Refried Cycles: A Legacy of Cycling Passion

Nestled in the lively beat of San Francisco’s Castro area, Refried Cycles started up as more than a shop; it was a beacon for bicycle aficionados from every avenue of life. Aubrey, who was super excited about cycling, kicked off this venture not just to sell bikes but to build a community. This ex-bike messenger’s passion attracted cyclists of all levels—from the daily commuter to the expert racer, Refried Cycles was their home away from home.

This wasn’t just about sales; it was about soul. With a mix of cool bikes from the ’80s and ’90s, and loads of spare parts, Refried Cycles was a gold mine for both the nostalgic and the down-to-earth rider. But it was coolest as a chill spot, a place where folks gathered, got smart, and bigged up the biking life through group rides, happenings, and hangouts. The expertise demonstrated in our shop was not just good; it was legendary. Our fixers weren’t just mechanics; they were guardians of cycling tradition, all about the art of perfecting every gear, every ride.

The flip of 2017 marked the time when Refried Cycles had to shut the shop, hit by the non-stop change of online shopping and a city that kept shifting. Yet, the spirit? Indomitable. Today, the legacy endures through Heyden Camden’s tireless work, echoing the ethos of Refried Cycles through insightful blogs and an unwavering dedication to the cycling community.
