Its a mix of passion and obsession that’s brought me back into the cycling industry after a couple years trying different career paths. I started in a bike shop almost 10 years ago; learning, wrenching, selling bikes, organizing rides, and trying to race as I could. When I headed off to college I found myself hanging out at the local bike shop once again, and once again wrenching, riding, and selling bikes. I couldn’t escape it.
Going to college makes you want to do irrational things. Like go off and get a corporate job to bump elbows with the big wigs and keep up with the Jones’. So I did that. And it sucked. After bouncing around for a while in the event industry and advertising/marketing world, I found myself back in Minneapolis and back into the bike community.
I’m happy to be back working at a bike shop, and not simply “a bike shop”, but a bike shop that is filled with employees and customers that are as passionate and obsessed about this silly activity and lifestyle as I am.
Lets ride bikes.
No, seriously. Get over here and lets go ride.
