The shop is managed by Chris Arterburn, a veteran bicycle expert and longtime supporter of our community.
Due to the pandemic inventories are extremely low and there are wait times of several months for nearly all popular mountain bikes. If you need a bike, don’t delay!

Thank You Giant Bikes and Full Cycle: While they are no longer official sponsors of BJC, we’d like to say thanks to Giant Bikes and Full Cycle for their many years of support. Their generosity toward BJC and our athletes has been wonderful and we greatly appreciate everything they’ve done. We’ll always be fans of both companies.
THANK YOU RETURNING SPONSORS: These companies have renewed their support for 2021. We’re so grateful for their commitment to BJC!
