Cyclery is owned and operated by the father and son duo, Andy & AJ
Baxter, originally from New York. Andy, the father, fell in love with
cycling in 1985 and AJ, the son, dabbled with riding and watching
the Tour as his dad rode miles and miles in upstate NY. Andy rode a
trainer in the winter and completed many organized rides and centuries.
In his spare time, he built bikes and wheels. Now they both live
in Tampa and have been riding all over the Bay area consistently for the
past seven years. Their true passion for cycling shows when you talk to
them about any form of cycling, especially road riding.
clinic manager at Select Physical Therapy
in Carrollwood, has been in that field for over twenty years and encourages
people daily to get off the couch and exercise. Walking and cycling are
both great ways for families to exercise and do something together,
especially here in Florida were it can be done year round. Of course,
cycling is his first choice, but any form of exercise is a good thing!
with one company for over thirty-five years, Andy retired. After two
years, he realized retirement was nice and riding four days a week was
fun, but the bike shop itch kept calling him.
Owning a bike shop was a
dream he and AJ always shared and was the topic of discussion
during many rides. With the encouragement of friends and family, they
decided to open Citrus Park Cyclery. Now, the dream is a reality.
