Our Story

Ride-A-Bike has been serving cyclists and promoting cycling in North Carolina since 1981. We are proud to be one of the oldest bicycle shops in the entire state! In 2015 we moved from our original shop in Lincolnton NC to our new and improved, larger location in downtown Gastonia NC. Leaving Lincolnton was not an easy decision, but we had an opportunity we couldn’t ignore. Ride-A-Bike supports all types of cyclists by providing quality service and products. We stock new bicycles from Marin, Jamis, and Dahon. Other niche brands are available through special order. Ride-A-Bike has a full-service repair department with experienced mechanics to keep your bicycles in peak condition at competitive rates. Stop by our store in downtown Gastonia, NC at 140 E Main Avenue or give us a call (877-574-0656). We look forward to seeing you in person!

  • Checked out this bike shop on a recommendation from a coworker. I was looking to purchase my first mountain bike and so glad I went here. I walked in and spent almost an hour talking with the owner, never once did I feel like he was selling me a bike….  instead, it felt like he was educating me on the hobby. I didn’t hesitate to buy a bike that day. Looking forward to breaking in my new bike and taking it back in for the first tube up!

  • I can’t say enough about the quality of customer service. All the guys were really friendly and helpful. We talked for a few minutes about some new trails and my new petals for my bike. I’ll never take my bike anywhere else. Thank you guys

  • I wanted to personally thank both Brantley and Brad for their time and patience with me to make sure that I got the bicycle that I wanted and fit my needs perfectly! I immediately took my new customized Marin B17 to the trail and it rode like a Cadillac Monster Truck! I Love my new whip boys! Thank you so much!

  • Can’t say enough good things about this shop or the dudes who run the show. The space itself has a great atmosphere, right in the heart of downtown. Customer service is the perfect blend of professional and personable, they want to get you on the perfect bike to fit your size, budget, and riding demands. Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned veteran, stop in and let these guys get you fixed up, fitted, and back in the saddle in no time.

  • I bought a new bike here and couldn’t be happier. I went to two other bike shops first (since I live in Charlotte) and have to say the staff here were the most friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth the drive to Gastonia to get what I wanted and deal with people that deserve my business. I love my new Dahon!
