There is nothing more fun than taking a bike ride with the family on a nice summer day. Right now, Saluda Outfitters’ bike shop has some great deals on last year’s models–brand new and ready for a new home. Giant is the world’s largest producer of high quality bicycles and Saluda Outfitters is proud to be an official Giant bicycle dealer. Giant bikes provide the ultimate cycling experience for cyclists from beginners to Tour de France racers.
