Owners Elliot and Daniella Crowder: "We heard about the opportunity to buy a bike shop on the Oregon Coast and decided it would be a great move for our family. We had owned a restaurant in Grants Pass for 7 years and had recently had our first child and were looking for an opportunity to slow down.
We had both grown up in Santa Cruz and missed being by the ocean after living in Grants Pass for 13 years. A bike shop sounded like a great “family friendly” business and combined our knowledge of running a small business with our love of cycling. “The Bike Shop” had been the only steadfast bike shop in Newport for over 20 years and the owners were ready to retire. We bought the business, moved to a better location, doubled the size, changed the name, added Trek, Transition, Klein & Gary Fisher, and became a full service bike shop.
We are both avid cyclist and host weekly shop rides for both mountain and road bikes, are involved in the local cycling club, and do whatever we can to promote cycling as a way of life. If you’re on the Oregon Coast, stop in and say hello to us at Bike Newport in beautiful Newport, Oregon!"
