About us

Don Grenda started Hobby Wheel downtown Ironwood, Michigan in 1976.  In 1988, Mark Fitting purchased the business, then two years later he moved the store to the highway.  Mark's son, Eric, expanded the business in 2005 by opening the sister store HW Rider at Indianhead Mountain Ski Resort.  Eric later took over the full business in 2011. With the support of each of you, we have expanded into four store fronts and a website. 

All of us here at the Hobby Wheel say Thank You very much for your business, we greatly appreciate it. 

We are working to transform the area by creating an outdoor recreational haven with weekly group snowshoe walks, group cross country ski rides, mountain bike rides, and more.

I would also like to take a quick moment to thank all of the staff here at the Hobby Wheel. You see, for someone looking at this business from afar it would appear probably as any other business, but the staff that work here are really much more than that. They truly are amazing in their own unique ways. Even though they are all different in many ways they all work together with sacrifice and dedication to make this business successful. This business would not be successful without them. Thank you!

Stop by and say "Hi" to the crew at Hobby Wheel.  We are happy to help you find the perfect equipment for your next outdoor adventure!
