Voted #2 out of 150 plus on King 5 Best of Western Washington



Thank you to all that voted for Alki Bike and Board as the best bicycle shop in Western Washington. We did not dethrone the perennial winner, but as a much smaller family business we did not promote the vote on that level. The more organic results are very encouraging for the entire Alki Bike and Board team.  We really appreciate your support as well as our relationship with this wonderful community. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon.
