I was born in: Lexington, KY

My Inspiration:

My wife inspires me.  She is pretty amazing and easily the hardest worker I have ever known. She gives 100% to pretty much anything she does; she is an amazing mother and wonderful wife, all the while currently getting her PHD.  

My hopes and dreams with Bicycle Face:

I want to bring all the facets of the cycling community closer.  It would be wonderful if commuters, roadies, MTB’ers, Triatheletes and any other cycling groups had a place they felt they could come and enjoy the company of others with an affinity for bikes.  

Words I live by:

Ride bikes, drink beer, and always cherish family and good friends!

Jack:

General Manager
Master Technician
Bar keep/Food Manager

I was born in: Lexington, KY

My Inspiration:

I love to ride morning just after sunrise when the dew is still on the ground and the air still smells fresh with the wind calm.  There is a peace to that time of day. There is so much noise in normal day-to-day life that some early morning wind in the ears helps clear the mind for the day ahead.   I can’t imagine not riding, whether it’s commuting, racing, long road rides, mountain biking, it doesn’t matter as long as there are pedals and two wheels, it’s always good!

My hopes and dreams with Bicycle Face:

Butts on bikes!  Getting a new rider on their first bike that is made to last or rekindling a flame in someone who used to ride is what I look forward to, every day.  Helping someone get into a life long sport, and solving really difficult service problems is a lot of fun and the challenge is enjoyable!

Butts on Bikes … what good can I do, today?

Clay:

Co-Owner
“Consultant”

I was born in: Lexington, KY

My inspiration:

Personally, I am passionate about health and wellness, and I am probably a little competitive, too.  I always loved to ride my bike as a kid, and rediscovered it with a passion in my late 30’s. Cycling has changed my life.  I am excited to be a part of the cycling community, and I am proud to have helped develop and be a part of the Think Green cycling team.  Currently, I race mountain bikes and road bikes, and I make it a point to be in the saddle nearly every day, no matter where I am.

My hopes and dreams with Bicycle Face:

To me, it is truly better to give than to receive. I want this shop to be community resource, meeting place, and a destination! Positivity, excellence and philanthropy are extremely important to me, and I hope that we are able to promote that message, along with an avid love and appreciation of all types of cycling with our bike shop!

Words I live by:

Never quit … because, usually, the others will.

I am excited to be a part of a progressive, forward-thinking bike shop that supports and encourages all ages, types of riding, for all types of people.  I hope we can continue to partner with our growing and diverse community to spread the joy of riding and a healthy life, and be a part of spreading more laughter and happiness in our community’s daily lives!

Taylor:

Bike & Skateboard Sales
Bike Technician
Beer Barkeep

I was born in: Mt. Sterling, KY

My inspiration:

While most kids were just learning to ride a bike, Taylor started motor cross racing at 4 years old!!  He also pursued a degree in filmography, documenting daring biking and racing feats on film. He found his way into a bike shop with Jack, and there has been no going back – after several trainings, hours on the job, and certifications, he has developed into an extremely knowledgeable bicycle Technician and overall bike consultant.  Bikes have always been a huge part of his life, and he has clearly excelled in competition.

My hopes and dreams with Bicycle Face:

Excited to be back in the biking scene and excited to be downtown

Words I live by:

In life, you’re along for the ride either way.  You might as well make it fun!

Robert:

Bike and Skateboard Sales
Bike Service Expert
Beer Barkeep
Unicycle Consultant

I was born in: Lexington, KY

My inspiration:  
Bicycles have long been an important part of Robert’s life.  Robert was a sponsored rider by Lexington’s Dodd’s Cycling and BMX bikes in the mid-1980’s, which led not only to his father’s eventual purchase of the bike shop but also his first job. An interesting fact about Robert is that he rode his off-road unicycle in the Mt Everest region of Nepal for 6 weeks in 1996 – pretty cool!!

Not only is he is an amazing technician and knows about everything about bikes – he is an absolute sincere gem!  

Robert’s thoughts about Bicycle Face: Happy to be a part of a new paradigm and a new cultural hub and community of cyclists.  

Words I live by:  

Be true to yourself and Be with the flow.

Bike Sales and Service

I was born in: Long Island, New York

My Inspiration/History:

Started riding bikes 10 years ago in 2008, when I bought an old Ross 3 speed.  Soon thereafter, I got a bit more serious and purchased a 1987 Schwinn LeTour off of a buddy and put 2000 miles on it before I moved onto my first modern road bike, a Surly Pacer.  Now, my go-to bike is a Surly Cross Check, because I can go anywhere on it!

Why I am part of the Bicycle Face Team:  

After working with Jack and Taylor at Pedal the Planet, I decided to go back to school.  I was working at a paint shop, during the interim. After coming into Bicycle Face and with some prodding from my wife, Kamila, I decided to get back into the bicycle business.  It’s been a great choice!!
