This month we caught up with Saris Test Engineer, Todd.
‘Twas the day before Holiday vacation, when all through SCG,
Employees left the old farmhouse, and headed home with glee.
The customer service team hung phones their cradle with care,
They’ll return post-holiday to answer questions – so do not despair.
Wishing you and yours the happiest of holidays this year.
Holiday Hours for Customer Service:
In recent years November has become synonymous with growing facial hair thanks to cancer awareness foundations, such as Movember. Since their first 30 mustaches — or mos — back in 2003, the group has encouraged more than 4 million men to literally change the face of men’s health.

The Saris Gala has become the biggest single-night fundraiser for bike advocacy in the United States. Yes, number one. Ten years ago, a motley crew of “bike people” were sitting around brainstorming ways to spread the word and drum up support for better bicycling in the State of Wisconsin. Among this group was Chris Fortune, who lives by the saying, “if not us, then who?” So he stepped up, opened up his shop to the group and their friends, and the Saris Gala was born. To be fair here, the Saris Gala was born of very humble beginnings. The first year, it was really a pizza party with kegs of beer. In its first three years, the event raised $85,000 in total. But, it had “something” that kept people coming back.
This month we chatted with one of our lead assemblers, Rosario. She’s worked for Saris for 14 years and just bought a brand-new Trek road bike. Last Saturday, Rosario could be seen sporting her slick new ride at the Bike for Boys and Girls Club of Dane County.

Twenty five years ago we bought a 15-year-old rack company known as Graber Products. To honor such a significant milestone in the life of the company, we wanted to celebrate those who made 25 years of success possible.
In the days leading up to the 3rd Annual Dane County Honor Ride, our conference rooms filled up with aid station supplies, routes were marked, and the D.C. based Ride 2 Recovery crew made their way to Madison.
By the close of National Bike Month 2014, 60 Saris Cycling Group employees pedaled their way to the office. That’s over 30% of our workforce and 12 more commuters than last year!
