About five years ago, Storm Cycles became the first year-round bike shop in Kimball Junction. The locals behind the shop include Todd Henneman, fresh off a 25-year tenure at JANS, and husband-and-wife team Juan Patterson and Lauri Bilawa. Juan also comes from a lifelong career working with bikes, and originally moved to Park City with Lauri for the skiing.

Storm Cycles is known for its friendly, approachable service techs, and carrying Pivot, Yeti, and Trek bikes. Since 2014, it’s also been voted one of the top three bike shops in Park City by Park City’s Best. And this spring (the owners are aiming for end-March), Storm Cycles will move to a bigger retail space in Newpark by the new Hearth & Hill restaurant. We chatted with co-owner Lauri to learn more about Storm Cycles.

Choose Park City: Which bikes are you most excited about right now?

Lauri Bilawa: You know, the electric bikes are really taking off right now. Trek makes every kind of electric bike you can think of—even electric townies. We alo offer electric bike demos.

What are your favorite trails to ride in Park City?

We love Wasatch Crest Trail. Other shop favorites include Flying Dog, Jenni’s on Park City Mountain, and Flagstaff Loop.

What’s one thing about Storm Cycles that people might not know?

We rent fat bikes in the winter. Every year, fat biking gets a little more popular. Also, we’ll apply two days worth of demos toward your purchase of the bike.

What about this summer? Anything happening besides the big move?

We do vendor bike demos. You get to ride the bikes free! Check in with us at the shop, online, or on Facebook to find out when we’ll be doing these demos.

If you subscribe to my newsletter, you can take advantage of a special promo that I partnered with Storm Cycles to offer in January and February. Not a subscriber? Contact me and I’ll be happy to send you the promo code.
