Freeze Thaw Cycles is located at 109 South Allen Street in downtown State College, Pennsylvania.

The main streets in downtown area are College Ave, Beaver Ave and Allen Street. College and Beaver are both one-way streets running in opposite directions that form a loop around the downtown area. Allen Street bisects the loop and points directly up the Penn State mall. There isn't much parking on Allen Street, so continue below for the nearest parking garages. Resist the urge to park in the commercial loading zone outside of the shop, parking tickets are no fun and those that issue them are good at their jobs.

If you are visiting via I-99 take the PA 26 exit for State College and follow PA 26 South into State College. A left at either Pugh Street or Fraser Street gets you solid parking in a municipal garage near to the shop. Take a left on Allen Street and you'll see our shop on the left.


There are lots of good nearby parking options. Parking garages are located on either block before or after Allen Street: Pugh Street and Fraser Street. There is also a Parking Garage located on Beaver Avenue near to the shop. Any of these garages gets you within one block of our shop! Bikes on the roof? Metered street parking is available on both sides of College Avenue, Beaver Avenue, and Allen Street, but please avoid the commercial loading zone in front of the shop as you will get a ticket.

If you need any help bringing bikes to or from the shop please call us at 814-272-0178 and we can help you with transport to and from your parking spot.


Justin's dog Bosco is the same age as the shoppe. He spends most days at home, but occasinally visits... he sometimes growls to say hello but is totally harmless. Watch for him out on the trails and rivers!

State College is fortunate to have lots of great mountain, gravel, and road riding. Rothrock State Forest affords us the luxury of being able to ride a short distance to our expansive trail and fire road network. Mountain and Gravel riding in Rothrock is an option at almost all times of the year, with the exception of major hunting seasons - check with DCNR for updated listings.

From November - April each Monday and Wednesday we host an In-and-around-town MTB ride. Join us at 7pm in the parking lot behind TGI Fridays on North Atherton Street. The Monday ride is 1 hour at a very casual pace. The Wednesday ride is 2 hours at a swift pace and we stop often to re-group. A MTB, Lights, helmet, shoes, Grand Sense of Adventure and your best PMA are the strict posted requirements. These rides showcase trails within close riding distance to town and campus - a fun way to get out when Rothrock is under ice...

 We announce the status of this ride each week on our Instagram + Facebook accounts, or stop in/call the shop to ask...

Mountain biking isn't limited to Rothrock, plenty of other surrounding areas house some of the best trails on the east coast. If you are in State College you are less than 3 hours from Michaux State Forest and even closer to Lykens. The Allegrippis trails at Raystown Lake are about an hour away and offer a break from the rocks and great camping. We even have some trails close enough to town to take test rides. Feel free to pick our brains on riding options and see what Central PA has to offer.
