It is said that some people were raised by wolves. Shawn was raised by bicycles (…and parents). A highly skilled mechanic, Shawn has worked in bicycle shops since he was a young boy. Shawn doesn’t only have a penchant for fixing bikes, however. In fact, he is passionate about all kinds of riding and racing. Shawn raced collegiately for NC State University (mountain, road, and cyclocross), where he was president of the cycling club and captain of the road and mountain bike teams. He’s promoted and organized races, taught numerous maintenance clinics, and wrenched for professional major races in the US and Canada. Shawn is also trained in the BG FIT method. As manager of the Bicycle Gallery, Shawn’s goal is to spread the joy of cycling and racing to the Jacksonville community. He is especially interested in developing high school and youth cycling programs, starting locally and expanding into a regional program. In addition to cycling, Shawn enjoys running and snowboarding.
