What Bike Town would be complete without great cycling shops? We might be a small town, but our four cycling shops show that bicycling is firmly engrained in our community. Our friendly Western hospitality isn’t limited to the slopes — at our locally owned shops you’ll find friendly service, high performance gear and local advice to get you out the trail or road.
Steamboat Ski and Bike Kare
With locations downtown on the corner of 5th Street and Lincoln Avenue and at the Steamboat Ski Area, Steamboat Ski and Bike Kare offers equipment for riding any season, with top ski and bike brands. A former Jackson, Wyoming native, owner Harry Martin understands mountain towns and service—with his team earning ‘Best of the Boat’ honors the last two years. The service-orientated nature of Ski and Bike Kare carries through from their seasoned mechanics to their commitment to community events like sponsorship of the Town Challenge Mountain Bike Series, Steamboat Stage Race and Bike to Work Week.
