Cycling Republic, in Algonquin, Illinois, is owned and operated by Rob and Amanda Sanders. Rob began riding and working on bikes at a young age where his love for the cycling community began. His experience moved him from southern Illinois to southern California to Omaha, Nebraska, and then back to the Chicagoland area.
As a teenager, he worked for a bike shop in California after school and during summers learning about the mechanics of bicycles and sales techniques, as well as competing in mountain bike races. His work experience continued in Omaha where he became a certified mechanic, continued to race, and earned his bachelor's degree in graphic/web design.
Through these experiences, Rob honed his skills in marketing, and learned the day to day business aspects of running a bicycle shop. Rob and Amanda realized the need for a bike shop in the Algonquin area and pursued their goal of owning their own business. In the [season and year], Rob and Amanda opened Cycling Republic, and are very grateful for the community that has grown around the shop.
Cycling Republic continues to maintain a family atmosphere in the shop where you’ll often see Rob and Amanda’s two kids visiting as well as Rob’s parents offering a helping hand to customers.
