Our History

The Bicycle Shop is proud to offer our customers the best brands of bicycles, accessories and service in the Fayetteville/Cumberland County area of North Carolina. We have been a bicycle shop since 1970. Originally situated across from Eutaw Shopping Center on Bragg Boulevard, we moved in 2002 to our new location at 502 North McPherson Church Rd. We have always strived for excellence in our customer service, matching our customers with the best bikes for their needs as well as servicing them after the sale. We are proud to be your source for Trek, Gary Fisher, Specialized, and MirraCo BMX bicycles and we carry the best accessories in the indurstry as well.

Our accessory line is a long list of the best components in the industry. Bontrager components leads the way for us with everything from their wheels and saddles to shoes and cycling apparel. We also carry a considerable number of Specialized, Shimano, Look, Thule, Saris, Crank Brothers, Park Tools, Bell, Giro, Topeak to name a few.

Our service department is open during regular business hours and can fix from a simple flat tire to a complete overhaul of bearings and drive trains. We strive for a timely turn around on our repairs to make sure our customers are spending more time on the bike than off. We offer free 30-day and 90-day service with every new bicycle we sell and promise a 24 hour or quicker turn around for those services. We can provide same day service for our customers by setting appointments.

Martyn Gibson: Owner
Marty started working for The Bicycle Shop under its previous owner, Bob Meyers, after serving in the U.S. Army. Marty has an extensive history with cycling in North Carolina. He was an integral member of the Upper Cape Fear Cyclists and has helped support the cycling clubs of Fayetteville throughout the years. He has ridden and finished the Assault on Mount Mitchell twice. He purchased the business in 1993 and has since taken the shop from the "little hole in the wall" to the establishment it is today.
He admittedly doesn't ride as much as he used to, but you may still catch him rolling through the back roads of Eastover from time to time.

Chris has been with the shop for over 10 years with an additional 10 years prior bicycle sales and service experience. His racing began at 10 years of age with BMX and grew into mountain bike racing as an adult. He created the shop’s BMX team and continues to recruit new talent for the growing BMX scene.
