The Chainlink

Professionals' Corner

Welcome to The Chainlink's Professionals' Corner! In this on-going series, we'll feature local shop owners, mechanics, organizers and other cycling celebrities in the community. We hope you enjoy these glimpses into their lives and learning about what makes them tick. After you read their interviews, be sure to say hi!

We're on the lookout for more hidden gems of the community. If you have someone you'd like to nominate for a future Professional's Corner, email
