About Us

Meet Our Dedicated Team

When you own and manage a local bike shop, your people are more important than the bikes you sell.  Your staff are the first impression, they are your reputation in the community.  I am proud of our staff and here are a few of them (…the rest are too shy):

Favorite Rides: Love road riding, fat biking, mt. biking, and urban cruising What I love most about my job: Working in the cycling industry for 30 plus years has been most enjoyable for me because of the people I have met. Cycling is a high energy, fun filled sport that everyone at one point in their life participates in and they have the stories to prove it. Typically all customers are happy and enjoy the shopping experience. Who doesn't want to get a new bike?
