Cycling enthusiasts in the Corona, Riverside and San Bernardino areas of the Inland Empire won’t be lacking for something to do over the upcoming July 4th weekend thanks to Jenson USA, one of the nation’s largest retailers of bicycles, parts and accessories in the country.
If you’ve never been in a parade, now’s your chance. Jenson USA will be one of approximately 75 attractions at the annual Corona “Main Street USA Parade” on Saturday, July 4th. Jenson is inviting all of its cycling friends and customers to join in on the fun and be a part of the parade, proudly displaying the red, white and blue. In preparation for the big celebration, Jenson USA is holding a pre-parade bike decorating party on Thursday, July 2 from 4:00pm to 7:00pm at its retail superstore location, at 2410 Wardlow Road, #109, Corona, California 92880 conveniently located just north of the 91 Freeway, exit at Auto Center Drive. When you come by the Corona store on Thursday, bring a red, white or blue t-shirt and a Jenson USA team member will apply a custom Fourth of July iron-on graphic to your shirt for free plus receive a “goodie bag” filled with Jenson USA merchandise.
