Eugene bike shop directory

Note: I have not been diligent about keeping this up to date and therefore have removed hours as well as shops I know have closed. I’m surely missing some newer ones. But the following are certainly old standbys in Eugene.

Arriving by Bike

  • Address/phone: 2705 Willamette St. / 541-484-5410
  • Website: arrivingbybike.com
  • About: Specializes in cycling-as-transportation — that is, commuting gear, freight bikes, cargo bikes, panniers, etc. I have made a couple of big-ticket purchases here, including an Xtracycle kit and some rain gear. Nice shop, helpful people.

Blue Heron Bicycles

  • Address/phone: 877 E. 13th Ave. / 541-343-2488
  • Website: www.bicycleshopeugene.com
  • About: I always thought of Blue Heron as just “that campus bike shop.” I don’t really know what I meant by that, but I’ve been in there a couple of times lately and have been greeted by super friendly and helpful employees. They say they specialize in the repair of vintage bikes. I’ve never used that service, but judging by the numbers of retro bikes I see rolling around campus, I don’t doubt this.

Eugene Bicycle Works

  • Address/phone: 455 W. First Ave. / 541-683-3397
  • Website: www.catoregon.org/?page_id=15
  • About: This isn’t a traditional bike shop. It’s part of a nonprofit called the Center for Appropriate Transport. If you like to work on your own bike but don’t have tools, you can rent space at CAT by the hour and use their bike stands and tools — and also get help from staff. They also sell all manner of used parts — which is pretty much self-serve. If you are the kind of person who likes clawing through 5-gallon buckets full of used brake levers, this is the place for you. You might find what you need, you might not. If you do, the price will be right. They also sell a small selection of new components, lower end stuff that is very reasonably priced. Don’t be in a hurry if you go in here. Not only might it take you a while to find what you’re looking for, but the staff is often busy helping people work on bikes. They aren’t always in a hurry to come over and help you pay and check out. On the other hand, I think the staff here is mostly volunteer, so I’m not going to make a big deal about it.

Hutch’s Bicycle Store

  • Address/phone: 960 Charnelton St. / 541-345-7521; there’s a Springfield Hutch’s, too: 2100 Main St. / 541-741-2453
  • Website: hutchsbicycleseugene.wordpress.com
  • About: Hutch’s in Eugene is my regular go-to store for routine stuff like inner tubes, tires, a new helmet I bought recently, etc. It’s more or less on my commute and it’s usually open when I’m passing by in the morning. Folks in the shop have always been helpful.

Life Cycle Bike Shop

  • Address/phone: 1733 Pearl St. / 541-686-2994
  • Website: www.lifecyclebikeshop.com
  • Hours: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday; closed Sunday
  • About: I’ve only been in once or twice, as the hours don’t jibe well with my schedule. But I know a couple of people who have bought bikes at Life Cycle and they say they had a great experience with the staff there.

Paul’s Bicycle Way of Life

  • Address/phone: Four locations —
    1. 2480 Alder St. / 541-342-6155
    2. 566 Charnelton St.
  • Website: bicycleway.com

    Oh.. and your link to the Bike Portland blog seems to be incorrect

  2. Hi there, there is also Wheelworks on W 11th. A great store with a nice selection of high end (road and other) bikes (Bianchi and Focus) and great service. I bought my Bianchi there. Bill, the owner, and his cohort go cycling every Saturday morning at 8 am. Meet at the store.

  3. Still feeling New to Eugene / Springfield Area. Want information about cycling and sales and repairs.
    I am interested in learning more about newer trikes, namely tadpoles. I have a Sun recumbent bike, yet I want.a new trike. I am finding, that I buy the frame, then search around to get things to make it a trike. What do you know about NuVinci?

  4. I am a new resident to Eugene and am looking to get involved with anything to do with bikes. My last 30 years have been spent in rural NM which is not real bike friendly. Currently i am not a savvy biker but hope to change that. I own a 25 year-old Scott which is in fairly good shape but i need minor accessories (fenders, reflectors, night-use stuff, etc.). I also want to find a setting to learn about repair. And maybe a riding group, though my bike is probably in better shape than i am. Any info/suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

  5. You know, I bought my bicycle from Blue Heron, which I used to back back and forth (4 miles each way) to school. The bike was great. And yellow, which I loved. They were super nice. And when someone stole it, I called and they were nice enough to look up my registration number so I could give it to EPD (who later recovered it). When I bought my bike they offered a free 6-month tune-up, which I thought was a great service. I have to say, I was really happy with them, and would purchase a bike from them again.
