Out with the Old... In with the New!

The new location is officially open today, Monday, April 11th!

Please pardon our mess while we continue to work to get everything organized and we finish up some minor work around the store.  But we are officially open and ready for business at the new location.  

The address of the new store is 1320 Creighton Road and it's directly across the street from Subway.

GCCT will announce a Grand Opening Event in the next couple of weeks.

After we get settled in, all work finished up, and inventory fully stocked, then we'll plan for a big Grand Opening Event!  We'll keep you posted on our progress and announce a date for the Event soon!  Thank you again for your continued support and we can't wait to see you at our new location!

New Location Opening Monday April the 11th!

We are excited to announce the opening of our new location...

Gulf Coast Cycle and Tri will officially be open at 1320 Creighton Road this Monday, April 11th.  We are putting the finishing touches on everything and making the big move over the weekend!  Please excuse our work over the next couple of weeks, but we will be open and ready to service our Customers this Monday.  We are working hard to make this Shop great for you and great for our Cycling and Multi-sport Community!  We encourage you to stop in and look around to see all of the positive changes, new product lines, and improvements that we're making.

Thank you for your Support!

Without you, our loyal customers, none of this would be possible.  Thank you for your continued support!

Our renovation for the new Shop is taking shape!

We are making great progress with the construction of the new space!

GCCT is very excited to see the progress that is being made at the new location over the last month.  Major items have been completed such as demo, re-configuring the entire layout, building all new walls, sheetrocking and installing all doors, new energy efficient spray foam insulation, and the stripping of the concrete floors.  The final touches and finishes are being worked on now like exterior and interior paint, building the retail counter and coffee bar, putting up displays and racks, and the final design touches.

The GCCT Training Facility is for our Community!

We believe in our multi-sport and single-sport community, and we want to provide support and encouragement to those healthy, active, and positive lifestyles.  Our Training Facility will be for all athletes of all skill levels.  Whether you're preparing for your first Triathlon or you're training to qualify for KONA, the GCCT Training Facility will have classes, clinics, and equipment at your disposal to prepare you for your event!  Some of the things we will be offering are:

  • Form Clinics from Certified USAT Coaches for all three disciplines - Swim, Bike, & Run
  • Functional Strength Training classes geared for Triathlon
  • Transition area clinics to improve knowledge and speed at transition
  • Triathlon specific stretch and Yoga clinics
  • Bike trainer clinics - be ready to work!
  • Everyday use of our E-trainers with interactive software such as Zwift
  • The ability to perform Brick training with various Bike and Run friendly routes from our Shop
  • Nutrition and Recovery clinics

We'll offer Classes and Clinics by Certified Coaches!

TriPossibilities is our multi-sport training partner!  They are Certified USAT, US Masters Swimming, IRONMAN and USA Cycling Coaches.  Not only are we providing classes and clinics to our community, but Certified Coaches will share their vast knowledge of experience and expertise, making you a smarter, faster, stronger athlete!

Free use of interactive software such as Zwift

GCCT plans on having electronic trainers that any athlete can program and set to their specific power zones.  This is extremely useful when performing bike specific workouts such as interval training or long periods of uninterrupted threshold riding.  We will also provide interactive software that will allow an athlete to ride a specific course that's on Strava, including the elevations!  This allows one to actually practice a route or course before they perform an event.  This is all made possible with software like Zwift.  Here is a product overview taken from their website --

CYCLING IS SOCIAL.
Here at Zwift we believe that the best parts about cycling are the places you go and the people you go there with.

Outdoor cycling is great. But weather, traffic, time constraints and distance from other cyclists can take the fun out of it.

That’s why we’ve created a new destination that places you and your bike into immersive, detailed, 3D landscapes with other cyclists from around the world.

Now you can ride with anyone at anytime.

Packed with real-time stats, stunning lifelike graphics, and the latest in massive multiplayer online gaming, Zwift has kicked up the indoor cycling experience.

We think it’s the greatest innovation in cycling since the bicycle.

We will post more information and photos in the next couple of weeks.  Our current schedule has an expected opening date for sometime in mid April.  Please check back often and we thank you for your continued support!

Construction on the New GCCT Location has Started!

We're happy to announce that we're expanding into a new building!

We'll still be located in Pensacola, FL off Creighton Road.  It's actually only about 800 yards down the road from our current location, so it will be easy to find and convenient to all of our customers.

We are doubling the showroom space so we can expand our bicycle lines and have more sizes in stock, we are adding a dedicated clothing area, we are adding a large changing room with a future space for a shower, we are adding a dedicated bike fit room with all of the latest fit technology, we are adding a dedicated triathlon area for all of our multisport customers, and we are building and creating a full blown Training Facility located inside of the Store!

This Training Facility will hold year round Camps & Clinics and will have the latest technology in Training Gear & Recovery Equipment!

Some of the things we'll provide to our Athletes in this space will be Functional Strength Training classes that are specifically geared to multisport athletes, it will be available for Packet Pickup for local racing events, it can serve as a meeting/conference/event room, it will have available for athletes to use Electronic Trainers connected to the latest software that will be viewable on HiDef large screen monitors, and it will have Recovery Equipment and Nutrition.  Of course these are just some of the things we'll be offering, but please follow our blog or follow us on FB to stay updated as we announce more!

This will be the Gulf Coast's ONLY full functioning Training Facility created for our Triathlon Community!

Thank you to everyone and all of our customers that have supported us over the last 2-1/2 years.  All of you guys have made this growth possible, and we look forward to an exciting future!

December Slow Ride

We had a wonderful Saturday cruising the neighborhoods in Uptown Pensacola on our Slow Ride that we sponsored!

Thank you to everyone that joined us for the December Slow Ride!  We had a great turn out and Bike Pensacola did a wonderful job of putting this event together.  They had Pensacola City Councilwoman Sherri Myers speak about the importance of enjoying outside space through cycling and the need to grow cycling lanes, awareness, and safety.

Everyone at the shop and all of the participants had a blast with amazingly warm temperatures and clear blue skies to ride around under.  We look forward to hosting another Slow Ride with Bike Pensacola sometime next year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

‘Toys for Tots’ EPIC Charity Run/Ride Event Photos

Thank you everyone for coming out to the EPIC Charity Event!

It looks like 609 Toys were brought out and $10,185 dollars raised at the event! We are so very proud to have been a part of this wonderful day.  We met and talked with a lot of giving people, and all while experiencing the joy of mountain biking!  It doesn't get much better.  PORC did an amazing job putting this event together!  

Our Demo bikes were used on the trails and we received a ton of great feedback from everyone that tested them out.  We were happy to provide this for the event, and want to thank everyone for stopping by our tent to chat or demo one of our bikes.  We'll see you all next year!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday's to everyone!
