None Shop Info: Bethel Cycle has been serving the Cycling community from the same location for 45 years. We are a USAT Certifed Multisport Retailer. We offer the best road and tri bikes in the world, but what separates Bethel Cycle from most other shops or e-commerce sites is authenticity. Our staff has real world experience that you can only get from training, racing, bike fitting, repairing and building pro bikes day in and day out. You can email or call me directly anytime (or anyone on our staff). We will give you honest advice, minus the marketing hype, about what really makes a difference in your quest for the ultimate bike.
Bethel has become a mecca for road cycling in the Northeast. Bethel is the home of Cannondale, Topolino, the famous Bethel Spring Series and of course our shop. We are the headquarters for the largest USCF and USAT club in Connecticut. We would love to have you stop by and check out our shop and join our Saturday Shop Ride. If you can’t visit you can buy online and know that you are supporting a shop that actively supports a thriving club and local racing.

Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
