Covered by a large canopy the shop sits at the edge of a hillside and has graceful, elevated ramps that launch and return bikers to the trail systems. Two support buildings and a bike wash sit under the canopy, clad to mimic over-sized tool boxes. One building houses a retail space and a check-in/check-out room for borrowed gear. The other building has a demonstration repair shop, storage garage, and an office. Both have toilet facilities, and the interiors are polished concrete floors with stained architectural-grade plywood walls and ceilings.
The canopy structure is steel with unique features that mimic a bicycle frame and parts. The canopy roof is white to reflect the summer sun and is insulated to reduce thermal transmission and noise during rainstorms. Two large fans provide comfort from the summer heat.
