KILLINGTON, Vt. (BRAIN) — Following a major remodel, Alpine Bike Works has reopened as a Giant Partner Store. This is the third major change in as many years for this rapidly growing bike shop.

Alpine Bike Works opened in 2015 in a 1,500-square-foot location on Route 4 in Killington, just a short distance from the Killington Access Road, which leads to the ski area.

In 2017, the shop moved to the new larger location at the base of the Killington Access Road. The current location is almost twice the size of the original store. In addition to bike sales and service, Alpine Bike Works is also home to Fat Bike Vermont fat bike rentals and Killington Ski Bike ski bike rentals. The shop held a grand reopening as a Giant Partner Store on June 16.

The store's owner, Tony Accurso, said, "We partnered with Giant because we believe they offer the best in product engineering and design, dealer support and dealer product channels, which in turn allow us to provide the best products, support and experience to our customers."

According to a release from Giant, since partnering with Giant shortly after they opened, Alpine Bike Works has seen double-digit growth and expects this trend to continue as the area continues to grow into one of the top cycling destinations in Vermont.

Besides being located near the resort, the location is at the intersection of two major road touring routes and close to several mountain bike trails systems.
