Gold Country Cyclery was founded and is still operated by tandem enthusiasts, Rick and Ann Steele. Rick's fascination with tandem bicycles began before he had a willing stoker, but as soon as his son was old enough to climb aboard with a child stoker kit, that fascination became a love of all things tandem. When Rick met Ann, she hadn't ridden a bicycle since college days, but one ride on the American River Bike Trail was all it took to make her his permanent tandem stoker.
The Steele's started the area's first tandem club, "Gold Country Tandem Club" before opening the tandem bike shop and were amazed at the number of enthusiasts in the Sacramento, California area who could benefit from expert service and advice. Seeing the potential, a bike shop was born!
To the new customer, Rick says-tandems
"Ann & I still ride tandems almost exclusively and enjoy the benefits and camraderie of riding together. Let us help you select a tandem that best meets your requirements and budget.
We carry a full line of tandems to meet most everyone's budget; from entry level KHS models, to premium tandems from CalfeeDesign, Co-Motion, DaVinci, and Paketa. Select our "Bikes" page from the menu on the Left for more details and pricing of the tandems we carry. Click on the "Used/Specials" page from the menu on the left for deals on close-outs, demos, used tandems.
Purchasing a new tandem bicycle is an investment and one we're sure will give you many years of enjoyment. Test riding is an important part of the purchasing process and even experienced riders can benefit from expert instruction and a properly fitted tandem. When needed, we can provide the necessary training to help make your first ride both fun and safe. To ensure that we can give you the personal attention that test rides require, we prefer to do tandem test rides by appointment, so please call or send an email in advance to set-up an appointment."
