Meghan is biking

MEGHAN  Mechanic and Sales Associate

While I do ride the roads and trails a lot, I've always had a heart for riding my bike for transportation—starting when I was a kid riding to school to an adult riding my bike to work. My passion is to get people back out on their bikes; whichever bikes those might be. My bike adventures have taken me from the mountains of Tahoe to the beaches of Maui. I love to be on two wheels, exploring new ways of getting from point A to point B. I'm always excited to see what the next big thing will be. For now, it's enjoying the PNW!

SCOTT   Mechanic

Scott grew up working on motorcycles which evolved into careers in Automotive R&D, Product Development, and Aeronautical Engineering.  He has 

come full circle back to twisting wrenches at The Broken Spoke. He rides road and MTB enjoying both. He is happiest being active outside, exploring, and appreciating the natural beauty of our area.

Alexander  Sales Associate and Beginner Mechanic

Hello, my name is Alexander and I am a Chimacum high school senior. I am athletic and enjoy to play football and run track. I also enjoy to do a variety of outdoor recreation including bike riding. In the field of bike riding what I specifically enjoy to do is mountain biking. The reason I decided to reach out to The Broken Spoke for a job is because I wanted to learn more about bikes and the community.
