Our History

On a drive through the countryside back in 2002, we began talking about where we saw ourselves in 10 years. As an avid two-wheeler from an entrepreneurial family (John and his mom, June, ran Sanger Bicycles, while his dad, Jim, helped found Fresno Kawasaki), John convinced Vanessa that owning a bike shop and running it together would be a great life. Born and raised in the Sunnyside/Sanger area (we are both Sanger High grads – Vanessa via Lone Star and John via Centerville), we envisioned our shop in southeast Fresno, with a friendly and unintimidating atmosphere where cyclists and non-cyclists would feel welcome.

The very next day, we saw that a bike shop in Madera was for sale. We found the timing quite fateful and leapt at the chance to run a bike shop together as soon as possible. During our eight years in business there, we developed a reputation throughout the Valley for our friendly and knowledgeable service. In fact, we had customers who regularly drove from as far away as Visalia, Lemoore and Modesto for our expert repair service. Being away from our family and friends was hard, though, and when it came time to buy our first house in 2008, we made the conscious decision to move home to Sunnyside. We immediately started looking for the perfect spot for our Sunnyside store, and now here we are, living out our vision. We are living our dream!

Our whole team is as committed to our mission as we are, and this devotion is why people drive from all over the valley for our service. Our store is constantly evolving as we relentlessly seek ways to serve you better, and every single person at Sunnyside Bicycles is committed to the continuous improvement mindset. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you!
