The most important part of the BikeWorld team is YOU, our customers. We're interested in you having fun and feeling good. We do repairs, provide information about area bicycling, act as a liaison to governmental bodies, assist the Chain Reaction Cycling Club and sponsor a wide range of events toprovide fun things to do by bike. We like riding bikes, we like people and we'd like you to come see us.

Landon Beans has been riding bikes as long as he can remember, and completed his first quarter century before his 9th birthday. He also hikes, camps, climbs, and kayaks. To say Landon likes new products is an understatement. Not only is he likable, he likes everything, including an assortment of grandma sweaters.
