About Us

Bike the Planet is an online BIKE shop in Memphis, formerly known as R.B.’s Cyclery, was established in 2003 by Rod Bickel. Mel Clark, the current owner, worked as senior mechanic for Rod since 2010 and he and his wife Louise bought the shop in 2013. Bike the Planet will continue to sell Cannondale, Felt, Colnago, and Marin bikes but has added also the Lynskey line, handmade titanium bikes made in Chattanooga, TN. Although the shop’s roots are in triathlon and road riding, Mel has diversified the offerings to include lifestyle, comfort, and mountain bikes at a variety of price points. We offer the same excellent service and repairs for all makes and models of bikes as well a great selection of cycling accessories and apparel. Most of the staff from R.B.’s decided to stay on, but there are a few new faces too. Todd, who we loving refer to as “Toad,” is the repair shop lead and main wrench. Phil, Don, Nick, Mel, Louise, and Amy are also here to help you with your riding needs. Our soft goods range from Sugoi, Pearl Izumi, Bellweather, and Louis Garneau
