OUR HISTORY

Senoia Cycle Works originally opened in 2012 by local restaurateur couple Frank & Wendy MaGuire and local bike mechanic Ty Ridgway, who all shared a passion for riding. Ty and the Maguires, alongside Chris Eckhardt, small business major at Auburn University and Deborah Tyler from a corporate background, all had the vision to open a bike shop in November of 2012 and on December 1, 2012 Senoia Cycle Works was opened on 66 Main Street Downtown Senoia.

ABOUT THE OWNERS

As of April 2017, Senoia Cycle Works was purchased by Carter and Taylor Schmeck transplants from Northern California and local residents of Senoia.  The shop’s primary owner, Carter Schmeck has a 35-year history in high level competitive cycling, 10 years of retail bicycle business experience, and over 20 years of business success in both the outdoor and entertainment industries.
