Hello! This is Mike & Jenn and they are taking over the shop from Don.
Most of you met Mike last summer when he started working with Don. It is not Mike's first foray into the world of bicycle repair. He started racing when he was 14 years old and worked on his own bikes. In university, he rode for Guelph's Olympiad Cycling Team and worked for a man named George Vettor, an avid cyclist who opened his shop Vettor Cycling and Sport in 1969. Mike spent a few years there building and repairing bikes while training under George for the team. After university, Mike continued to ride, racing for charity as well as riding for pleasure, and continued to work on his own bicycles.
After re-training with Don - apprenticing to update his knowledge and gain more experience - Mike is more than ready to take on the problems London cyclists are having with their bikes and trikes.
And many of you met Jenn this past fall. Jenn was an avid cyclist in her teens and rode for pleasure through much of her twenties and thirties, working on her own bikes whenever she could, thanks to Mike's tutelage in high school. She was a stay-at-home mom for close to 25 years. Her youngest is now about to graduate university and Jenn is ready for the challenges of helping run a business entails.
Together, they are a formidable team with a dream of making sure every bike that comes into their shop leaves in much better shape than it arrived and every customer is happy. They looking forward to seeing you!
Meet Rob! He is our new mechanic (and boy, do we need one!). He comes to us from ToWheels, where he worked for more than twenty years assembling, repairing and tuning bikes.
He loves learning new technology and is familiar with all types of bikes. Rob has a lifetime of cycling-for-pleasure under his belt, riding with his wife and family. He’s even cycled internationally! We are pleased to have him with us.
