Joe Sylvia.jpg


Joe has loved bikes since he was a little boy in the UK.  He raced and built his bikes in his teen years, loving the freedom it gave him.  His dream was to always own his own shop.  He chose a path in the culinary arts after school, and slaved to the kitchen for almost 20 years before calling it quits, shortly after his & Christine's first daughter was born. 

He then started working in a bike shop in Victoria, which started the momentum for us to take the reins of North Park in 2003, shortly after it opened and right after their second daughter was born.

He rocks Candy Crush, loves fixing things and solving quirky problems. He likes crocheting doilies and selling them at church bazaars.

His loves: coffee, good chocolate, reading, his dogs and family, watching planes at the airport (but not flying!), documentaries
