Become South Florida’s top cycling ambassadors and preferred providers of cycling goods and accessories. Without regard to your experience level, Collareta Cycling is a place where you can come and get your questions answered in a non-threatening environment. We are just as happy to see you ride away on a new $300 cruiser, a hybrid, or a $10K dollar pro machine!
We see bicycles as much more than just another mechanical contraption that takes us from point A to point B. We see them as a vehicle that can, not only transport our bodies, but also our minds to unforgettable memories. From timeless memories such as, the first time you conquered the balancing act, the first time you felt the wind on your face, or even that first scrape on the knee; to creating new memories of going to the park, riding that first century, or competing in your first ironman. We believe that cycling can provide inspiration and timeless benefits that are too good to keep to ourselves, so we pride ourselves in spreading the word. As a bicycle shop, we consider it our responsibility to ensure those memorable moments keep happening way past our generation. To do so, we strive to provide you with the best possible service, and a carefully curated array of products that will keep your wheels turning.
Collareta Cycling was born out of the passion of one man for all things mechanical. He loved everything from cars to common machinery, but most of all, he loved the bicycle. Born in Genova, Italy, Giovanni Collareta later emigrated to Venezuela as he escaped the post WWII devastations in Europe. Giovanni started as a machinist in a construction company that soon gave way for this mechanical prodigy to start building things of his own. With little to his name and absolute necessity to get around this new country, he devised his own and first bicycle from a few spare parts he was able to find at a work site. From the success of his creation, his love for machinery was starting to bloom and the bicycle had become part of his livelihood and passion.
Surprisingly, Giovanni didn’t go into the bicycle production business, however the bicycle always occupied a special place in his heart. Instead, he became a very successful entrepreneur and inventor of many mechanical wonders.
He later passed on this love of mechanics and entrepreneurship to his children and grandchildren, and it is now that his oldest grandchild makes homage with this enterprise. Determined not to forget his words of advice,"I will always remember that hard work and determination is the right way to build something, and if you don’t do things right the first time, it is not worth doing them at all.”
