The Path Bike Shop was featured in the February/March 2012 issue of Bicycle Dealer Magazine. Not only did we get a nice feature, which included an interview with The Path Bike Shop owner Tani Walling, but we also made the cover!
The article talks about the humble beginnings of the shop, the services we offer, and about how we are able to still be in business in a tough economic time where local bike shops are struggling and online bicycle retailers are thriving.
Our own Darin "Crash" Maxwell was featured on the Kona Bicycles website! He talked to Kona about his annual Push-A-Kona ride, now in it's 8th year. Here's the article from Kona.
Darrin Maxwell from Orange County’s The Path Bike Shop organizes a hard core backcountry ride every year called Push-a-Kona. This is his 8th year doing it. It’s a treacherous route, has a bike weight limit (long travel bikes only) has a great turn out and a lot of involvement. Here’s an explanation of the motivation behind the event from the man himself. This year’s Push-A-Kona goes December 3rd. And oh yeah, you’re allowed to NOT ride a Kona, if you have to.
The Path Bike Shop has been named the BEST Bike Shop on the CityVoter OC HOTLIST for 2011! Thanks for keeping us #1 on the OC Hotlist for three straight years. We couldn't make it happen without all our fantastic customers.

Efforts to welcome and support bicycling can be as simple as offering secure bike parking or organized rides to get folks together on bikes. Businesses across the country are seeing that there is a good return on investment in promoting bicycling in the workplace including improved morale and health, reduced parking costs and promoting a healthy and sustainable lifestyle to customers and employees.
