our mission: a bike for everyone

Hi, my name's Chad Marn. I started Bike Ohio in 2012 as a way for me to share my passion for bicycles with the people of Ohio. Bicycles, quite literally, have changed my life- they've become a major part of who I am and I've made it my mission to get as many people into bicycling as I possibly can. Bike Ohio serves as not only a source of getting Ohioans amazing bicycling products and accessories, but as a headquarters where both enthusiasts and newbies alike can come for advice, service, and more than a few laughs.

We want to cultivate a community of bike lovers and we're doing it through our retail store, our race teams, our kids events, and a non-profit we helped fund called Shifting Priorities which aims to show those battling addictions the therapeutic nature of riding bikes.
