Bikes & Beyond was opened by Richard Fencsak in 1988. Richard ran the store until he died in 2008. The shop has been a Trek dealer from that first year and has more recently added Felt, Raleigh, Redline, Torker, Electra, Sun, Detroit Bikes, Framed etc. We also sell, service and ride, Road, mountain, fat-tire, beach cruisers and BMX.
The shop is now co-owned by Richard’s widow Arlene Layton and Scott Lee, and managed by Scott. The employees are Evan and Chad with Peter and Robert helping out when needed. We are open seven days a week, 10-6 Monday-Saturday, 11-5 Sunday.
The shop is unique in being at the crossroads of the Trans-America northern tier route and the Pacific Coast route (part of the Alaska-Patagonia route). We welcome cycle-tourists from all over the world, offer tips on where to stay and where to go in Astoria, and directions to your next destination. If you are beginning or ending your journey in Astoria, you can ship your bike to/from the shop.
