"About 5 years ago, I gave up running due to an injury on my Achilles’ tendon. I always had an interest in cycling, and after getting to know Bob Soroky from Century Cycles through a few Medina Chamber of Commerce networking events, I decided to pursue cycling.
I met up with Bob at the Century store in Medina and explained to him that I was looking for a good lightweight bike, was somewhat on a budget at the time, and not interested in racing but more focused on endurance. He showed me several bikes that would fit my goals, and I settled on the Giant Defy Advanced 3 full carbon drop bar road bike. Also, while I was there, one of the sales people talked me into signing up for the BikeMS fundraiser ride and Team Left Hand, which was a 100 mile ride the first day and 75 the next day. This great cause gave me the motivation to train hard and prepare for the event.
After that first summer of riding, I realized that I enjoyed it and it was time for an upgrade. The following year, after discussing my new goals with a sales person at CC, I upgraded to the Giant Defy Advanced 1. It met all my expectations as it was light weight, great for endurance, and comfortable. Over the years, the staff at Century Cycles have always been friendly, courteous, professional, and helpful."
"When I take the bike in for repairs, Century takes the time to explain what they are doing and how I can better maintain the bike. And, as always, they strive to get the bike back to me as soon as possible.
Looking back, I am glad that I got to know Bob at the Medina Chamber as he reintroduced to me the world of cycling. Cycling has taken the place of running, helps me stay healthy, reduces stress in my life, and has opened up a world of new friendships."
