"I’d like to say that I’ve been in love with the bicycle ever since the trainings wheels came off but I honestly don’t think I ever owned a bike with training wheels. I do remember being pushed up to speed and then wobbling until I learned how to keep my hands and knees off the asphalt. Different folks benefit in different ways from cycling. Some like the social aspect or the adrenaline rush of competition, but I’ve always relied on the power of cycling to help me better hear the voice within. Someone once said that the best ride is one that takes your mind to a place it’s never been before. I tend to agree." James rides a 1980's Mongusta road bike.

Taiya - Sales
Who is Taiya? One rumor has it she spent years working as a Russian spy and an assassin, and has come here to escape her many enemies. Another theory is that she was dropped on this planet 26 years ago by a strange alien ship to complete her mission of conquering the planet. There are some who believe she descended from Thor himself, and she is the only one capable of wielding the mighty Mjolnir.
All we can know for sure is that she has two feline cohorts, Stormageddon and Shadowfax, she hates mayonnaise, and she occasionally fumbles around on the bass guitar.
Taiya rides a Giant Avail and a Giant Tempt.

Brian - Mechanic
This is Brian. Brian was born in 1793, just 6 years after the signing of the Constitution. Coincidence? You tell me. You might be asking yourself, why would we hire someone who is 225 years old? Experience, that’s why. Brian was around for the first bicycle, so he knows a thing or two. No one is better suited to fix your bike than a 225-year-old mechanic. Would you trust some lame 25-year-old to do it? In his free time Brian enjoys exploring all that this majestic country has to offer, from the Pacific Northwest, to living in a car in Colorado, to the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia from where he came. He also loves watching soccer and spending time with his awesome significant other as well as his significant Otter, a goofy yet loveable 6-year old black lab. Rumor has it that if you bring him quesadillas he will be super happy and grateful that you brought him one, no free work or anything, he is just usually hungry for one.
