about us

Bay City Cycles was founded in 1981 by Joe Agostine and his father, and was soon sold to Bill Holman. Karl Faber bought into the shop with the legendary Dr. Tim Doyle in 1988 and has operated Bay City Cycles ever since. His daughter Alex grew up in the store and just won’t leave.

Our mission is to keep our community rolling. Keep the rubber side down.
