EASTON CYCLE AND SPORT -
Since 1997, Ryan and Julie Hickey have been helping people
get outside and enjoy the roads, trails, rivers, creeks and Chesapeake Bay on Maryland's Eastern Shore. As the owners of Easton Cycle and Sport in Easton, Maryland, they've been matching customers with the bike, kayak, or canoe to outfit their personal adventures.
At a time when companies are directing their sales online, Easton Cycle and Sport meets its customers face to face. The business is a community success story, routed in Talbot County. Everyone who buys a bike or a boat there knows Ryan. They call him with questions, for advice, or to let him know what they've been doing.
There is the couple who bought a pair of kayaks and now uses them five nights a week and have each lost 50 pounds. There are the fathers and sons who rent bikes together as well as grandparents who come in for bikes for visiting grandchildren. For more than 12 years, Easton Cycle and Sport has been cultivating an active outdoor community. The phrase on Ryan's license plate is how he is known on the Eastern Shore: "BIKEMAN." Easton Cycle and Sport is the premier venue in the region for bikes and paddle sports.
