Following a major remodel, Alpine Bike Works has reopened as a Giant Partner Store. This is the 3rd major change in as many years for this rapidly growing bike shop. Alpine Bike Works now stocks 80% of it’s floor space with Giant and Liv products in addition to a nice selection of bikes by Yeti and Ibis. Additionally, they offer Felt, Foes Racing and KHS bicycles as well.
Alpine Bike Works opened in 2015 in a 1500 sq ft location on Route 4 in Killington, just a short distance from the Killington Access Road. In 2017, they moved to the new larger location at the base of the Killington Access Road that they currently occupy now. The current location is almost twice the size of their original store. In addition to bike sales and service, Alpine Bike Works is also home to Fat Bike Vermont fat bike rentals and Killington Ski Bike ski bike rentals.
Shop owner, Tony Accurso says, “We partnered with Giant because we believe they offer the best in product engineering and design, dealer support and dealer product channels which in turn allow us to provide the best products, support and experience to our customers.” Since partnering with Giant shortly after they opened, Alpine Bike Works has seen double digit growth and expects this trend to continue as the area continues to grow into one of the top cycling destinations in Vermont.
Besides being located at the intersection of two major road cycling and bicycle touring routes – the Crossroads of Vermont Byway and the Scenic Route 100 Byway, Alpine Bike Works is located at the crossroads of most major mountain biking trails in the region. The lifts at Killington Resort are just a few miles south of the shop. There are 5 miles of beginner to intermediate cross country trails less than 2 miles north on Route 100 at the Sherburne Trails. Drive just a little further north on Route 100 and you are at the more challenging Green Mountain Trails in Pittsfield. And just a 20-minute drive east or west you can be riding Woodstock or Pine Hill Park Rutland, respectively.
