Our Founder

The Pedal Bicycle Shop was founded in 1972 in Corpus Christi, TX. by Sam Crecelius. Sam always had a fascination with mechanics. He found European bicycles and parts especially interesting, and because no one else in Corpus Christi was handling that type of equipment, Sam wanted to provide that service.

He opened The Pedal expressly to provide European bicycles, parts and accessories to those, like himself, who sought them locally but had nowhere to acquire them in South Texas. Sam's approach has helped The Pedal Bicycle Shop become the leading bicycle retailer in the Corpus Christi, TX area.

About The Pedal Bicycle Shop

Sometimes a bike is a means of recreation or exercise. And sometimes it’s a way of life. A passion. At The Pedal Bicycle Shop, we understand every aspect of bicycles — from the mom and dad who want bikes for the kids to the dedicated racer looking for the most advanced machine on the road. We carry a huge selection, including road bikes, mountain bikes, BMX bikes and family bikes for adults and kids. We also offer a full range of all the biking parts and accessories you will ever need. From beginner to pro, if you want it, we’ve got it.

We know bikes inside and out. For us, they are a way of life. So you can always count on the knowledgeable professionals who will greet you with a smile at The Pedal Bicycle Shop.

Our Mission

People say you can't please everyone all the time. Well, we are making it our mission to try. When asked what sets us apart from other bike shops we say "it's our service". While we always try to offer the best prices we can, we think there's great value in good service. Not only do we want you, our customers, to have a pleasant shopping experience, we want you to have an enjoyable riding experience as well. To do this, it's important that your bike operates and fits you well, which is why each bicycle is assembled with the utmost care.
