My first bicycle related job was at age fourteen delivering groceries on an over sized "butcher's bike" to the good people of Hanford, Stoke-on-Trent. This gave me an introduction to the utility of the bicycle. After a few years of motorcycle madness I returned to bicycles in the 1980s as a messenger in London.
I have been riding a bike for about as long as I could stand. My Schwinn Stingray was an eye opener to the freedom and adventure that a bicycle could deliver, even at 6 years old. My first bike shop job was in 1987, working summers while going to college.
I've been in bicycle sales since 2011 but most of my experience and knowledge comes from just being a cyclist. I pretty much ride only one bike. It's an upright, step-through bike built by Hanford Cycles. It has an 8 speed internally geared hub and is kitted out with front rack, Danish brass bell, dyno hub, and a rear basket for my dog Archie...a city commuter's dream!
