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.
At Celestial Cycles, you’ll find a full line of leisure, BMX, mountain, and road bicycles, as well as accessories, apparel, parts and service. Everyone in the shop is a knowledgeable, experienced enthusiast, and we are happy to offer our expertise to answer any and all questions related to riding a bike. We want you to feel fully comfortable with your bike, your purchases, your experience, and your safety. Riding a bike should be fun, and it’s a great form of exercise, no matter your age or weight. Also, riding a bike is one of the best ways to bond as a family, to meet friends and neighbors, and to enjoy the outdoors. To help facilitate that, we carry all types of bicycles for every age and size!
Because we are committed to our community and to maximizing the fun of your biking experience, we will service any bike, no matter where you purchased it. Just bring it in; you’re still part of our community, and we want to help! We also have a low-price guarantee: if you find a better price from an authorized retailer of the exact same in-stock item in our shop, we will match the price.
Celestial Cycles proudly supports our community, as well as local charity rides and bike races, and we sponsor local club team OKCX. We work to keep your trails and roads safe, accessible and fun, and are always there with a smile when it’s time to play bikes. We are conveniently located in north-central OKC at 2929 W. Hefner Rd. Feel free to stop by the shop and meet the team or call us with any questions at 405-751-8809.
