normally found together, the two sports compliment each other quite well. As the seasons change, when the popularity of one sport fades, the other rises. If you live nearby the State College area, being involved with both bicycles and hockey is not really uncommon, since we have such wonderful venues for both sports here in Happy Valley. There are loads of scenic mountain roads and forested singletrack trails waiting to be explored by road cyclists and mountain bikers, and commuting by bicycle is a highly effective way to get around Penn State campus quickly and efficiently. The Pegula Ice Arena is an enticing reason to dust off your old ice skates, get those old blades sharpened, or maybe even treat yourself to a new pair of ice skates to go with that new ice hockey arena. State College is a great place for both biking and skating, and Eddie's Bicycle's and Hockey Equipment is a great place to get everything you need to cycle or skate.

Eddie's Bicycles & Hockey Equipment is a small, friendly bike shop with a personal feel that cannot be equaled by bigger shops. Here at Eddie's, there are only two of us, so you get to talk to the same person you spoke to the last time you were in for a visit. Nice, aye? Nothing gets lost in translation when you actually speak to the mechanic who's about to fix your bicycle, or when you actually speak to the guy who sharpens your skates. We love getting to know our customers, we usually make a lot of friends that way, and we like that about our small, friendly little shop. Even though we may not have the largest bicycle inventory, or the most expensive trendy brands, we believe we bring something to the table that begs your consideration; a friendly, honest approach to genuinely helping people. Eddie has been in business since 1985, and he believes he's only survived this long by treating people kindly and fairly.
