Our bike shop was first officially opened on the 1st of August 1992 and we called it the „Veloschöpfli Zürcher“.

This was following 2 years of experience of epairing and selling bikes in the former shoe storage shed belonging to Emil and Anna Zürcher. In the year 2005 it was finally time – we were able to relocate our store to our new building next tot he shed. It was then necessary that we employ a bike mechanic on our staff.

In 2011 we built a cellar under our shop – an future investment for our business.
