1: What got you into bicycles?

I was turned onto cycling from a good friend back in 2008. I initially rode a fixed gear for fun and snowballed to where I am today (mostly riding road).

2: What was your first bike?

A Specialized Langster steel bike.

3: What gets you out of bed every day?

Riding with good people and putting in miles for my own self-care.

4: What is your favorite type of bike riding and why?

Road cycling. I'm not great on the dirt, but I'm great at suffering on a sustained climb.

5: What made you want to be part of Incycle Bicycles?

Initially, it was my infatuation with bikes and the allure of learning about other cycling disciplines I didn't know. I also had a friend already working at the shop that told me I would enjoy it.

6: Describe your best day on a bike.

I'm guessing this means my ideal ride? It would be 70-degree weather (cloudy), a good climb, good people, and a good lunch stop at the end of the ride.

7: Where do you see the future of Bicycles?

This question is difficult for me to answer at this moment. I've been with Incycle since December 2012 and have stood around for the obvious reason that I enjoy working for Incycle. It is a place I have developed my work ethic, skills, customer service, and integrity to a new level. It is a place I have made life-long friends, both on and off the bike. It is also a place where I learned a company does have real people in it that can run a successful business while wearing their emotions on their sleeves and convey that to their employees. Incycle has done a lot for me, which makes me want to do a lot for Incycle. I just finished my BS degree in mechanical engineering. Initially, I had promised myself to remain with Incycle for at least a year following my degree's completion. But I have been questioning my career path since before COVID, and with the recent bike boom, it would be silly to leave at this time. I'm going to ride this wave and see where things take me. I constantly try to think as far in the future as possible but cannot find myself to answer this question indefinitely. It's safe to say I will be with Incycle to hit my 10-year mark and will reflect again then (sorry for the long answer, but I felt a longer response was needed for this one lol).

8: How do you support the local cycling community?

I feel we all support the community just by working at Incycle during a pandemic. Before COVID though, I would lead (with Brian's assistance) a weekly night ride to make friends and customers feel more comfortable with the store. I also try my best to assist with Incycle sponsored club functions. This would include staying after hours for club nights, getting to the shop early to open the store for a club ride before they leave, etc.

1: What got you into bicycles?   

Watching my dad ride all the time when I was growing up and watching the X-Games, Tour De France and anything bike related! I was absolutely fixated with bikes from a very young age

2: What was your first bike?   

Chrome Dyno VFR 20 inch BMX, I had bikes before but this is the most memorable 

3: What gets you out of bed every day?

My wife and family, I want to be the best husband and provide for my family. 

4: What is your favorite type of bike riding and why? 

I love trail riding, big travel bikes, I also love road riding, I ride with my dad every Saturday!

5: What made you want to be part of Incycle Bicycles?

I have been coming to Incycle ever since I was a 13 year old BMX kid and never left, I would hang out at the shop all the time and bug the guys at the chino store. Once I was old enough to work Dom gave me a job.

6: Describe your best day on a bike.

One specific day or what is required to make it the best day on a bike? Any ride with my family or friends is enjoyable, some epic centuries with my dad down HWY 1 and some seriously epic days at a bike park, Mammoth, Summit and North Star with the boys!

7: Where do you see the future of Bicycles? 

 It is going to continue to grow and bikes are going to just get better and better, E-bikes are growing at an amazing rate and we all know that will continue. Hopefully this increase in customers during Corona Virus means new riders for generations. Bikes are such an amazing way to release stress and just enjoy being outdoors and also to push yourself as an athlete. 

8: How do you support the local cycling community?

Working at a shop is a big influence, we educate people on a daily basis informing them on all bike related needs. Trail building from time to time at our local trails. Just being a positive influence on our community in general is important, I try to make people like cyclists in all encounters with the public.
