I was born in: Lexington, KY 

My Inspiration:

My wife inspires me.  She is pretty amazing and easily the hardest worker I have ever known. She gives 100% to pretty much anything she does; she is an amazing mother and wonderful wife, all the while currently getting her PHD.  

My hopes and dreams with Bicycle Face:

I want to bring all the facets of the cycling community closer.  It would be wonderful if commuters, roadies, MTB’ers, Triatheletes and any other cycling groups had a place they felt they could come and enjoy the company of others with an affinity for bikes.  

Words I live by:

Ride bikes, drink beer, and always cherish family and good friends! 

Darrell

Bar Manager

Service and Sales

I was born in:
Huntington, West “by-gawd” Virginia, and raised across the bridge in Ashland, Kentucky.

My inspiration is:
My grandfather. He taught me how to work with machines and the land, and how to work with what you have available.

My thoughts about BicycleFace:
A bike shop with a bar inside it... What more could I ask for?!?!?

What are my hopes for BicycleFace:

I hope to see Bicycle Face flooding the streets of Lexington with bicycles, to promote a healthy environment and lifestyle.

What I like/love about the shop:
Watching a clients eyes light up the first time they ride a bike that I helped them find, or seeing bikes that I have built while out in downtown. It is rewarding work. Catching up with clients at The Drop Bar every weekend is always fun.

Clay:

Co-Owner
“Consultant”

I was born in: Lexington, KY

My inspiration:

Personally, I am passionate about health and wellness, and I am probably a little competitive, too.  I always loved to ride my bike as a kid, and rediscovered it with a passion in my late 30’s. Cycling has changed my life.  I am excited to be a part of the cycling community, and I am proud to have helped develop and be a part of the Think Green cycling team.  Currently, I race mountain bikes and road bikes, and I make it a point to be in the saddle nearly every day, no matter where I am. 

My hopes and dreams with Bicycle Face:

To me, it is truly better to give than to receive. I want this shop to be community resource, meeting place, and a destination! Positivity, excellence and philanthropy are extremely important to me, and I hope that we are able to promote that message, along with an avid love and appreciation of all types of cycling with our bike shop!

Words I live by:

Never quit … because, usually, the others will.

My Inspiration:

My family!  We are a quirky, tightknit group, and I am absolutely dedicated!!   We’ve been through a lot, together, and I am so very proud of how we all have grown and accomplished throughout the years.  They are truly my inspiration! 

My hopes and dreams with Bicycle Face:

I am excited to be a part of a progressive, forward-thinking bike shop that supports and encourages all ages, types of riding, for all types of people.  I hope we can continue to partner with our growing and diverse community to spread the joy of riding and a healthy life, and be a part of spreading more laughter and happiness in our community’s daily lives!

Taylor:

Service Manager

Bike & Skateboard Sales

I was born in: Mt. Sterling, KY

My inspiration:

While most kids were just learning to ride a bike, Taylor started motor cross racing at 4 years old!!  He also pursued a degree in filmography, documenting daring biking and racing feats on film. He found his way into a bike shop with Jack, and there has been no going back – after several trainings, hours on the job, and certifications, he has developed into an extremely knowledgeable bicycle Technician and overall bike consultant.  Bikes have always been a huge part of his life, and he has clearly excelled in competition. 

My hopes and dreams with Bicycle Face:

Excited to be back in the biking scene and excited to be downtown

Words I live by:

In life, you’re along for the ride either way.  You might as well make it fun!

Robert:

Bike and Skateboard Sales
Bike Service Expert
Unicycle Consultant

I was born in: Lexington, KY

My inspiration:  
Bicycles have long been an important part of Robert’s life.  Robert was a sponsored rider by Lexington’s Dodd’s Cycling and BMX bikes in the mid-1980’s, which led not only to his father’s eventual purchase of the bike shop but also his first job. An interesting fact about Robert is that he rode his off-road unicycle in the Mt Everest region of Nepal for 6 weeks in 1996 – pretty cool!! 

Not only is he is an amazing technician and knows about everything about bikes – he is an absolute sincere gem!  

Robert’s thoughts about Bicycle Face: Happy to be a part of a new paradigm and a new cultural hub and community of cyclists.  

Words I live by:  

Be true to yourself and Be with the flow.

Scott

Bike Sales and Service

I was born in: Long Island, New York

My Inspiration/History:

Started riding bikes 10 years ago in 2008, when I bought an old Ross 3 speed.  Soon thereafter, I got a bit more serious and purchased a 1987 Schwinn LeTour off of a buddy and put 2000 miles on it before I moved onto my first modern road bike, a Surly Pacer.  Now, my go-to bike is a Surly Cross Check, because I can go anywhere on it!

Why I am part of the Bicycle Face Team:  

After working with Jack and Taylor at Pedal the Planet, I decided to go back to school.  I was working at a paint shop, during the interim. After coming into Bicycle Face and with some prodding from my wife, Kamila, I decided to get back into the bicycle business.  It’s been a great choice!!
