Since I was 15 years old, I have worked in the cycling industry. I’ve seen every aspect of the business, from repairs, to customer service, and even being a national sales representative. At the end of the day, though, I found that my passion was truly found in helping people love bicycles. That is why I founded Bicycle John’s – to share the joy of cycling with as many people as I can.

I opened the first Bicycle John’s and I still run the original store that has gained an impressive reputation throughout Southern California, while still being a familiar spot where local cyclists can come. As the passion behind Bicycle John’s began to catch on with more people, I have brought others into the business by empowering them to start their own franchise stores and bring the joy of cycling to even more people.

I believe that the simple joy of riding a bike can be enjoyed by anyone. Whether you commute to work, ride around town on the weekends, or are an avid cyclist, we want to help you have the best possible time on your bike. That’s why I named my shop “Serious Cycling” -  to demonstrate how seriously I take my customers and value their experience.
