West Seattle businesses: Cycle U sets opening date for new location

Cycle University has just announced the opening date for its new location at 3418 Harbor Avenue, where it’s moving because Highline Medical is taking over its Triangle spot (as reported here last August). They expect to open the new, bigger location on April 3rd – read the full announcement ahead:

Seattle’s own Cycle University has announced plans to relocate its West Seattle bicycle retail store and coaching center. The new 5,000 square foot facility is located at 3418 Harbor Avenue SW, fronting directly onto the popular Alki bike trail, and is expected to open its doors to the public on April 3.

Since its founding in 2004 by local pro cyclist Craig Undem, Cycle University has experienced continual, year-after-year growth. In the three years since opening their current West Seattle location at 4550 Fauntleroy Way SW, customer demand has forced them to seek out a larger location. “We’re really excited for this new space,” said owner Craig Undem. “We will have the room to expand our selection of bikes, equipment, and apparel, plus the new indoor cycling center is just great. High ceilings, big windows with views of downtown, and right off of the Alki bike trail — it’s just a great spot for bike lovers.”

This is Cycle University’s second location, with the original store still located in Sand Point. The company originally began as a coaching program for all levels of bike riders, from first-timers to professional racers. By employing seasoned bike professionals, Cycle U formed a reputation as the place to go for trustworthy, expert advice. Since their start in 2004, Cycle U has expanded its services to include: bike fitting, fitness testing, skills clinics, private lessons, InCycle™ indoor riding, indoor winter racing, bootcamps, bike sales, repair, teams and coaching consultations.

In the words of 8-time Cyclocross Series champion and Cycle U coach Kristi Berg, “We love working with all kinds of people. Our goal is to take everything we learned from the school of ‘hard knocks’ racing at a high level and deliver them to you in just the right way to make a dramatic improvement in your cycling. If that means teaching a six-year-old how to safely ride with out training wheels, or a assisting a commuter looking to improve their daily ride, we love to help them out.”
