Oakley Cycles and Serotta Open House and Race Weekend

Oakley Cycles and Serotta to host an Open House Event for the Hyde Park Blast Weekend


Oakley Cycles is pleased to be a supporting sponsor of the 2010 Hyde Park Blast in Cincinnati, June 26, 2010. The Hyde Park Blast takes place one block from our front door and we invite you to join the festivities.

The Hyde Park Blast was co-founded by Cheryl Koopman and Chad Sims, both Hyde Park residents, as a way for the community to have fun, be active and raise money for a good cause – the fight against cancer.

Since 2001, more than $220,000 has been donated to CancerFree Kids, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Wellness Community in addition to Give Back Cincinnati by the Blast.


Friday June 25th 6:00pm to 9:00pm   Joins us for a kick off celebration the evening before the 2010 Hyde Park Blast, featuring our guest, legendary frame builder, Ben Serotta! Also, we will have as special guests, Stan and Bonnie Mavis from the Serotta management team, and Paraic McGlynn, the Serotta Director of Cycling Science. A tent will be setup in front of the store to accommodate everyone! Beer, wine, soft drinks and snacks will be served.


Can’t make it Friday night? Stop by on Saturday to talk to Ben, Stan, Bonnie and Paraic. The Serotta Mobile Fit Lab will be here as well. They will be showing the newest developments from Serotta, offering demo rides, and previewing the new line of Catlike helmets.


Oakley Cycles will also be showing our newest bike, jointly developed with Serotta, the “Ariosa”. A new concept blending performance, comfort, and premium ride quality, these bikes will be available in stock sizes from 49cm to 61cm. The limited edition production roll-out model will feature a thoughtfully selected parts group, and hand built wheel set.
