Big Daddy’s Bike Shop was founded in 1998 with 25 bicycles that were rented from the shade of a bamboo tiki hut tucked in among the banana trees and strolling peacocks of Patrone’s Hide Away in old Grayton Beach. Locals and tourists leaped at the opportunity to park their car and bike to neighboring communities along scenic highway 30A and local South Walton beaches.
19 years later, Big Daddy’s Bike Shop is still local and still under the same ownership. Fixed at the top of the Highpoint Center in Blue Mountain Beach, Big Daddy’s Bike Shop offers a large selection of new bikes to purchase from TREK, KONA and Electra like the ever popular Electra Townie Beach Cruiser for strolling local beach communities to high end aluminum and carbon framed road bikes for the cycling enthusiast to Electric Bikes for commuting longer stretches of the 30A Bike Path.
Nestled between a bakery (La Loba Bakery) and a health food store (For The Health Of It), this is a must see bike shop. Stepping into Big Daddy’s you are greeted by their friendly and knowledgeable staff who are ready to talk about the latest in the Bicycle Industry to the hot new cycling accessory to the best local places to ride.
Need your bike serviced? Look no further. Big Daddy’s boast a full service repair center staffed with skilled and certified mechanics. These guys are ready to change your flats, tune up your ride, perform a fitting, clean your drivetrain or tell you the highlights of their Wednesday night mountain bike ride (Yes, you’re invited and you should go).
Big Daddy’s also host a top notch rental fleet of 400 bikes featuring Beach Cruisers, Aluminum and Carbon Road Bikes, Hard-tail and Full-Suspension Mountain Bikes, Hybrids, Electric Bikes, kid bikes and attachments to pull kids, toys and critters. In addition to new bikes and rental bikes, they also have the latest in cycling and outdoor fashion and accessories. When visiting the South Walton area, go see Big Daddy’s! Tourist and locals are still jumping at the opportunity to park their car and ride bikes from Big Daddy’s.
