Celestial Cycles started as a way for owner Sheridan Marquardt to keep his love for cycling alive. Growing up in OKC, Sheridan, like most kids, rode his bike all over town, and he raced BMX throughout childhood. While at UCO, he discovered mountain biking, racing, and a life-long passion for bicycles.
In order to support his passion, he took a job at a bike shop, and then another one, until he decided to open his own business in 1999. Drawing inspiration from Celestial Seasonings, a tea company, of all places, that sponsored competitive women’s cycling in the 80’s, Sheridan founded Celestial Cycles. Originally founded as a frame-building business, Sheridan sought to emulate the commitment to and passion for cycling demonstrated by this unlikely namesake. Within a year he had his sights set on expanding his operations, and in 2002, the business transitioned to a full-service bike shop.
Now, nearly 20 years later, Celestial Cycles is an Oklahoma City institution, and Sheridan employs a full sales and service staff to ensure you get the best possible experience and quality support. From fixing flats to custom bike fits, from finding your first bike to restoring an old, faithful steed, we have experienced and knowledgeable staff on hand to help! The best part about Celestial Cycles—other than the personalized assistance you get from a shop of local cycling enthusiasts—is that it’s a one-stop shop.
