About Us

 

I’m Tony and my wife Michelle and I are the owners of Ashland Bike Company.  This venture started as an idea several years ago and was launched in June of 2017.  We had the vision to bring a high quality, service focused, and community centered bicycle shop to Ashland.  I have spent the better part of the last 15 years actively participating in cycling and servicing bicycles whenever possible.  From 2008 through 2017 I taught high school science and after nine years of teaching I decided to pursue my dream of opening a retail bike shop.  Our values for this shop are simple, to treat our customers the way we would like to be treated.  To operate with the highest standards of service, carry the best products we can, and always look outward to our community to help grow and sustain our little town.

 

If you haven’t been to Ashland with your bike its worth the trip.  We have some of the best roads out there for long rambles through the countryside.  From Ashland, there are three excellent trail centers for mountain biking within a 25-30 minute radius;  Mohican State Park is in Southern Ashland County, Vulture’s Knob is 25 minutes East, and Findley State Park is 30 minutes North.  You can jump on your bike from home and ride to Lake Erie, go South and hit some serious hills, or simply cruise around town as the people here are super friendly.

Our retail and service space blend together within our storefront.  We happen to share building space with an exciting new brewery with food and beer… need we say more?  On Thursdays from March through September we host group road rides for a variety of abilities, and Saturday mornings we have our “Power Hour” rides for those that like to go fast on two wheels.
