Bike Peddler Cycling & Fitness is an established retailer with more than forty years in Greeley, Colorado. The business was founded by Clyde Lane, who moved from Grand Junction, Colorado, to start his own family business in bicycles and bicycling accessories during the late 1960’s.
In 1982, Bike Peddler was sold to Bill and Nancy Waller. During Bill and Nancy’s ownership they focused on providing high quality bicycles and exceptional customer service. During their ownership, Bill Waller started to market a cyclist mirror called Take a Look Mirror. They built a respectable reputation as Greeley’s best bicycle shop that continues today.
In 1990, Bill and Nancy decided to sell their business to a regional bicycle chain, Cycle Logic. Unfortunately, Cycle Logic developed financial difficulties. In 1995, Bill and Nancy repurchased the troubled store in hopes of continuing to provide Greeley with the excellent retail bicycle experience that Bike Peddler had become known for. Bill and Nancy achieved their goal and Bike Peddler had again become the best bicycle retailer in the community. This is obvious in the commendations the store has received.
In 1996 and 1997,Trek Bicycle Corporation honored the Bike Peddler with “The Award of Excellence” and “The Award for Outstanding Achievement” for the growth of Trek products. Then in 1999 Velo Business Magazine ranked the Bike Peddler as one of the top 100 bicycle retail stores in the nation. The same year the Chicago Associated Bicycle Dealers Association awarded the Bike Peddler as North America’s Best Dealer Bill and Nancy Waller recruited and hired Andy Greenberg in the Spring of 1997.
While working for Bill and Nancy, Andy thrived in acquiring knowledge about Bicycles, Bicycle Repair and Services, Bicycle Fitting, and Bicycling Industry. After graduating with a Bachelor in Dietetics from University of Northern Colorado (UNC is a local College), Andy went to work for Trek Bicycle Corporation, the number one Bicycle Manufacturer in the U.S. At Trek, Andy achieved his dream of becoming a Territory Manager in only a year. After three years at Trek, he purchased Bike Peddler in May of 2001. His goal for Bike Peddler Cycling & Fitness is to continue the exceptional customer service and to grow with the expanding Greeley community and the surrounding areas.
