NICOLE Office Manager
Nicole moved to Port Townsend in April of 2009. She was involved with Jefferson Trails Coalition (Peninsula Trails Coalition- that cool group involved in the Olympic Discovery Trail and the Larry Scott Trail!), and the Rhody Run Board, and Port Townsend Bicycle Association. She's been leading women's rides since the spring of 2011 and hopes they continue indefinitely. She was a League of American Bicyclist Certified Instructor (LCI) and has volunteered with the Jefferson County Parks and Recreation Department, YMCA and Blue Heron Middle School to teach "bicycle safety and adventures!" She loves biking and would love to share a ride with you.
Dan strolled in one day and demanded a job as a mechanic. He proved himself worthy, patient, understanding, and full of wit. Dan loves biking to work, and loves to bake treats. Come by to hear any of his great stories, or see him turning a wrench.
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!
HENRY Sales Associate
Ever since he went on his first mountain bike ride in seventh grade he has been hooked. He has wanted to work at The Broken Spoke since freshman year in high school, when he first started to break bike parts. He enjoys biking because it is fast, and a lot of fun to do stupid things and come out alright (most of the time). He loves talking about and working on bikes, and is always curious about the latest tech.
I grew up in Oregon, but landed in the shores of Port Townsend as a child sailing around the nearby islands with my family. Showing up 40 years later, I decided that I really like this place. As someone who’s lived all over the US, I think PT is exceptional in many ways, and I’m happy to be here promoting cycling and helping those that believe bikes are a means of sustaining PT as the special place it currently is.
