Mad Dog Cycles Orem began life in 1989 as Swens Schwinn Cyclery as part of a 7-store chain. In 1993, the Provo, Orem, and American Fork locations were purchased by Tim Williams and the name was changed to “The Bike Peddler.”
Slowly over the next six years, Tim sold off three stores and in the Summer of 1997, Stephen Miles purchased the Orem location at which point the name was changed to Mad Dog Cycles. With a new vision, the store turned direction 180-degrees. With an increased focus on customer service, the shop garnered a reputation for having experienced and enthusiastic employees, excellent bike brands and the ability to maximize its modest resources. Randy Gibb took over management duties early in 1998 and later accepted the challenging opportunity to purchase the store from Stephen in 2001 at the age of 21.
In 2015, the building located at 350 N Orem Boulevard was purchased and the Orem store was relocated in November into its new, permanent location.
Today, Mad Dog Cycles continues to focus on our customer service-oriented roots to better serve our local cycling community through excellent hospitality, a great staff and community-supporting efforts.
