At Breaking Away Bicycles, we specialize in making cycling easy. Rich, our head mechanic and bike guru, has been working on bikes since before most of our other employees were born, and has been UBI  certified since the shop was founded. He'll get your daughter's 12' bike rolling like a dream, and your race whip rolling faster than ever.

We rent, demo, and sell all the bikes you would need in Marin. Mountain? Check! Road? We'll have you in more Spandex than you can shake a chain at. Commute? Oh yeah, even a machine that will transport you, all the little ones, and the dog in comfort and style unsurpassed by even the coolest mini-vans.

about us

Established in 2005, Breaking Away Bicycles was built on a greasy handshake and a shared passion for getting people outside. Donna started the shop after 19 years managing Angel Island, watching kids and adults enjoy riding around the beautiful landscape. She decided to leave the corporate world in order to help more folks get on bikes. 

Rich joined the team shortly thereafter and dedicated his life to being constantly covered in grease and memorizing Shimano part numbers. He'll get you rolling no matter what.
