12 years ago, after spending two years working in southern Spain’s premier cycling store, Studio Velo’s founder, Scott Penzarella, sought a new life here in Marin County. After years of meeting some of the most interesting people from around the world, it became clear that one’s community is only as rich as its people, and its people should share a common thread.  It’s through cycling that Scott and his business partners, Colin Beardsley and Chris Reed, created a genuinely beautiful community here in Marin County.

Studio Velo's cycling community is rich, diverse, gender neutral, and wonderfully friendly. It's this community that  motivated us to be the best pro shop in the country. We were nominated as one of the Top 5 in 2014. From the latest cycling news to the classic Marin County Cycling loops, from Strava to the local bicycle coalition, MCBC, Studio Velo is at the center of the cycling community. Come in, you will not be disappointed.
