Cross Country Cycle opened it's doors during Tulip Time in 1984 with only $2000 of parts, accessories, and bicycles. Things have changed dramatically. But the service and home-town feel have not. We are a family owned and operated full service bicycle shop. The walls are now filled with parts and accessories of many varieties. We moved to our new location in 2006 making us Michigan's biggest bike shop. Our goal is helping you have more fun on a bicycle.
