Mike's Bikes isn't an outdoor shop. It doesn't sell snowboards, kayaks, or sleeping bags. It sells bikes, because its staff knows bikes. In fact, every new hire spends three full days working one-on-one with Mike's Bikes' owners. So when customers walk in, they can expect to ride out on a cycle—whether a mountain, road, leisure, or BMX bike—that's been custom-fitted to their body and tuned to perfection by Wheelsmith-Certified mechanics. And that's how it's been for more than half a century.
Of course, some things have changed since Mike's Bikes' first outpost opened in 1964. Technology, for instance, has improved a bit. Nowadays Certified Master Body Geometry Fit Specialists are always on hand to use a Video Capture system and a new invention called geometry to ensure that your handlebars are the proper width, your seat is at the best height, your position is optimized to your riding goals, and your pedal rotation is as smooth as possible. The result: Mike's Bikes creates people who love to ride.
Castle Rock Climbing School's expert guides eschew climbing walls for the raw stone faces of the Santa Cruz Mountains. PCGI-certified instructors spearhead trips ranging in duration from half a day to four days, spiriting intrepid climbers away for a nature-filled morning or 96 hours away from home to just let the neighbors get all the mail-stealing out of their system. Every guide boasts years of experience leading their wards up and down rocky inclines and is stuffed with local knowledge and teaching prowess. The school outfits climbers with the gear they need, including helmets, harnesses, and shoes, requiring that guests only take care of dressing themselves and deciding what song to yodel from the summit.

He and his staff pass on the 5,000-year-old sport to students ages 5 and older, instilling them with weapon techniques from around the world, along with self-defense and safety awareness skills, flexibility, and fitness benefits.
