Big Enough to Serve You, Small Enough to Know You
Too Chilly For Riding Outdoors?
Beat the Winter!
How about an indoor bike trainer? We have a good stock at all price levels. We have simple ones on which you change resistance by shifting gears; we have fancier ones which can record your power output; and we have really snazzy ones which permit you to race against the world online. No matter what your level, Pedal Power Bike & Ski has you covered.
Of course we have lots of things for winter riding outdoors too. Ever tried studded tires? We have booties, tights, lights, gloves, and winter jerseys, as well the more usual helmets, saddle pads, cycling shorts ... the list goes on and on.
Try the Sports That Make Winter Fun
Acton, Concord, Carlisle, Westford, Chelmsford and Harvard may never look like this, but we do have lots of open areas, and we do get snow. Cross Country (XC) skis can turn any golf course, lawn or backyard into a ski area without the long drive or expensive lift ticket. Snowshoes are even easier to use, and may not even require special boots.
Pedal Power Bike & Ski is uniquely positioned to get you out in the snow now; we've been doing it for over 30 years. We have an extensive stock of Salomon XC skis, boots, bindings, and poles for folks of all ages, sizes, and skill levels. The fit and quality of Salomon XC boots are unparalleled, their bindings give the best support and control in the industry, and their skis are superior. We also have snowshoes from Dion, Garneau, and Whitewoods. Pair that up with winter activewear from Salomon, Garneau, Pearl Izumi, Bontrager, and Specialized.

Unbelievable! We Actually Have Bikes To Sell
New Bikes! 2/10/22
Pedal Power Bike & Ski has continued to receive bikes all winter. While we don't have every size of every model, we do have our largest inventory in over 2 years. The 4 bikes pictured above, are among them. There are lots (in 2022 terms!) of kids bikes, lots of fitness bikes, lots of road bikes, and even a small number of mountain bikes.
That's the good news.
Yes, we know it's Winter, so why buy a bike now? Why not, "Just wait till Spring"? If that's what you're thinking, here comes the bad news. All of these bikes are from backorders. Some were ordered as long ago as May and June of 2020. Virtually no bikes are in open stock at any of our suppliers, and some bikes we order today will not arrive until the late Spring of 2024! (Not a joke, and not a misprint.) We have a deep pipeline of old orders, but even many of those bikes are still months out. And their replacements are, in most cases, over a year away. We also have a great number of bikes pre-sold. So check out our live inventory online, and if you see one that might work for you ... or your kids ... jump on it.

Pedal Power Is Looking for a Few Good Men ... and Women!
As always, we're gearing up for Spring. Play your cards right, and you could find yourself working here ... with US! Wouldn't that be special? We need both technicians and sales folks, and will consider both full and part timers. Friendly enthusiasm is always a must, and a love of cycling would also be a plus.
We offer competitive pay, bonuses, the chance for industry certifications and conferences, vacation and health insurance for full-time employees, and a fun atmosphere. We understand that not everyone has been fortunate enough to have a career as a bike technician, and we've had good success re-training people from other mechanical and engineering fields. So if you're one, come in and see us. We've also been the first paid job for many high school students and we're looking for more of them; but you must be at least 16 years old to work here.
Of course, neither gender nor race is an issue.

Here's the Problem
Many folks have been wondering why it has been so hard to get bikes, components and accessories. The sketch above (which we received from one of our suppliers recently) shows one of the limitations - parts availability. You don't actually have a bike until EVERY part is received.
The other part of the problem is shipping. Click HERE: for a video showing the freight situation on the West Coast.
Our suppliers are telling us now that we have to place our bike orders immediately for 12 - 18 months down the road. We already have many hundreds of bikes on backorder, but anything we order today is 3 to 18 months away. We strongly suggest that you plan ahead too. Seeing us now, will increase your likelihood of getting a bike in the (relatively) near future.
