We'd like to think thats why we've been voted one of America's Best Bike Shops by the NBDA (National Bike Dealers Association) for two years in a row! Stop by and see why!
Owner Ben Gruber started cycling in college and hasn’t stopped pedaling! After graduating from Penn State in 1995 he followed his future wife, Mary Ann, to Chicago and started using his degree in education – teaching in the Chicago Catholic School System. However, his love affair with the bike was just heating up! Living in Chicago was a formative part of his life and gave him the opportunity to work in the bike industry during his teaching summer breaks. He spent time working for a bike rental company, but soon landed at Village Cycle Center – one of the world’s largest Trek Bicycle dealers. He started as a part time sales associate, but after a few year came on board full time and eventually rose through the ranks to become the store’s General Manager. The bike bug had bitten, but his family was about to expand – and his desire to own his own store did too! When the only Trek dealer in Charleston had decided to drop the brand, Trek began looking for someone to fill that void………..and the rest is history!
Today, Ben remains committed to getting others involved in cycling and making the bicycle a part of everyone’s lives. He and his wife Mary Ann are avid cyclists, often leading group rides from the store and enjoy seeing the world by bike. They love taking their sons, Douglas and William, on trail rides and rides around their neighborhood. They look forward to a long and enjoyable future in the Lowcountry.
