About Take a Hike
Whether it be on foot, bike, snowboard, ski, kayak, or camel….Take A Hike stands for finding your Happy Place, a state of mind where your worries and monotony have no choice but to take a back seat!
Just like every other enthusiastic child, owner Joe Daniel grew up with a life full of two types of general entertainment; riding bikes and playing in the woods.
His father, an avid cyclist and bike shop owner, raised him in a world full of tires, trails, campfires, and good times. Unfortunately his father was forced to shut his doors in 2003 when online sales boomed and with no regrets his father calmly said, “I’m taking a ride!” Joe’s family’s love for the outdoors really set the stage for who he is now and paved the way for him and his team to come together and build Take A Hike Shop.
For the next 10 years Joe continued his job as a professional climber and although his love for climbing will never fade, the hard work took its toll. As a result he began to look for a new career and quickly thought of the old bike shop. He committed to the idea and spent the next two years preparing a modern version of his dad’s old shop. With his inspiration and his love for camping, hiking, climbing, and snowboarding, he was able to create this amazing online store to keep him and his father’s dreams alive.
