America's #1 Bike & Plant Shop is popping up in the Alps this summer
That’s right, Team Dream will be in Tirano, Italy this June - August! We have hosted many friends from all over the world in our pop up space at The Cub House and we are excited to finally be taking our weird show on the road. Italy felt like the perfect place to do our first pop up because it was a trip to Italy that served as the original inspiration for Team Dream. Italy’s passion for cycling is undeniable. It is home to some of the best riding and it’s no secret that a lot of the top cycling apparel is produced there. Team Dream’s euroVACAY line is made right in northern Italy so everything at the pop up will be fresh out of the oven. A bunch of our friends and favorite brands will be joining us. And there will be a zillion events throughout the summer. Weekly bike rides, taco parties, limited edition only available in Italy releases, mountain side naps, family friendly hikes and so much more. Everyone is invited!

America's #1 Bike & Plant Store
The Cub House is a little bit of a lot of different things. This old service station is part bike shop, part plant store with a coffee cart, events, ping pong and cats thrown in. It's the Team Dream HQ in Los Angeles.
Ten years ago, while visiting Tirano for the Giro, Sean fell in love with the Italian Alps, its people and culture. That trip was the inspiration for what became Team Dream and we've been going back ever since. Now YOU can experience the best of the mountains with the Team Dream all-stars as your official guide.
On The Bike
Some of the most world famous passes including the Stelvio, Mortirolo and Gavia are all here!! From the most iconic to the "under the radar only locals know about it" rides we have the inside scoop. Gravel and/or road bike with low gearing suggested.
Off The Bike
First off, Italy is the gelato capital of the world... just sayin ;) There are a host of hikes, walks, glacier touring train rides, famous lakes, resort towns and much more all suitable for the entire family. PLUS pasta!!
How much does it cost?
It's totally up to you and your group. This trip is as 'treat yo self' as you want. There is zero charge from us for you to come visit. We will offer a wide range of suggestions for accommodations, rides, restaurants and other activities in a downloadable tour guide pdf. We gain no commission from any of the bookings you make and all the shop rides/events are free!
When is it?
The pop up will run June-August. We have a variety of events and people visiting the shop all summer. It is going to be action packed! There is no strict schedule of events just yet but rest assured there will be amazing rides and fun happenings whatever week(s) you choose!
Where should I stay?
We have a complete list of places to stay in Tirano in our downloadable Tour Guide pdf. It all depends on your needs/preferences. If you want breakfast included in an affordable spot close to downtown try B+B Movimento. If you want the full hotel experience check out the Curt di Clement Hotel.
Can I rent a bike, or should I bring one?
This is totally up to you! Most airlines have fair rates if you decide to bring your bike along. We usually bring ours in regular ol' bike boxes. There are a couple bike shops in town that can unpack and pack your bike for you. We have a list of shops you can rent from in our downloadable Tour Guide pdf.
How long should I stay?
This is up to you! Take into account how much riding and/or family time you want. The great thing about Europe is that everywhere is a train ride away! If your goal is solely to bike then you can easily spend weeks if not months in Tirano exploring all the insane offerings. If you are coming with plans to visit other parts of Italy/Europe we recommend a minimum of 4 days in Tirano.
Who will be there?
There are a ton of family and friends coming along and you might even get to hang with an Olympian, a world champ, or a ultraromantic granola connoisseur. Worst case you just get Danny Heeley ;)
Can I bring non-cyclist friends/family?
This is YOUR vacation so it's up to you! Tirano is a family friendly town that has a lot to offer for everyone!
Will The Cub House in California still be open?
YES! The LA shop will stay open as usual. Our shop staff might make special appearances in Italy but will be watching the San Marino cub house with love all summer.
