about us

We are Sarah and Tom Swallow we are originally from Southwest Ohio, but currently have no address. Swallow Bicycle Works started as our bicycle shop to fund our adventures and has since grown into something more. After 5-years of owning and operating our own business we had to choose to pursue a life in the bicycle shop, or pursue adventure. We chose adventure. In the summer of 2015 we closed our bicycle shop and drove a rental car packed with two fully loaded bicycles to the Outer Banks of North Carolina where we departed on a cross-country tour along the dirt road dual sport motorcycle route, The Trans America Trail. It is said that we are the first ones to complete the route on bicycles. These days we are continuing to travel with our bicycles. Sometimes, out of our van, but sometimes just by bike. Our mission is to share rides and destinations that inspire a sense of adventure. Rides that make you feel like you have been somewhere, that you have done something, so when you go back into work on Monday, you are still working off the endorphins. We want you to get out there and do it! It will change your life. We promise.  


We work with a small and unique group of companies that understand the importance and benefit of exploring the world by bicycle. If you are into adventure or just having a good time on your bike, pay these companies a visit at the links below.
