Wally's Bicycles will be on board at the Official Ultra 520K Texas Training Camp this weekend. If you're an ultra-distance athlete or looking for a distance that's a bit longer than an Ironman, this might be the right event for you! Check out the flyer or link below for details.
A while back I sat down with a lady who had a triathlon training group in the RGV. We talked a bit... a lot, about current and future plans, her for her training group and me for my plans to open a bicycle shop. 9 years later we're still great friends. Who doesn't love Sandy Triplett Overly? She's a great person, a phenomenal coach and although it looks like this Cannondale Bicycle is just a "bit" too small for her, you can catch it at Camp University's Night at the Races Silent Auction next week. We're sure it's going to brighten up a kids day and start tearing up the road very soon! ... See MoreSee Less
First a 100k ride at the Jalapeno100 and now this! At 9 years old, Alora Jeremy Valladares not only came out to join our 53x11 Monday Ride, but she CRUSHED it too! She's a super-awesome, super-fast, and super-smart cyclist. Keep an eye out for this little lady on your next ride, sharing the peloton with her is a privilege! ... See MoreSee Less
Michele Sweet was one of the VERY first cyclists to purchase a Cannondale bicycle from Wally's Bicycles. She's a regular at our shop,a great person and now she's moving over to the trails on her 27.5 Catalyst. Michele, we wish you two many happy adventures together!! ... See MoreSee Less
We started off with what seemed like a monster headwind and of course at the turn-around-point a front blew in and we had another bigger, more massive headwind that was mixed in with a bit of rain. Never a dull moment on the 53x11 Ride!
We roll out at 6pm every Monday evening, rain or shine. Come out, enjoy the ride, the company, a cold one after the ride, and don't forget to tighten your axle nuts ... See MoreSee Less
A couple of years back this gentleman walked into our shop and purchased one a mtn bike from my personal stable. He's been unstoppable since. Bubba Angel is nothing short of inspirational. I don't know a person who rides more back to back days than this cyclist right here. Whether it's on the dirt, on the road, the US or Mexico, rain or shine, day or dark, one thing is for certain.... BUBBA WILL RIDE!!! Proud and honored to sell this gentleman his first new bicycle in a VERY long while. Good luck, Bubba & thanks for being a great friend to everyone!!! ... See MoreSee Less

Last week we saw the return of IronManny, we all know "Wind-Tunnel" just isn't the same without him! We'll be rolling out this evening, don't forget our shop always provides a SAG vehicle. If you ever need help during a ride, call the number in the comment section below!!!
If you've run into a Felt IA down here in the RGV it's more than likely Emmanuel Lopez rolling... flying by on it, but now we can officially say that there's one more! IronManny's other half (and fiancée!), Spencer Paige will soon be rolling side-by-side one her superaero tri-bike. Natalie has come VERY far in the sport in just a few years, she's now a seasoned triathlete and has completed the 70.3 Texas in Galveston. Good luck, Natalie! We hope you and "Craig" have many new adventures together!!! ... See MoreSee Less
Each race brings a new experience. Riding 56mi on a fixed-gear bicycle was just as about painful as I thought it would be... but I'm definitely looking forward to my next event on it!!
The IRONMAN 70.3 Texas event was one for the books. Team #NOPOSWOW, did spectacular, as did so many other athletes from the RGV. I would like to extend a HUGE thank you to everyone who represented SoTexas and especially those who flew our shop colors representing Wally's Bicycles.
Here are a few shots of our friends doing what they do best. Swimming, biking, running and most importantly smiling! I couldn't find any photos of Ms. Earnesta Leonce Taylor, but she was out there rocking that course & flying our colors too!
The 53x11 Monday Ride is rolling strong! Come on out, enjoy the sunshine and the company of other cyclists every Monday. We're back to two loop options,wheel's always down at 6pm sharp!!! ... See MoreSee Less
When he's not climbing down the side of tall-tall buildings, we see Ken Smith doing a lot of running and riding! We caught this pic a day late (after his new bike's maiden voyage) but as we always say, better late than never! Ken upgraded his hardtail mtn-bike to a full suspension Cannondale Trigger! Lots of suspension, lots of travel, lots of comfort and most importantly, lots of fun! Good luck, Ken, we'll see you out on the trails! ... See MoreSee Less

Few know the feeling of crossing the finish line after a 140.6mile journey. Ignacio Alaniz Jr completed his first IRONMAN in the Woodlands last year on an aluminum road bike and is is giving the distance another attempt this year in Whistler, BC, Canada, on his Cervélo P2. We're sure we're going to see him set a PR on his new machine. Good Luck, Ignacio, and thanks for letting us be part of your journey! ... See MoreSee Less
The dust is just starting to settle for us after our 5th Annual Stanley's Sprint Triathlon. We had by far the harshest weather conditions but also our most successful event to date. Dos Guys Race Productions can not be more thankful for everyone who came out and made our event a success.
From participants, to spectators, and especially all of our SUPER-AWESOME volunteers, we were happy to host another TRI in the RGV. Check out the links below to hundreds of more photos by Ramon Hermida Multimedia and Jim Palumbo. We'll see y'all again next year!!!
Karen came by our shop with a bicycle that was 25yrs old. She had done an extraordinary job of taking care and maintaining it all while riding and training on it regularly too! Now Kelly's ready to step up to the world of multi sport on her new Cervélo P3 with some local events in her very near future. WTG, Karen!! Good luck!!! ... See MoreSee Less
