Outstanding SGV Business - Around the Cycle
Physically located in northwest Pasadena, Around the Cycle was founded by a passionate team of "recyclists" with a simple concept: help busy people with too much stuff pass some of those items forward, and make a little money in the process. The new and used bike shop, which does the majority of its business online via a simple consignment model, carries the largest inventory of used bikes and gear in Southern California.
Over the past five years the team has helped thousands of people find new homes for their cycling gear. In the process they’ve elevated the utility of “reuse” in a bicycling industry that pushes the need for the latest, greatest technology, and helped lower barriers to cycling by making it more affordable, accessible and sustainable.
The focus of this group of cyclists, triathletes and lovers of the outdoors remains making it as easy and valuable as possible for people to buy, sell and repair their bikes and gear, so they can be freed up to focus on the more important things in life.
