Meet The Staff

Introducing some of the hardest working people in the Bicycle Industry!

Chris Fernandez
Owner

Who needs an introduction when you own the place!

Alex ‘Chiggy’ Chetwynd
Manager

In his own words, Chiggy has no idea as to where his nickname came from but only his wife, his mother and the Bank call him Alex anymore. Chiggy recently graduated from Oxford Brookes University in England with a bachelors degree in Sports Science. After moving to the States, Chiggy has moved from road racing to triathlon and is hoping to complete an Iron Man race in 2015. He joined us in June 2014 and hasn’t looked back a day since!

Gerry believes that a bicycle is the best way to get out and see the world as it’s fun healthy and contemplative. He loves to share his experiences with others and help them discover the joys of cycling.

Scotty Hernandez
Service Department

One time Scotty had a stare off with the trials rider Danny McAskill and Danny caught fire. Scotty has worked at bike shops all across the states including California and Minnesota. Scotty’s trail carving is as sharp as his wits, or he likes to think so! He’s been riding since 1992 and doesn’t plan to stop until 26” tires are unavailable for his bike.

Ryan Dyke

Ryan recently graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Spanish. During his time at UF he raced for Team Florida and now has a Cat 3 racing license. An interesting fact about Ryan: In 1996 as a high schooler, he ran himself over with his own car when he was trying to push it home after it broke down. Stay on your bike Ryan!
