After living in the Folsom area for a number of years, Folsom Bike founders Wilson and Erin Gorrell felt there was something missing in the Folsom area and strongly believed this heavily invested cycling community needed a new approach to help take cycling to the next level. Their vision was taking things back to the simplicity of genuine and exceptional customer service. They feel their business is all about the people. Cycling is about community. They wanted to provide a community bike shop for all levels of cyclists. 7 years, 2 shops, 1 coffee shop, it is still this vision that Folsom Bike perpetually strives to fulfill.
It began in an economic recession....
Wilson and Erin Gorrell started Folsom Bike in 2009 during the economic recession. Everyone told them they were absolutely crazy and would never make it! Well…everyone did not know these two. If you tell them they can’t, they are both incredibly driven to prove you wrong. Couple their experience with their passion created a recipe for success. Both Wilson and Erin have business backgrounds and were confident that by combining their talents they could bring Folsom the, “Nordstom of Bike Shops, but the Cheers – where everyone knows your name” mentality. It was important to them to create a very aesthetically pleasing store that had competitive pricing, but have the community aspect of the Cheers mentality that you were friends for life….they know you by your first name.
