A local Gold Coast family business with a passion for bikes and generations of experience.

Opened by Mike Stout in 1979, over the years the humble Mikes Bikes at Miami, Queensland has become a highly regarded local institution. Mike was a champion cyclist, coming from a family of cycling champions dating back to before World War II.

But more than that, Mike was a champion of the benefits of cycling for everyone. He geared up and supported many road, track and triathlon competitors, he was instrumental in kicking off the BMX scene on the Gold Coast, and he lobbied governments for better cycling access and safety on local roads. He was always willing to offer his knowledge and experience to anyone who dropped into the shop. Though he retired from competitive racing, Mike never stopped cycling, making his daily dawn ride as much of a ritual as his breakfast cornflakes.

Now son Mark Stout carries on Mike’s tradition. After completing his Bachelor’s Degree at Bond University, Mark could not imagine working anywhere else than at Mikes Bikes. Mark learned his craft at his father’s side and became a skilled mechanic, while gaining a wealth of product knowledge and expertise, along with qualifications from formal training. The Mikes Bikes staff are comprised of a range of expert mechanics, racers and cycling enthusiasts who contribute a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team. We welcome you to come in and have a chat with us about your cycling needs and ambitions.

Service is our passion and bikes our life

“Ride as much or as little, or as long or as short as you feel. But ride.”
– Eddy Merckx
