Goose Creek Cycle started in 2005 as a side project in the basement of an old building overlooking Little Goose Creek. Driven by a pure passion for riding it has grown into two shops in LaGrange and Louisville, KY.
Both shops have a full service department, and extensive inventories from top brands like Specialized, Niner, KHS and IBIS. We are more than just the place you come when you need a repair. We are the place where people come together and share a passion.

"Each bike has a story. What makes a bike truly yours is not the purchase of the bike but the experiences you have with it. Each scratch in the frame, each upgrade, each worn out part comes with a story that you share with your bike. So on the day when you finally look at your bike and see not a collection of parts and pieces, but a collection of stories and experiences, that is the day you know the bike is truly yours. As your mechanic I am honored to be part of that experience"

Ever have one of those crazy bike ideas like "hey, I want to ride a 100 mile ride in the middle of a snowy night in December just to see if I can" or "Wouldn't it be cool to mount gigantic speakers from the 80's on my fat bike and ride in with the guys racing Ironman"? Don't worry, you are not alone. We all have those thoughts, just Pete in crazy enough to actually do them. So whatever your idea, Pete can give you pointers because he has probably already done it.
Also as a certified fit technician and connoisseur of obscure bike parts, Pete can help you make sure not only that your bike is unique to you, but fits you like a glove.
Head Shop Ninja - LaGrange
The man with WAY too many road miles under his belt. With two bids at the National 24 Hour Challenge and countless starts in local road races, Kyle is our resident tech geek. While he won't admit to actually having a motor in his bike, it is actually a little suspicions how savvy he is with electronics. So if you have a question about electronic shifting, power meters, online racing or power trainers, Kyle has probably owned and used it.
Also if you ordered a custom bike from the shop. You should know that Kyle is most likely the one who built it. Even if you picked it up at Westport Road.
After years of urban riding and wrenching at Falls City Bikeworks, we stole Sam and put her on a race bike (or two or three) and the rest is history. If she is not elbow deep in grease in the service department she is out getting ready for whatever race is next. Seriously, whatever race. It doesn't matter if it has a start line and a finish line, it probably also had a podium and she is usually on it.
So if you need to get your bike ready to hit the road or just need some pointers on how to get into the local race scene, Sam is the one to come see.
When we say "Outside Rep" we mean he is probably outside riding. Coming from a motorcycle racing background, Shaun has spent the last few years chasing the perfect ride on the perfect trail. Want to know what the latest and greatest components to come down the pike are? Shaun is probably out there testing them right now and reporting back to us to let us know which ones live up to the hype and which ones to leave on the shelf.
If you are looking for a custom or semi custom build on your perfect ride, Shaun is the one to put it together for you.
The kid makes a mean cup of coffee. We know this because for the past few years we would go visit him at La Grange Coffee Roasters when we were on break. In turn when he got off of work he would load up his bike and come visit us. No one really remembers when we put him on payroll. In truth he may have just hacked the computer when we weren't looking, but it only makes sense, anyone who spends this much time in the bike shop ought to get paid for it.
If you want to hit some fun local trails or talk free ride bike, Noah is you guy to follow.
