Granada Cyclery was purchased by Ken, the current owner, in 1978. The reason for the name “Granada Cyclery” is because changing the name at that time was too expensive, so the shop name remained. Our first location was on Fifth Street between 1978 and 1982. It was a small but good start. After that, we moved to First Capitol Street and stayed there until 1990. After this location, we moved again to St. Andrews plaza and were there for fifteen years! During these fifteen years we also had another location at Olive and a store named “Bicycle Basics” in O’Fallon. We finally decided to consolidate the shops and moved to our current location in 2005, purchasing the land and building our new and current facility. We plan to stay in this location and desire to continue to grow cycling in our community!
“We are a group of people who love bicycles! We do it because we like to help people change their lives and lead a healthy/active lifestyle.”
A Truly Family Owned Business:
Here at Granada every one of Ken and Kim’s children have worked at the shop. Currently the general manager as well as two of the salesmen are family members and most of the employees are long time customers and close family friends. Our staff consists of Iron Man finishers to Katy Trail causal bike riders. We like the atmosphere and comradery that family brings. That is also why we are a non-commission store; our focus is to get you on the correct bicycle for your needs… not the most expensive for our own benefit! Our adult bikes range from the $400s all the way to over $12,000- from a comfort bike to a tri-bike, we are positive that we have what you need.
