Welcome to The Bike Shop! We have been helping our community ride bikes, have fun, and feel great since 1978!

In 1978, Rex and Pegi Cooper purchased The Bike Shop, along with their sons, Ryan and Travis. After 34 years of serving our community, Rex and Pegi retired.

In 2012, Ryan, along with his wife Tracey, and their daughter's Jorja and Sara teamed up to carry on the family business! The Cooper's find joy in helping people discover their passion for cycling. Throughout the years they have helped generations of families select their child's first bicycle and help introduce riders to our areas extensive trail systems. In addition, The Bike Shop has assisted athletes in achieving their goals, including Ironman Triathlons, National Championships, World Championships, and the Olympics. 

Ryan has learned the art of mechanics from his father, is certified in bicycle fitting, and loves the sport of cycling.  With all the experience through the years The Coopers will assist you in finding the bicycle that is perfect for you, and keep it serviced for years to come.

We have enjoyed serving the Redding community for more than 45 years and are excited for you to Visit The Bike Shop today ! Come see why our enthusiasm for cycling, fun and fitness continues to grow!
