A BICYCLE ODYSSEY

Posted 12/30/21

Dear community,

 

It is with the heaviest heart that we announce that Tony Tom passed away on October 27, 2021. A Bicycle Odyssey was such a huge part of Tony's life and identity, and we were all awed and inspired by the community and culture that he created through the shop. He had a mission to help people out, and for 46 years, Tony's passion for bicycles, insight and understanding with customers and the products he had in his store grew a circle of friends and customers from all over the globe.
