Métier is more than a training gym, bicycle shop and café for Seattle’s endurance sport athletes. It’s an environment built exclusively for those who believe, as we do, that anything worth doing is worth perfecting.
To service that commitment, Métier offers something unprecedented: access to all the tools of the athlete lifestyle in one place. State-of-the-art facilities; world-class equipment, and services; thoughtfully crafted food, events and communal experiences; and the unmatched coaching and camaraderie of some of the region’s best competitors and trainers.
Métier exists on the philosophy that winning is not a moment of triumph – it is habit of discipline and a process of becoming. We support it wherever we find it. Innovation powers us, athletes inspire us, potential drives them.
Métier. Literally defined as “one’s calling”, this word has for some an even sharper meaning.
In cycling Métier is the point when sport moves from something that is done to a way of life – from simply racing a bike, to being a bike racer.
Métier is on the bike and off the bike and around the bike. It is the highs and lows. It is glory and respect, sweat and fury, loneliness and tough choices. But most of all it is a personal code, a guiding light.
This word is the spirit of our community. We live for the total dedication to an endeavor, engaging each individual element, creating a greater whole.
For us, racing and culture are forever intertwined. Beauty and savagery will always express this best. Yet we believe this ideal transcends and encapsulates a special way of life. A way of life we want to teach and inspire in all those willing to dare mighty things.
A dedication to details. A passion for better. A love for the stories. A joy in the endeavor.
Métier. It is. We are. Godspeed the rider.
