Laid Back Cycles dates back to the 1970s, when a 9-year-old Mickey started a bike shop in his parent’s outdoor shed. While Mickey’s mother made him clean out the remnants of his first bike shop and sell his collection to a local shop, that didn’t deter him from following his dreams.

Leading Recumbent Shop In Sacramento

Twenty years later Mickey revisited his dream, opening a local bike shop in Folsom, California. Selling more than 400 bikes a year, it was one of the area’s most successful of its kind. After a 10-year hiatus between 2000 and 2010, Mickey was inspired to give the business another go. He refocused his energy on a new trend in human-powered transportation, sport and leisure, opening Northern California’s number one source for recumbent trikes. Most our clients come from the Bay Area and Sacramento, California, but have trikers from all over the US come visit our store.
