Press Release

Share Post:

Richmond, California (October 21, 2021) — Cleary Bikes, specialty kids’ bikes manufacturer, has announced that Mike’s Bikes, a well-known California retailer, will carry Cleary’s entire line.

Mike’s Bikes offers Cleary’s well-designed, durable children’s bicycles in its twelve stores in Petaluma, San Rafael, Sausalito, San Francisco, Berkeley, Palo Alto, Los Gatos, Sacramento, Walnut Creek, San Jose, Pleasanton, and Folsom

“Cleary Bikes bolsters our line-up of kids bikes with freewheel bikes for toddlers, 24″ hardtails for mountain groms, and everything in between. Cleary has been designing lightweight kids bikes for years right in our own backyard in Northern California. The partnership between our two brands is a natural fit,” says Ken Martin, Mike’s Bikes CEO.

Established in 2014, Cleary believes in the bicycle as an empowering tool for children to develop balance, self-confidence, physical fitness and independence. To do so, kids need to be comfortable on their bikes, and the bikes need to be lightweight, durable and capable. Cleary has mastered this design and both Mike’s Bikes and Cleary share the same mission: more kids on bikes. 

“Our entire team is thrilled to have Cleary in Mike’s Bikes stores. Mike’s Bikes is a pillar in the retail cycling community and their customer service and team are excellent. We’re proud of the partnership,” says Sean Kneale, Cleary Bikes National Sales Manager.

About Cleary Bikes:

Cleary designs bikes to give kids the most boundless possible riding experience. No dumbed-down adult bikes. No gimmicky playthings. Cleary bikes are crafted so kids feel that their rig was made just for them. Cleary understands the importance of learning  how to win with kids —before, during and after they get on a bike; the heightened emotions, the thrills of discovery, the joy of accomplishment, the unbridled pride, the cheek-to-cheek smile. When a child is ready to take flight on two wheels, Cleary has the bike to make it happen. Designed for kids. Built for adventure.

About MIke’s Bikes:

Mike’s Bikes was founded in 1964 as one of Marin County’s very first Schwinn shops. It is rumored that our store in San Rafael was home to some of the first mountain bikes in the country. Cycling has changed dramatically as the decades have rolled by, but Mike’s Bikes has never wavered from their total dedication to the sport.

Today, Mike’s Bikes is a growing family of bike shops, all with a singular purpose – to get as many people on bikes as possible.
