Specializing in the purest form of high-end bicycles, gear, clothing and riding is our passion and high calling.
We believe that Road Bikes are the highest form of cycling worship. If you live for the Spring Classics, Grand Tours and every other road race, criterium and time-trial that you can find... then you found your brethren.
We believe Cyclocross bikes were not meant to hang in the garage during the summer months waiting for rain. Cross is a lifestyle. If you like to ride wherever you want and feel like exploring that dirt road just because it's there... then welcome to our family.
We believe that all Mountain Bikes should be the ultimate off-road creation. Once you go big, you will never go back. Little wheels are for kids bikes, big wheels and fat tires are for grown-ups... enough said.
Cyclopedia of Redding is just the coolest place ever... period. It's not a "bike shop," we have a very cool studio that serves several purposes.
First, as a place for cyclists to meet, share ideas, dreams and build bikes.
Second, as a space to clinic and teach repairs and maintenance.
Third, as a showroom for the latest technology and hot products.
Fourth, as a launch pad for the finest bike tours in Nor Cal.
We are young and old, but most importantly, we are riders. We ride to live and live to ride. We ride when the mailman won't go out. We call ourselves adults but we act like children. We love good looking bikes and clothing but ignore sweat, mud, blood and snot. We follow the rules of the Velominati and have our own secret fraternity called the Redding Rough Riders.
