Our Big Secret!

Our big secret is...GIVING. Huh??? At Open Air Bicycles (which has been in Santa Barbara, California for over 40 years!), we love bikes and love people. We exist because we believe that bikes have so much to GIVE.

A bike GIVES adventure and fun, health and fitness, friendships and wonderful memories. Whether you're on a Saturday ride with the family, competing in races, out for long road rides, or just hitting the trails once in a while, a bike is a wonderful thing. Helping GIVE that experience to others is something we love. Working hard to earn your business, trust, and friendship is something we believe in deeply. When you visit us we are honored to spend the time with you.
