ABOUT

 
Harley and Sam first met in a local Denver bike shop where Harley was working and Sam was a customer. They quickly hit it off and became riding buddies as well as good friends. When the timing was right, the two decided to team up and open their own bike shop in Denver that followed their unique vision. Harley and Sam’s passion for cycling, their choice to carry only premium, cutting-edge bikes and products, and their commitment to customer service, is what makes Base Camp Cyclery the top local bike shop in South Denver.
