About Us

Who We Are

For over three decades, The Bike Shop has proudly been a part of the Winter Haven community. In 2017, Stewart and Meghan Mackie, passionate cycling enthusiasts, took the reins and relocated the store to downtown Winter Haven. Strategically stationed near the entrance of the Chain of Lakes trail and conveniently adjacent to Grove Roots Brewing Co, The Bike Shop offers more than just bicycles – it delivers a community experience in the heart of the city.

Meg & Stew Mackie


Meet the Mackies


Husband and wife duo, Stew and Meghan Mackie love bikes.

For Stew, his love affair with riding started with BMX as a kid, but after a close friend nudged him to try road-biking, the rest became history. Today he boasts numerous Florida cyclocross series wins and most recently swept state time trial for his age division. He is well known for his zeal behind the handlebars, welcoming personality, and love for a mid-day macchiato.

Meghan's passion for cycling quickly followed suit. After she received a bike for her birthday, immersion in the sport was inevitable. A month later, Meghan signed up for her first triathlon, and within a year she found herself competing in Ironman. Meghan now races cycle-cross with Stew on the regular and runs the Winter Haven Cycle Club.

Together, the duo is changing Winter Haven one bike at a time. Walk into their store and you'll spot Meghan snapping a new shot for their social media handles or marshaling everything from product ordering to point-of-sale development. Meanwhile, Stew is probably around the corner making conservation with new customers and introducing them to all The Bike Shop and Winter Haven has to offer cycling enthusiasts.
