Best Bicycle Shop: Gregg’s Greenlake Cycle

The people have spoken.

It didn’t always take up the whole block on Woodlawn Avenue, as it does today. In fact, back in 1932 Gregg’s Greenlake Cycle was just one little storefront renting bikes to folks looking to ride around the lake. Since then it’s grown considerably, buying up Aurora Cycle, making a brief foray into motorcycle rentals, and eventually expanding to three locations (also in Bellevue and Alderwood). Aside from being a piece of Seattle history, Gregg’s also provides mechanical support to charity cycling events throughout the year. Everything you could possibly need to get yourself rolling, or pedaling rather, you can find at Gregg’s: new tires, a new bike, or just a quick tune-up. 7007 Woodlawn Ave. N.E., 523-1822
