I would like to take a minute and thank the guys at The Ride for being so helpful to Kathey and I. We started our biking career several weeks ago and purchased some fine Wal Mart bicycles. I decided a... few days later to just see what all the hype was about for a "real" bike. We walked into The Ride and were totally out of our element and price range but because of the hospitality decided to see what it was all about. I purchased my bike the same day after unbelievable shock at how much more fun it was to ride that Specialized Roll than my Kent I had purchased. My wife was much more conscious about the price and was just glad I was pleased. After a week of riding and me adjusting my seat to fit her several times she was also hooked and picked herself one up the following week. The next weekend, two of my best friends came to visit and ride with us. Just for fun I let them ride our bikes and we rode their Wal Mart bikes Saturday morning. After getting back on their bikes to ride back they went and purchased themselves two specialized bikes and have been riding every day since. All that being said, I want to say thanks again for a level of customer service that I thought had been long forgotten. C B was there every step of the way with us and continues to make sure we are satisfied every visit. If not for him and his helpful nature we may have walked out and not be riding anymore. Thanks C B. See More

Great shop, eager to help but not pushy at all. They want to make sure that you get the right bike or product for your needs, not the most expensive. The test rides around the parking lot are also helpful when trying to figure out what you want or need. See More

This shop is amazing! Everyone there is extremely helpful and friendly. I went in having no idea about bikes, or what bike would suit me best, and they took the time to talk to me and match me up with... the perfect one. I purchased a Specialized Roll Low Entry, and I could not be happier with it. I have been in several times for different attachments and racks, and each time they have exactly what I need. See More

Everyone at The Ride is incredible! Erik and his well trained staff continue to help me time and time again anytime I have ever needed it. The shop has done everything from my first ever custom built, tune-ups and repairs, to my latest frame swap! They are always quick and honest with you, and get just excited about your bike as you do. Thanks guys! Can't wait to see the new frame! See More

I purchased Parlee Altum from The Ride a couple of years back. I loved that bike and so I was really disappointed when I hit a deep pothole and cracked the frame. Fortunately for me, Erik and the res...t of the good folks at The Ride took my case to Parlee and they are replacing my frame under warranty - and redoing my custom paint job. In my experience it is rare to find that high level of integrity these days. That's only one reason why The Ride is among the most highly-rated local bike shops anywhere. And if you have yet to ride a Parlee, you are missing out. They offer hand-crafted, custom built frames, custom paint jobs, awesome power transfer – everything you could want in a road bike. I recommend both of these companies without reservation.

Update: Catastrophe! My beautiful new Parlee was destroyed in a freak accident. I turned to Erik and The Ride for help. I just took delivery of my new rebuilt Parlee. It is so SWEET. I'm fortunate to have had a nice spare bike to ride during the rebuild, but after my first ride of the new Parlee I realize what I have been missing. There is no comparison. I just want to express how impressed and appreciative I am of your help with my Parlee. I thought it might cost more than the estimate - I wouldn't have questioned additional charges had there been any - but I never imagined the rebuild would come in under the estimate. You had no obligation to pass on to me the savings, but pass them on you did. I just sincerely admire the exceptional way you do business and I sincerely appreciate the extra care and courtesy you have shown me. The Ride is awesome.

Great people to deal with. Highly recommend!
First climb on south loop of Enders.. How often do you make it? I’m about 50 :/ 50

Wednesday was a really cool day here at the shop! We had 2 Hungarian gentlemen stop in needing a new tire and a few minor repairs. Turns out they are riding across America , from North Carolina to the Santa Monica pier in California 😳. Really neat to hear there motivation and stories from their trip so far!!! After a few pics and exchanging contact info they informed us of their webpage/blog they are doing for the trip. Here is a link to the day they were in the shop. You can relive their past miles and even a link for live tracking while they are on the bikes........#coolestdayatworkyet…

You think your wheels are having a bad day.......could be worse .
