Boise is home to some of the finest biking whether it be road biking or mountain biking. And thankfully we have some great bike shops that are all unique in their specialties and services they offer. Let’s have a look at these fine Boise shops.
We’re going to break the Boise bike shops into two categories, road bikes and mountain bikes. While some shops may offer both many are more specific and some are even Triathlon focused.
Boise Mountain Bike Shops
We have two favorite mountain bike shops that are run by real bikers who live and breathe the sport everyday. These first two shops are the place to go for trail info, service, and premium mountain bike sales.
Boise location: 2340 N Bogus Basin Rd, Boise, ID 83702
Eagle location: 238 E State St, Eagle, ID 83616
Reed Cycle has always been our go-to bike shop. Largely because they are a Yeti’s dealer which are what we ride, but more importantly this is an awesome family run bike shop. For over 21 years they have kept the cyclist of the Boise and Eagle area happily rolling along. They offer great service, amazing bikes, and high quality accessories and clothing to get you through even the most epic of mountain bike rides.
Reed Cycles has two locations. The original shop is in the heart of Eagle on main street and their new shop conveniently sits at the base of the Boise foothills just north of Hyde Park.
Joyride Cycles sits in the heart of Hyde Park offering full service, accessories and several high end bike manufacturers including Santa Cruz. The shop is run by some great riders and you’ll often find group rides meeting in front of the shop or catching a beer next door after a ride. Everyone here has extensive knowledge of the local trails and are always more than happy to share the local goods.
They just recently opened a new location in Eagle. It’s so new we haven’t been there yet but I’m sure it’s amazing.
Road Bike Shops In Boise
While I believe the new Joy Ride shop is going to be carrying road bikes below are the shops I’d recommend.
Let’s have a look at a few shops that specialize in high-end road bikes. These shops also tend to have the biggest selection of other types of bikes including children’s bikes, cruisers, gravel bikes, and e-bikes. I’ve also included a Triathlon specific bike shop as well as a special honorable mention.
Address: 5515 W State St, Boise, ID 83703
Phone: (208) 853-1964
George’s Cycles has been a pillar in the Boise cycling community for many years. They have a rich history of supporting youth programs and in general are awesome at supporting anything bicycle related. They have a good variety in the bikes and gear they carry. From entry level children’s bikes to professional level road and mountain you’ll likely find what you’re looking for here.
Address: 6681 Fairview Ave, Boise, ID 83704
Phone: (208) 322-8042
Bob’s Bicycle is another outstanding supporter of all things bike related in the Boise area. At Bob’s you’ll also find a good assortment of bicycles including, electric, children’s, cruisers, road and mountain.
Tri Town Bicycles Boise
Adress: 1510 N 13th St, Boise, ID 83702
Phone: (208) 297-7943
As the name implies, Tri Town Bicycles is your shop for Triathlon gear and bikes but they are also very knowledgeable with high-end road bikes. You’re not going to find cruisers and children’s bikes here but rest assured you’re dealing with real pro’s when it comes to Triathlon and road bikes. They are also the place to go for bike fitting which we both used before our first Ironman. Highly recommended!
Honorable Mention – Boise Bicycle Project
Address: 1027 S Lusk St, Boise, ID 83706
Phone: (208) 429-6520
No Boise bike shop article would be complete without at least mentioning the Boise Bicycle Project. While they are not the place to go for your high-end road or mountain bikes, they are perhaps the best supporter of all things cycling in Boise. The Boise Bicycle Project is a non-profit bike shop with the simple mission of providing bicycles for people who need them, from children to adults. Through monetary donations as well as used bike donations, they provide the community with affordable bikes to help people fall in love with the sport of cycling.
