About Us

Established in 1963, Wheel Away Cycle Center is known as a “mainstream” store where people buy bikes for family use, beginning at ages 2 to 3 years old. Also catering to a limited market of high-end road and mountain bikers.

The business was started by Ric Paul’s father in 1963 and has operated as a family business continuously since then. Ric and his family continue to run Wheel Away Cycle Center as a family business, catering to the needs of the local community and focusing on what they do best, personalized service to every customer.

The knowledgeable staff at Wheel Away knows the products they service and sell. The repair division is a high-quality operation and is a great place to have your bike serviced by top professionals.

Our Philosophy

We at Wheel Away Cycle Center believe in being fair, reasonable and honest. What sets us apart in the industry are our longevity and the communication skills we’ve developed over 40 years in the business. We are one of the best at matching the bicycle buyer with the best product.

We treat our customers as we would like to be treated. In 2007, we were voted “Best Bicycle Shop” by readers of the Mercury News and Metro for our top service, selection and attitude.
