So what's up with our name and how do you pronounce it?

CentriPedal is not a real word. It’s a combination of the words CentripeTal and Pedal.

cen·trip·e·tal [sen-trip-i-tl] is an adjective that means directed toward the center (opposed to centrifugal) as in operating by centripetal force.  Simply put, it’s the inward force exerted towards the middle of a rotating object and is part of reason why one can balance while riding a bicycle.

How do you pronounce “centripedal?”  Like Centripetal: [sen-TRIP-i-dl]

There you have it!


Where did we come from?

CentriPEDAL Bikes opened on June 21st, 2012.  Owners James and Karin Rardin have been residents of the Tri-City area since 1994.  James taught at James Logan High School for 17 years before deciding to turn his his passion of cycling into a career.  James and Karin have a son and 2 daughters.

By 2016 the store had grown enough to move to a larger space in September of that year, one space over from its original location.  It is still located in Thornton Plaza next to the original Suju's Coffee and Tea Restaurant. 

Our bicycle brands include Giant, Bianchi, Felt, Frog, and Sun.  We specialize in family, kids, and commuter bicycles with road and mountain bike offerings as well.  While your visiting discover how fun an electric bike can be.

We have an enthusiastic staff that is ready to help you select the best bike for you.
