OUR ORIGIN STORY
It begins, as all good origin stories do, with a chance meeting. An illustration student and a philosophy major introduced by a mutual friend. Many years, three kids, a few different states, several adventures, a couple of cats and dogs, and multiple bicycles later; they fell in love with the Sacopee Valley and as a family decided to open The Local Gear in Cornish.
Along the way, David discovered a talent and passion for fixing all things bicycle. He now has 20+ years of mechanical experience ranging from racing bicycles, racing wheelchairs, and high-end road bicycles to mountain and family recreation bikes.
We believe the outdoors are for everyone, regardless of fitness level or physical ability and our family is committed to supporting our customers at every point of their journey. We offer outstanding bicycle sales and service along with recumbent trikes, boots, trail shoes, and outdoor sporting goods for hiking, camping, fishing, boating, and hunting. The Sacopee Valley and Maine have so much to offer outdoor enthusiasts and we are excited to be a part of this community.

Our COVID-19 policies as recommended by the State of Maine and CDC.
As of Monday May 24, 2021, the State of Maine no longer requires masks indoors. We are choosing to lift the mask requirement at The Local Gear at this time. The CDC recommends unvaccinated people 5 and up continue to mask and maintain physical distancing and we hope people will follow this recommendation. Dave has been fully vaccinated since April 23, but he is happy to wear a mask if requested to do so. Curbside Service is available. We will continue to follow CDC recommended hand washing and disinfecting practices to keep our store as safe as possible for you.
Thank you for your cooperation!
