'm 54 years old and I've loved bikes my whole life. I've worked with bicycles off and on since I was 15, from little mom & pop shops to some of the biggest players in the industry. I like to think of myself as a bicycle industry "hanger-on" and I try not to take myself too seriously. It's only a bike, after all!  

The reason I love the Bicycle Collective here in Utah, as well as all the other non-profit bike outfits on the planet, is that they remind me of the reasons I learned to love bikes in the first place. Riding my bike to work at my first job. Riding with friends. Learning how to fix bikes. Exploring new places. In my life, bikes have always meant personal freedom and I'm here to share that message. Bikes are for everyone, regardless a person's level of fitness, income or station in life. You may be riding your bike to your local library or you might be racing in the Tour de France, but goal is exactly the same. Keep the rubber side down!
