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…


Our Story:


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!

What an amazing, wonderful bike shop! This is a family owned and run business, and the Molinari’s are a great bunch of guys. They have so many bikes to chose from, for every kind of cycling... They take great care of your bike if you need it fixed.

This is the best bike shop ever! Jeff helped me pick an awesome bike in my price range without trying to sell me up to something more expensive. I’m not an experienced rider, and Jeff helped me find the right bike for my needs.

Came in before a weekend long ride in Oregon. Got great service on my bike, bought a bike rack and extra gear at great prices. Super friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff ! Family owned and local business. We will be back for sure and highly recommend Placerville bike shop. We live in Folsom but will make the drive to Placerville for this shop due to the great people and service!

I just wanted to share that I am very pleased with a bike purchase I made from this store about a month ago. I needed a new bike for my 6year old boy’s birthday. He rides his bike a lot. He already wore out 2 department store bikes. You get what you pay for. I decided to spend a little more for a higher quality bike and I am really glad I did. This store took the time to expain the features of the kids bikes.

Was on day one of a three day bike trip and needed a quick tune up. Andrew kept the shop open late and waited for me to get there. He took care of what I needed quickly... Excellent customer service.
