Established in 1999, Wheel Fast Bicycle Company has grown to become the Chatham and Springfield area’s premier bicycle shop, catering to everyone from casual bike trail riders to competitive racers and multi-sport athletes. The Wheel Fast name has become synonymous with friendly customer service, quality products, unsurpassed repair work and quick turnarounds.
In 2010, Wheel Fast, through the efforts of owner Matt Saner and shop employee Bob Santarelli, is introducing the Wheel Fast Cycling Team & Rider’s Club for avid cyclists and those simply looking to get into the sport. For a $125.00 yearly fee, members will receive the official club kit (cycling jersey, bib shorts, and eventually socks) as well as special member discounts at Wheelfast. From Spring to Fall, a minimum of two weekday rides per week and one weekend ride per month around the bike trails and area country roads will be led by designated club members.
In addition, Wheel Fast will continue its involvement in the area’s annual cycling events. All Wheel Fast Cycling Team & Rider’s Club members will be encouraged to wear their club kits on these and any other rides. A group of members will also represent the club as a team at bicycle races and multi-sport events throughout the Midwest. The mission will be to promote cycling as a positive activity, promote health and fitness, educate those who want to learn more about the sport and create a non-intimidating social atmosphere where anyone can feel welcome no matter what their experience.
