Martin’s Cycling and Fitness opened its doors in Albert Lea in May of 1981. It started out with 3 partners. Al, Scott, & Glen Martin. It is now currently owned by Scott & Nancy Martin. The Martin tradition of working in the bike industry started in the 1960’s in the Martin family garage. William Martin owned and operated Martin’s Cycle Shop in Plainview Minnesota. In the early 1970’s Bill & Al Martin opened a bike shop in Owatonna Minnesota under the name of Martin’s Hostel Shoppe. In 1980 Al decided to expand into Albert Lea with his brothers Scott & Glen Martin. In 1990, Martin’s expanded into Austin Minnesota. That store closed in 1995. In 2004, Al sold the store in Owatonna. This left Martin’s Cycling and Fitness the only store owned by an original Martin.
At Martin’s Cycling and Fitness, we believe in the growth of cycling and great customer care.
