Taking a ride to Tony’s Bikes and Sports


MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Gears, spokes, and wheels. That’s one man’s focus over at Tony’s Bikes and Sports.

“When I walk in the door everyday, the magic is still there,” said Mike Macisco.

Mike started out as a customer when he was a young kid.

“What they call a shop rat,” said Macisco.

He says he would sweep, clean the bathroom, take out the garbage, break down the cardboard.

“You learn the business from the bottom up,” said Macisco. “The great thing about biking is the feeling you get is in harmonic with you.”

Mike says what he loves the most about the shop is coming in and seeing everything on the wall. He says it gets him excited about riding.
