Bike Helmets

Helmets are invaluable to your safety when riding a bicycle. After all, we only get one head!

Cycling Shoes

Cycling shoes have a stiff sole to distribute the pressure of pedaling across the full surface area of your foot, which would feel focused under the ball of your foot in a standard athletic shoe. We carry an impressive array of cycling shoes from Specialized, Giant, Mavic and FiveTen for all your cycling needs. Our bike experts are waiting to help you find the perfect shoe!

Pedals

The primary purpose of cycling shoes and pedals is to enhance comfort, endurance, and power on your bicycle. Clipless pedals can more than double the efficiency of a pedal stroke by allowing the rider to use a larger muscle group. If you’re looking to crush hills, add on mileage, or take your riding to the next level, clipless pedals are a great next step.

If you are considering clipless pedals for the first time, we know that it can be an intimidating process. Speak with one of our bike experts about scheduling an appointment to bring in your bike, and we will help you select the best shoes and pedals, install them, and get you comfortable on an in-store trainer before you even need to worry about hitting the road or trails!

Not interested in going clipless? Not to worry, we carry a great selection of platform pedals and shoes as well!

Cycling Gloves

Gloves are a valuable addition to your cycling gear and shouldn't be overlooked. They cushion your grip as you ride, ensuring that your blood flow and nervous pathways are unobstructed, keeping numbness at bay. They also provide physical protection, shielding your hands from debris while riding off-road and helping to minimize injury in the case of a crash.
