Chris McCauley

I fell in love with cycling seven years ago to improve my health and gain my independence back. Starting working at the bike shop completely turned my world around and opened up so many new doors for me. You'll always find me at the bench working or eager to help customers. My favorite type of cycling is road cycling with a little bit of gravel rides every now and then, and yes I do have an e-bike. Let's have an e-bike race!
