The pace is fast, the customers are curious, and having an all-for-one, customer-centric team mentality is huge. We value hospitality skills first, and we'd rather hire someone who's eager to learn than someone who thinks they know it all. If you're already a bike expert, that's awesome. If not, we'll train you. The key is that you know how to treat customers, evaluate their needs, and exceed their expectations.

What you'll bring to the team


  • A positive, pitch-right-in attitude and motivation to help every customer find what they need
