Get Your Cycling Gear For Ironman Coeur d'Alene



The Iron Man Triathlon is fast approaching in beautiful Coeur d'Alene Idaho. We wanted to take a moment to appraise all of our athletes on the availability of  great cycle shops that cater to all types of biking enthusiasts. You can be sure to fill your needs at any one of these shops.

Our favorite is locally owned "Vertical Earth," they offer a whole lot of everthing you might need, from bike rental to full computerized custom bike fitting. Mike Gaertner is the owner and we have enjoyed working with him in the past to provide a great experience for our guests that choose to bike ride during their visit. Mike and his staff always tell our guests that cycling is the best way to see the nicest views of the lake and offers such unique ways to see the town, up close and personal. He offers a variety of services and repairs from flats for $5 + tube costs, to derailleur adjustments, $10 front or rear.

Things To Consider:
  • Vertical Earth; 2175 N. Main; 208-667-5503 Choose from a fleet of bikes. $15 half day; $25 full day; Includes helmets. Trunk mount bike carriers: $15- 1 day rentals
