Gulf Coast Cycle and Tri (GCCT) was founded by Patrick Wilkes in 2013. A Pensacola native and a life long cycle enthusiast, Patrick began working on bicycles at a young age where he honed his mechanic skills and knowledge, allowing him to eventually grow into one of the Gulf Coast's leading experts in everything cycle related.
His love and enjoyment of cycling led him to open his own Local Bike Shop (LBS). Although Patrick saw the need for a Triathlon specific shop in the marketplace, GCCT can handle anything bike related from cyclocross to mountain biking, from professional bike fitting to simple tire repairs, and from bike accessories to nutrition/hydration.
Since GCCT is the only Tri Shop in Pensacola and the surrounding areas, Patrick and his Staff are helping Triathletes daily by sharing advice through actual training and race experience that other shops simply can't provide. The Staff has the ability to properly fit Customers on Tri specific bikes and can also help with Tri specific swimwear and Tri specific run gear. This level of expertise, knowledge, and service has made GCCT the leading choice for Cyclist and Triathletes alike. Through hard work, dedication, and honesty, GCCT has become the #1 choice for everyone from the Beginner Cyclist, to the Weekend Warrior, to the Athlete standing atop the Podium on race day!
