The Best Bike Shops Around Traverse City

Since 1998, The Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation Trails nonprofit has built and maintained over 60 miles of trails and bikeways in the Traverse region. Traverse City was named one of the top small town travel destinations in the US in 2009, and it is a great place to visit that’s away from the city. With plenty of freshwater beaches, vineyards, and forest areas, Traverse City is also a fun place to pick up new wheels to explore the city on. So, whether you’re a Traverse City local or an honorary-local, start exploring your city on a bike after visiting one of these shops.
