About Trek Bicycle Corporation

Trek is a place where you’re valued for being you. If you’re really into bikes, that’s great. If you’re not (yet), that’s great too. Because there’s a lot more to Trek than bikes. Every person has a unique history and life experience to bring to the table. We respect that. It’s what makes us who we are.
