After 42 years in business, Bob has decided to retire and we are looking for the next family oriented bicycle enthusiast to carry the torch forward into the future…
42 years ago we (Bob & Barbara Molinari) moved to Placerville with $3,000 in our pocket and purchased a small bike shop with a few Univegas, Peugeots, tools, some lawn mowers and chain saws. It has been quite a ride watching the bicycle industry grow. The BMX craze took off, then mountain bikes exploded and the technology that comes with high performance road bikes with its carbon fiber and computers, impressed our customers.
In 1978 we took on the Trek Bicycle Line, a leader in the bike industry. This line and the Bontrager line of accessories has proven to be very successful due to its name recognition.
Through the years our town has maintained cycling clubs, BMX racing and bicycle rodeos at local schools. Just outside our door the community fought hard to make “rails to trails” a reality. There is now 20 miles of bike trails with plans to continue it, along the highway 50 corridor.
We now have our business up for sale ready for the next bike enthusiast to add their creativity. We would suggest that someone with some bike experience consider this as a promising career. Please check out our web site and the many wonderful Yelp comments that have been posted. We are proud of what we have accomplished. We look forward to our retirement and the continuation of Placerville Bike Shop!
