Hawk Harris had been manager of AJ’s Cyclery’s Georgetown location on Williams Drive for about five years when the shop’s owner decided to close the location to focus on his main store in North Austin.

With the cycling sales and service business blending his passions for enjoying the outdoors and connecting with people, Hawk decided to continue in the business and opened Georgetown Bikeology in December 2018 on Leander Road.

“I originally came from a running background,” Hawk said. “I ran numerous road races down here in the Central Texas area and then ventured off into doing some biking. That got me into that world of helping people understand more about the bikes.”

Georgetown Bikeology sells bicycles for riders of all ages as well as bicycle parts, cycling accessories and safety gear.

Hawk said the shop offers a full line of mechanic services, from basic tuneups to more extensive bicycle overhauls. Delivery and pickup service are also available for customers.

He runs the shop with help from his wife, Leonor Harris. The two first met when Leonor, a triathlete, visited the former AJ’s shop in Georgetown as a customer. They married in November 2018 amid the hustle and chaos of starting the new cycling shop, Hawk said.

“It’s been a lot of fast days [and] a lot of fast months,” he said.

Hawk also has help in the shop from part-time bicycle mechanic Alex Munoz, who handles service and repairs about three days per week, Hawk said.

Along with running the business, Hawk said he likes to organize group bike rides for cyclists in the Georgetown area. He said he plans to organize a special group ride for kids this summer near Lake Georgetown.

“I love to be outside. It’s my passion,” Hawk said. “I love to give back to people.”
