Hi! I’m Marco, co-owner of Aztecs Bikes, a local cycle repair shop, which I run with the help of my partner Angie. I got into cycling from doing the daily commute on my bike, turned into a hobby, and then a profession, as I began my career as a supervisor at Evans in 2008. I’ve worked for many of the well known cycle brands such as Evans, Cycle Republic, Balfe’s Bikes, Have Bike and Cycles UK.
I aimed to further develop my career while asserting my independence. Thus, I embarked on a daring venture, investing in obtaining my Cytech Level 2 qualification and making the bold decision to establish my own business.
So, from our living room, Angie and I set up Aztec’s Bikes. I started to repair bicycles and Angie helped to run the business behind the scenes. Once we started, things really took off. There were bikes all over the house, filling the living room and even in my daughter’s bedroom! We got to the point where the house was simply bursting at the seams with bikes. We shared updates on social media, much to the amusement of our clients.
So we decided to open up our own shop in Devon Road, London. We have been open since the end of December 2021.
Our mission extends beyond selling products; we’re dedicated to providing personalised guidance and offering workshops that empower our customers to make informed choices about their bike. By creating a welcoming environment and promoting inclusivity, we aspire to be a place where everyone feels encouraged to explore the world of cycling, prioritise their wellness, and connect with others like-minded cycling enthusiasts.
Additionally, we are deeply committed to supporting our local community. We believe in collaboration and offer other small businesses with similar values the opportunity to showcase their products/services in our shop. This collaborative approach not only enriches our offerings but also contributes to the growth of local businesses that share our passion for quality and community.
