BIZNOTE: Changes at Cycle U’s West Seattle location

Cycle University‘s West Seattle branch is getting out of the retail business – but you’ll still be able to shop there, as another bike shop takes over the retail space, while Cycle U continues with cycling-fitness classes, bike-fitting, coaching, and bicycle-skill classes. Cycle U proprietor Craig Undem says they’re partnering with Woodinville Bicycle, which will open its second shop at the Cycle U WS location as Westside Bicycles. That’ll be in an expanded retail space on the main floor at 3418 Harbor Ave. SW, while Cycle U’s offerings will be in a remodeled basement studio, starting in early October. In the meantime, Cycle U’s having a “blow-out liquidation sale” of its merchandise. Undem says in the announcement, “I can’t thank the West Seattle community enough for the support and patronage these first 6 years from our start at the Senior Center and the Huling Brothers Jeep location. We always wanted to offer more bikes and accessories but were working with a limited budget. Woodinville Bicycle has been one of the top shops in the region for 10 years and has the resources to really outfit a top level bike shop. This will allow us to focus on what we do best.” Cycle U moved to Harbor Ave. in 2012. (King County Assessor’s Office photo)

    There is still some good stuff at 40% off for today and 50% for tomorrow.
    I’m looking forward to see the larger inventory that woodenville bicycle will bring.

    Serious bummer, I’m a new biker and Craig and Co. have helped me out more than once. I hope this is a true “partnership” venture–and I’ll continue to look for Cycle U’s presence.

    I didn’t know, until I read this just now, that Cycle U offered bicycle skill classes. I’m glad to know it now. Thanks!

    I bought a bike from them when they were at their old location. I’m a short cyclist and they were able to fit me with a great bike.

    I think this is a win-win. Craig is a great person and great coach, and Woodinville Bikes has deep retail bike shop expertise and a great selection of products. I think that the two of them working out of the same location has the makings of a bike enthusiast’s dream shop.

    We are working day and night to get our doors open as soon as possible.

    Thank you for writing about the upcoming venture.
