Owner / Mechanic
Aaron Paterson opened Storrs Center Cycle in 2010, returning to the bike industry after a hiatus spent earning a masters degree in political science from the University of Connecticut. A lifelong resident of Storrs, Aaron has been riding the roads and trails of the area for decades. He started tinkering with bikes before he was 10 years old and found his first job as a bicycle mechanic at the age of 16. Now well into his thirties, Aaron is still tinkering with bikes and building wheels with a meticulous attention to detail and methodology and close to 20 years experience on the job. While he enjoys all kinds of riding, his passion is for mountain biking and when not in the shop you can usually find him out on the local trails.
