2019’s Metro’s Best bicycle shop is Andy Jordan’s Bicycle Warehouse. The staff of Andy Jordan’s truly love what they do, which explains why the annual wins keep piling up.
Owner Drew Jordan was born in 1976, two years after his parents, Andy and Susan, opened the store. One could say Drew has been involved with the business his entire life. He worked side by side with his father, Andy, for many years until he passed away in 2015. Drew’s lead technician, Nate Zukas has been with the store for quite some time as well, assembling and servicing bikes at Andy Jordan’s since 1991.
Robin Blake and Ben Hyler started at Andy Jordan’s in 2007 and 2010 respectively, so needless to say when you are shopping for your new bike or need help with your existing bike, quality service is what you’ll receive. And with the addition of Jack Crockett in 2018, these gearheads can educate you on all the great places to ride locally, as well as regionally.
The Flow Master, created by Drew three years ago as the first ever permitted mountain bike race at FATS, has raised and donated almost $14,000 to SORBA-CSRA for the continued maintenance and upkeep at the trail system.
The staff is well versed in many different styles of riding from mountain biking to road biking and everything in between. But the crew at Andy Jordan’s Bicycle Warehouse doesn’t just sell bikes, they share the joy of riding with others. Matt Smith, who has been at the store since 2016, leads weekly road rides across the CSRA. The store also host a weekly mountain bike ride, a monthly mixed terrain ride dubbed “Off the Beaten Path”, and their monthly “Women’s Ride Day” spearheaded by Drew’s wife, Kim, in 2015.
In case you didn’t know, bikes require service the same as automobiles, and this, along with proper sizing and fitting, keeps the guys busy six days a week.
Conveniently located downtown on 13th Street, the location is a gathering space for like minded riders, friends and the like. With a warm, welcoming vibe and laser focus on the bicycle industry, Andy Jordan’s 45 years of service to Augusta’s two wheeled community is cherished by their customers and fellow riders.
A passion project for the crew has been the Forks Area Trail System (FATS) just across the Savannah River in Sumter National Forest. The internationally recognized mountain bike trail system features six loops, which inexplicably are just as fun for neophytes as professional riders.
The 3rd annual Flow Master is coming up October 19th. If interested in participating, get on board today as the field is limited to 150 riders.
