About Us

About Us

Established in 2005, Discovery Cycles is a family owned and operated business located in Cairns, Queensland. Growing up right next to the world-renowned Smithfield Mountain Bike Park, owner Larry and his brothers grew up as avid riders, and enjoyed participating with the local riding community. For this reason, Discovery Cycles constantly seeks to grow its riding family and be, not just a business, but something people can be a part of. Discovery Cycles does this by being a socially responsible business that actively contributes to the local community. Over the last decade, we have developed a strong community standing through our charitable support of local school events, community projects, and non-for-profit clubs.

Discovery Cycles operates two separate retail stores, one in Cairns and another in Smithfield, as well as an online store. Our Cairns store is conveniently located in the CBD, while our Smithfield store is only two kilometres from the famous Smithfield Mountain Bike Park. Our third store is online, where we sell high quality cycling products to our customers all over Australia.

At Discovery Cycles, we truly value great customer service and hold ourselves to the highest possible professional standards. To that end all our staff are experienced, passionate riders who believe in our mission to be a business the community can be proud of. As part of our unrivalled attention to detail, we make your bike YOURS with Project One and Precision Fit. And our Friends with Benefits initiative means you’ll enjoy a generous loyalty rewards program and servicing offers.

We love to ride

We’re on the same side of the counter as you – passionate riders looking for great service and value. This means we’ll fully cater to your needs without overselling.

F1 grade workshop

Working in a sleek, clean workshop with the most advanced tools, our mechanics take pride in their work to ensure a thorough and efficient build, service, or repair.

We are where you need us to be

In the city, on the mountains, out at the beaches, and online. We’re always at the local events, and you will even find us supporting our riders at events across the country.

Giving back

Discovery Cycles is committed to supporting the Cairns community. We happily donate our time and money at local cycling events, to schools, charities and the emergency services.

Our stores


Discovery Cycles Smithfield is ideally located right near the world-renowned Smithfield Mountain Bike Park. The store was originally opened by Paul and Andrea in 2005.  They managed the business up until 2011, at which time they decided to move to Melbourne. The business was officially taken over by the current owners, Larry and Stacey, in July, 2011.


Discovery Cycles Cairns is conveniently located in Cairns CBD and is a Trek Concept store, exclusively stocking Trek and Bontrager bikes and accessories. We have built great relationships with many of our suppliers, but none better than with Trek Australia. So, with the partnership between Trek and Discovery Cycles we started construction on our second store in 2014.


In 2015 we further expanded the business and opened our online store. The aim of our online store was to give our customers the best possible deals on as many products as possible. The online market is highly competitive, which we love, so we keep the price as low as possible to benefit you the customer as much as we can.
