Over 50 years ago John and Sidney Maxwell founded a company called The Ski Hut, in Wilton Center, as a way to share their family's passion for skiing with the community. In 1983 their son, Jack Maxwell changed our name to Outdoor Sports Center, and moved us to 80 Danbury Road in Wilton. The name and location change was part Jack's dream to share his enthusiasm and philosophy; to help grow and nurture respect for the outdoors by using it as our playground. Today, we are still 100% family owned, many of our staff have been with us for 15 years or more, and we are proud to have customers that can recall our "Ski Hut" heritage.
Our commitment remains to promote a friendly and knowledgeable community, to provide only the best gear and service, and to always promote awareness of outdoor resources through their use as a playground.
Outdoor Sports Center has a very experienced and professional workshop staff. Whether you need a tube and tire change or a complete custom build for your next race, at our bike workshop you are always in good hands. We offer competetive pricing on skilled service for any bike. Minor repairs or tube and tire changes can be performed on the spot and the turn around on a tune-up can be as short as same day. We are proud to have a mechanic on our staff with the highest level of certification a mechanic can hold from the Barnett Bicycle Insitute. He is the only Certified Elite Mechanic in the state of Connecticut, so you can be sure that the level of expertise you are getting is the best available. We are as passionate about riding as our dedicated customers, so we work hard to get you out riding again as soon as possible.

Last year we gave you the top tips and tricks for teaching your children to ride, and this year we want to zero in on making sure they stay safe on the road! The same safety precautions apply whether they are riding in the backyard, local trails, or around the neighborhood streets. When children learn biking safety at a young age, these guidelines become second nature to them, ensuring that they continue to practice safe cycling throughout their lives. We've put together a few of the most important rules to follow to make sure your little cyclists continue to stay safe and have a great time!
