YiPsan in the News

In case you missed it there is a great article about Renold Yip of YiPsan Bicycles in Spokes Magazine. The beautiful "Sunflower" bike on the cover is still here at the shop if you would like to see it in person.

Renold's work also received a rave review in Mountain Flyer Magazine. The bike that was reviewed is a 650b mountain bike that is now part of the TBE Demo Fleet.

So if you are in the Frederick, Baltimore, D.C. area and you love handmade bikes, stop by and check out some of our famous rides. www.thebicycleescape.com

Promote Bicycles, Drink Beer, Eat, Repeat

The snowy craziness of the long and painful winter gave us time to think, plan and discuss. "Wouldn't it be GREAT to start a Frederick area bicycle advocacy group!" So, we took the leap and founded the Frederick Bicycle Coalition. We're still a young group but with the help of our friends at The Bike Doctor and area cyclists we are already making a difference. You can support our efforts and have a super meal by joining 80 or so other riders at Agro Dolce on Tuesday, April 20, at 7 pm. The beer will be provided by the fabulous Clipper City Brewing Co.

Check out our Blog were you can donate to the cause and fan us on Facebook as another way to keep in touch.
