older bikes will loose value regardless of their origional price simply because the innovations of the newer models is highly sought out. We'll also consider a trade of a bike not purchased here if they are brands we sell, OR other bike shop quality brands, ie: Specialized, Raliegh, KHS, and others- ADULT BIKES ONLY in this case- call for details. We may ask for proof of ownership of your bike OR photo ID for our records if we didn't sell it to you because of rampant bike theft. We get calls from people all the time who are looking for their stolen bike and we are vigilant in our desire not to get caught up in that sort of thing. We use Bicycle Blue Book, Ebay and other methods to arrive at a fair trade in price. We DO NOT buy bikes outright- only if you want a new bike. Also, as a long time dealer of the origional Schwinn Bicycle Co. we actively seek many pre 1980 Schwinn bikes- for these we pay cash outright without it being a trade but we'll need your photo ID for our records. Call for details- 814-266-9641
