Kirk's Bike Shop, Inc. was founded by Kirk and Trudie Newell, husband and wife. Finding it difficult to enjoy bike rides together, as former bike racer Kirk kept sprinting ahead and then coming back to "see how she was doing", they bought a Jack Taylor tandem in the summer of 1977. This allowed Trudie to "get up to speed" with road riding and kept the couple together on their weekly rides. Through the past 30 years of raising their two boys, Dustin and Garret, and watching their business grow, they continued to ride the bike together. Shortly after the tragic death of their oldest son, Dustin, in September of 2000, they bought a Rans Screamer recumbent tandem and began training in earnest for a bicycle trip to Europe where Dustin had spent his junior year in college. They planned to visit the places and people that their son had known during his last year of life. After the trip, they began putting more and more miles on the bike and began riding with members of tandem clubs in Los Angeles and San Diego that they had met during their journey. Today, they continue to ride with these clubs, spreading the "gospel" of recumbent, tandem and Bike Friday folding bike riding to experts and novice riders alike.
At Kirk's Bike Shop we pride ourselves on providing a selection of recumbent bikes, tandems, and Bike Friday folding bikes that you can actually see and test-ride. We have in stock bikes and recumbent bikes from Rans, Lightning, HP Velotechnik, Bike Friday, Raleigh, Electra, Fuji, Diamondback, and KHS. We are located in Ramona, a small town in the foothills of San Diego County's Cuyamaca Mountains. A test ride beginning at our store takes you quickly onto lightly-traveled country roads and challenging fire trails where you can get the full benefit of your test-ride experience (plus enjoy a ride in the country).
