We pride ourselves on our unique businesses that cater to our eclectic and growing arts district. Meet Mike of Ascent Cycles, NoHo's official bike shop.
Ascent Cycles is a full-service, bicycle retailer with a great selection of road, mountain, hybrid, e-bikes and kids bikes. They also stock a wide range of parts and accessories to keep you geared up, and they maintain and repair all brands of bikes to the highest standard.

What types of repairs does Ascent Cycles do?
Ascent Cycles is able to handle any repair-from changing a tube to completely overhauling a bike. Here's just a couple highlights of the repair services we offer (not a comprehensive list)
What makes us the destination for the customers cycling needs?
We have a great selection of bikes, including kid's, hybrid, mountain and road. We have a friendly atmosphere where both new and seasoned riders are always welcome. We have a great selection of accessories and components and nutritional supplements to help you get the most out of your ride.
Tell us a bit about your cycling experience?
I have been in the cycling industry for almost 20 years. I began my career as a junior-level bike assembler in Northern California. I began road & mountain bike racing competitively at age 12, then went on to compete in collegiate-level events while attending Humboldt State University. I have been a shop mechanic for 10+ years and am a former Continental Pro-team mechanic. I love everything about cycling and helping people get the most out of their experience.
Why did you chose the NoHo Arts District?
I chose to open my business here in North Hollywood because I thought a full-service, full-line bike shop would be a great fit for the area. NoHo is a very accommodating when it comes to navigating by foot or bicycle. I also believe that as the area continues to thrive, we will see more of a need for a quality bicycle shop in the area that caters to every type of rider.
