Swan Creek Demo Day 2014

Help us kick off the summer at the best place to ride a mountain bike in Tacoma!

Free mountain bike demos at Swan Creek Park on June 8th.

Tacoma Bike and Rocky Mountain Bicycles are hosting a demo day at the new Swan Creek trails.  The Rocky mountain demo truck will be filled with mountain bikes for anyone who shows up. Beginners and experts are welcome, staff from Tacoma Bike and Rocky Mountain will be on hand to help and answer questions. This event is a perfect chance for anyone who hasn’t ridden Swan Creek to give it a try with the best bikes around.

Swan Creek Park has the newest, best-built mountain bike only trails in Tacoma, thanks to the partnership between Evergreen MTB Alliance and Metro Parks.  Hundreds of volunteer hours went into building the trails and we’re happy to be hosting one of the first big events since the grand opening.

We’re asking folks to RSVP to reserve bikes through Tacoma Bike by calling (253) 272-1351.

Do you know a kid who rides a bike?

Take a quiet moment to watch this great video from University Place TV with them. We were delighted to be a part of its making.

Thank you, Dome District. Hello 6th Ave.

After nearly 5 years in the Dome District, Tacoma Bike is moving house. On Dec 24th we’ll say ‘Goodbye’ to the Dome District and turn the lights off at our Puyallup Ave store for the last time at 4pm. For those looking for some great reductions, hurry down this weekend – we’re making deals to clear out space in the Dome store and Proctor.

Dec 26th we’ll be operating wholly from Proctor while we prepare our new 6th Ave store. Come visit us up there until you hear further details.

Why the change of locations?

We (Mike and Deb Brown) are buying the building at 3010/3012 6th Ave. We have a wonderful opportunity to invest in Tacoma, our home for the past 29 years. We’ll be next door to the Tacoma Food Co-Op where many of our customer already shop. For those that dine at Primo Grill we’ll be 2 blocks west.

Get in early this weekend to make the most of our moving sale!

It is an exciting and busy time for us. We’d like to thank you all for your ongoing support of Tacoma Bike and look forward to the next chapter in the story.

Big News for 2013/14

After nearly 5 years in the Dome District, Tacoma Bike is moving house.

The Puyallup Ave store will be wound down December 24th and we will open the doors of 3012 6th Ave, next to the Tacoma Food Co-op, in January 2014. The interim period will see us located solely at Proctor while we get the new location ready.

It is an exciting and busy time for us. We’d like to thank you all for your ongoing support of Tacoma Bike and hope you’ll enjoy the store-wide sale we have over the next few months to get ready for the move. Sale prices are good Downtown and at the Proctor store with the largest selection Downtown.

We’re all a little Nutty!
