Welcome to Upshift Cycles San Jose!

Upshift Cycles, the ultimate mom and pop bike shop, began life when Stephanie and Eric Slocum, two bicycle nuts in San Jose purchased La Dolce Velo Bicycles from Rob and Jacquie Mardell in March of 2022.

A long time fixture in the community, La Dolce Velo had helped many people get on their first bikes or even their first dream bikes. Upshift Cycles aims to do the same. We want to keep everyone cycling in our community, from casual cruisers to road racers, from commuters to mountain shredders. We believe bicycling is for everybody, no matter what you're riding.Whether you are an experienced cyclist or new to the lifestyle, Upshift Cycles is your bicycle shop in San Jose.
