Bike Tech is building new “bike shop Macon deserves” and will move from Vineville Avenue to Second Street by Summer 2021

MACON – Bike Tech is coming to Downtown Macon. The independent, family-owned bicycle business will move from its original Vineville location to 909 Second Street, with plans to open its new location this summer. 

Bike Tech remained at its original location at 3003 Vineville Avenue since opening in 1982. The decision to move to Downtown Macon was based on better access to cycling opportunities. The new location, which is currently under renovation, will allow more customers to begin and end rides from the bike shop and increase proximity to the Ocmulgee Heritage Trail, BMX ramps at Carolyn Crayton Park and other bikeable destinations.

Co-owner Bobby Schorr said the new space is being designed to further improve Macon’s cycle-friendly appeal. “Our daily goal is to enhance our customers’ cycling experience in Macon and Central Georgia. Bike Tech’s new shop is designed to provide an extremely high level of cycle service and to stock all the bicycles, products and accessories needed to enjoy the ride, right here at home. We are proud to build the bike shop that Macon deserves,” he said. 

Bike Tech is a full-service bicycle shop that sells bikes built for all ages, abilities and budgets (including e-bikes). It also offers a bike repair department that offers skilled repair and maintenance for all makes, models and complexities – from bike washes, tune-ups and flat tire repairs to complete overhauls. 

The new location will allow more space for bike inventory, a kiosk that highlights local areas to ride and Bike Tech’s full range of on-site repair services. Bike Tech will continue to offer on-site parking, as well as local pick-up and delivery.

Bike Tech will share 909 Second St. with the Historic Macon Foundation, which is managing the preservation of the historic mid-century modern property.

 

“There is new energy in this great old building,” said Ethiel Garlington, Historic Macon’s executive director. “One more site in downtown Macon is coming back to life, and we’re glad to share it with Bike Tech.”

 

Bike Tech will remain open at its 3003 Vineville Avenue until fully transitioned to the new location, expected to be ready in July 2021.
