The Peddler Bike Shop was established in 1971 by Dan Lamontagne after he graduated from Christian Brothers College. He was riding the wave of Eddy Merckx who was winning a lot of races at the time. Dan started his business with a bunch of Raleigh bicycles brought down from Chicopee, Massachusetts from his uncle's shop. The VW Microbus broke down three times on its trek from the north to the original shop on 3573 Southern Avenue.

Hal Mabray came to the Peddler in 1986 as an apprentice mechanic, became a manager within a year and eventually bought the business in 1990. The Peddler has moved its University of Memphis store the second time in 40 years to a totally remodeled and state of art location on Walker Avenue inside a repurposed YMCA swimming pool building. A Germantown location has grown to 4,000 sq. ft. and Peddler has opened a third store in Southaven, MS

Peddler has been voted Best Bike Shop in Memphis for 9 straight years because we believe in bikes. Our 5 certified fit technicians have over 40 years of combined experience on road, tri, mountain, touring, and commuting bicycles. The service techs in our three stores can claim a similar amount of experience performing every task imaginable on every variety of bike imaginable (and one time, there was even this weird rickshaw thing that had been brought over from Indonesia...). From the simplest flat fix all the way to suspension work and expert wheel-building, the Peddler can fix whatever may ail your bike of any make or model.

The Peddler Bike Shop proudly lends support to 4 race teams, 4 cycling clubs, and 2 bicycle cooperatives and we have supplied the University of Memphis with over 50 rental bikes.

But we're not just here for the hardcore riders; we have families of our own so we know the simple joy of a nice relaxing family ride on the bike path with the kids. We want our children to grow up in cycling friendly communities.

As a result of our devotion to helping the Mid-South become more cycling-friendly, we support and have been recognized by organizations like Livable Memphis, Walk/Bike Memphis, Meritan, American Diabetes Association, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, The Junior League of Memphis, St. Jude, and even Tennessee State Senators. We have been to Washington, D.C. to discuss with our State Representatives the importance of bicycling in our local, regional and state economies. Hal Mabray is also on the People for Bikes Retail Advisory Committee.

So no matter what kind of riding you and your family want to do, come talk to the Peddler Bike Shop family and we'll help you find the best bikes and gear available.
