Our Story - Who we are and why we love All cyclists
Katie and Timothy Wakefield are the proud owners of The Spinning Spoke Cycle Hub, Trek Tuscaloosa, and Trek Columbia. For years, Timothy was unable to purchase bike parts and accessories in Florence. In fact, he had to travel more than an hour just to get his bike serviced. Assuming that other area cyclists were having the same troubles, he and Katie started looking at locations to open a bike shop. They wanted a location that was convenient for residents of Florence, Muscle Shoals, Tuscumbia and Sheffield. After careful deliberation, they decided that Downtown Florence was the best fit for their new business. The Spinning Spoke Cycle Hub opened its doors on July 1, 2014.
In May of 2016 they opened a new location in Tuscaloosa. As graduates of The University of Alabama and the place where they first met, Tuscaloosa is near and dear to their hearts. Roll Tide! Trek Bicycle Store Tuscaloosa is located in Midtown Village across from Chuck E. Cheese and near Wagner's RunWalk. Timothy, Katie, and their team are passionate about helping the students and residents of Tuscaloosa find the perfect bike! Trek Bicycle Store Columbia, their third location, was an opportunity that presented itself in late 2016, 6 months after Tuscaloosa opened. In January 2017 they began renovations in the store formerly known as The Wheel, located on the Square in charming downtown Columbia, Tennessee. On July 1, 2017, Trek Bicycle Store Columbia opened for business, and we LOVE serving the Columbia cycling community. You should join us for our weekly mountain bike ride at the nearby Chickasaw Trace trail every Saturday morning at 9 am!
As a company, we strive to be the friendliest bike shop you will ever enter and work hard to create a warm, inviting environment. We are appreciative of and love ALL of our wonderful customers. We are so grateful to know each of you! Thank you for all of the support at each of our three locations!
