Remember the enjoyment of riding a bicycle? Placing foot to pedal, feeling the road flying beneath your wheels. Every day more and more people are rediscovering the joy of biking. It’s a great low-impact alternative to running.

One of the main benefits of biking is that it grants access to some of the most beautiful trails in the area like the Wabash-Cannonball Trail, a 63-mile multi-use recreational path running through northwest Ohio. The North Fork of the trail begins at Maumee’s Jerome Park. It’s important that you find a bicycle that fits your needs. Spoke Life Cycles would like to introduce you to road biking.

Road bikes are light and fast, offering a smoother ride on pavement than a traditional bicycle. These bikes are tuned to let you fly, your way. No matter what you crave — the full-tilt sprint for the line, epic weekend miles with the crew, or quality track time—the right bike for your ride is waiting for you at Spoke Life Cycles.

Who are we? We are two guys realizing a dream of owning their own bike shop, allowing us to share our passion for biking with so many people. That passion took shape in the form of Spoke Like Cycles. And, whether you are a novice or experienced rider, our friendly and knowledgeable staff can help you select the perfect bike to ride the Wabash-Cannonball Trail.



If your goal is to train for the next race or a short trip to the store or coasting down one of the many trails in the area, we have the bike for you. We carry Specialized, GT and Schwinn bicycles. Spoke Like Cycles has a full service department for all makes and models including brands such as Trek, Cannondale, Giant and many others.

At Spoke Life Cycles we cannot only help select that perfect bike, we can also help with bicycling accessories such as computers, lights, transportation racks, child carts. Any gear that you need for your bike we can get! We also have ride and mountain bike clinics that cover from the basics to advanced skills.

We have two locations in the Toledo area — Perrysburg, 26597 North Dixie Hwy., at the Shoppes at River Place and Sylvania, 6363 Monroe St., in the River Crossing Center.

So if your passion is racing down an asphalt lane on a road bike, around the neighborhood on a cruiser or down a dirt path on a mountain bike, stop by one of our Spoke Life Cycle shops for any bikes, equipment or service that you need.
