A ride with Tony Tom
Tony is founder and owner of A Bicycle Odyssey. A lifelong bicycle enthusiast, Tony owned his first bike at the age of ten–he rode it once and then promptly proceeded to take it apart. At sixteen, he read Silent Spring by Rachel Carson and knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life around bicycles. In 1975 Tony opened A Bicycle Odyssey. Though employees have naturally come and gone through the decades, Tony remains grateful and appreciative to the entire Bicycle Odyssey family.
At the age of 13, Jeremy fell in love with his first bike— a Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo—and he’s never looked back. Jeremy got his start racing nationals on the junior circuit in Boulder and now has over 23 years of wrenching experience. Jeremy’s other passions include gardening and playing the guitar - check out his band Tiny Television the next time you’re in the Bay Area.
Originally from Georgia, Sam recently taught English and explored the cycling industry in Taiwan for two years. His love of cycling began with mountain unicycling and over time he allowed a second wheel onto his rig. An avid explorer, Sam also works with Bike and Build to cycle across the country to benefit affordable housing groups.
Anna felt a mercurial attraction to A Bicycle Odyssey back in the fall of 2012. She wandered in for a standard annual tuneup of her Gunnar Sport commuter bike when she had a desire to be part of the Odyssean family. Working on Sundays, Anna is cutting her teeth in the retail world spending time with products and people that really interest her. Unusual modes of transportation are another passion, when she's not on the bicycle she can be found on a horse in the Marin Headlands or for longer journeys, her motorcycle (she commuted to fifth grade on a unicycle). Anna also manages the Odyssey's social media content, always looking for "nuggets of interest" among the patrons that visit in addition to adding to her own blog about the experience.
Joe is one of the mechanics at the Odyssey and his motto “I’m here to make people happy” really sums him up. He’s been wrenching on bicycles seriously for just over 11 years now and enjoys the fragrance of orange degreaser. A bicycle-related dream of his is to make it to Tasmania to compete in the Evandale Penny Farthing National Championships - among other things he has on the bucket list.
Ron is the “bean counter extraordinaire” for A Bicycle Odyssey and he's also an endurance athlete. Ron used to run 100+ mile races but after growing weary of the thoughts in his head during those long runs, he switched to bicycles in order to “see more of the landscape”. Ron has recently relocated here from Florida where he spent most of his years to date and is delighted to be working with Tony and crew. When he gets time off, he’s riding his Pinarello road bike on long scenic routes through Marin and parts north.
For over a decade, Scott has been wrenching on bicycles and after twenty years of cycling past the Odyssey ~ he joined the crew of mechanics when he couldn’t resist the Siren’s song emanating from the front door. Scott aspires to living a monastic life in the Trappist community for more than just brewing good beer but he sometimes falls short of the requirements. So in the meantime, he is looking to hatch a plan to colonize the moon with colleague Joe.
