Who we are

Located on the Ones, Alive Outside is a retailer specializing in home fitness equipment and bicycles.  We are an official, authorized dealer for Trek, Electra, Cannondale, Oakley, Bowflex, and many others.  We use this relationship to stock quality merchandise that will last years.  In addition, we are equipped to service bicycles and even do field repairs on larger home fitness equipment.  We’ve even provided local organizations with fitness equipment to stock their gymnasiums and service to repair them.  Alive Outside’s commitment to quality and customer care has led us to where we are today.

If you have questions, feel free to contact us or stop by!


Alive Outside originally opened its doors as Miles Bike Shop back in 1980 with about 1000 square feet.  In September 1982, in order to meet our customer demands, we added additional inventory and product lines, moving into an approximately 2100 square foot facility out on West “A” Street. In 1992, an additional 1500 square feet was added to our West “A” location to allow for a new fitness and exercise product line. We never thought that it would be only 4 years later that we would have out grown that location again.

In 1996, we built and moved to our current location at 601 South Jeffers Street. Our facility is approximately 5800 square feet. This new location gives greater accessibility to our local and out of town customers.
