Best Bicycle Store: Placerville Bike Shop

By October 15, 2013

“Family owned, family oriented.” The sentiment is what Placerville Bike Shop prides itself in, and what it aims to continue to provide in service to the community. It’s no wonder owner Bob Molinari and wife Barbara have owned the shop since 1977 and why you’ll find their sons Jeff and Andrew working at the store today. Family is everything to the crew at Placerville Bike Shop, and the offers inside reflect that. The shop has road bikes, mountain bikes, children’s bikes and all the gear to go with them. It even has mechanics on staff who are experts at keeping bikes up and running, and safe, too, with tune-ups, rebuilds, wheel truing and more. The shop’s service to the community doesn’t stop with the sale of a bike, though. Placerville Bike Shop is also an active member of community outreach programs, including collecting donated bikes of all sizes to put them to great use taking kids and adults on rides, while assisting Big Brothers Big Sisters and Friends of the El Dorado Trail.
