About Us


As it usually does… it started with a dream.

No, I didn’t wake up one day and say “I can do this better than the other guy”. I started when I was eleven. I came home with a muddy bike from a long hard day of riding. I set out to clean it and before I knew, it was in pieces. I learned quickly how things worked and put it back together better than new. I propped the bike in front of the fireplace and sat there staring at it all night. I was even more proud the next morning when I woke up on the couch and found my parents had put my bike to bed instead of me.

Years later, and a lot of hard work, the passion of cycling has never gone. With the help of my family, and the encouragement of my wife, my dream has come true. Now with more than 20 years in business, I still enjoy working in the shop every day and helping others to find the perfect ride.

Along with this unfortunate group of friends, I look forward to whatever lies ahead. Stop in and experience the difference for yourself. Cyclist Connection is “A Different Kind of Bike Shop”.
