Family Cycling Center was started by John Brown back in the early eighties, right about the time Mountain biking was starting to catch on. Over the years John moved from a garage shop, into a tiny place on 41st Ave, in Santa Cruz. Every day he’d line up the bikes out front on the sidewalk similar to the way you’ll still see them stacked up two blocks from the beach. And in the evenings, he’d stack what was left over back inside carefully overlapping pedal after pedal to fit more bikes into the shop.
Over the better part of 20 years the street Family Cycling Center started on, the bike industry, and most everything else has changed. The constant? Bikes are still putting smiles on peoples faces everyday. We love being a part of that enjoyment, and being able to curate what we think are some of the best products in the bike industry and being able to offer these brands to our customers.
We sincerely thank you for your patronage, and bringing your beloved bikes, and questions to our shop. From beginner to Pro Level, We do it ALL! Thank you!
