About Zen Bikes
Zen Bikes was built on the principles of personal service, honesty, integrity and respect for our customers. Using what my wife Maria and I saved, begged, and borrowed; we opened our doors in April of 2010. Now each person that walks into our shop is a potential friend and partner in our growth. We often end a bicycle transaction with a “Welcome to the family!” and sometimes a toast to your new purchase. Stop by, ask questions and test our philosophy and you’ll see why we love people and people love us!
John & Maria + The Zen Bikes Staff
For as long as I’ve worked at bike shops, customers have always asked me if I was the owner; I would humbly answer “No, I'm just the Manager”. So, what drove me to work so hard? Simply put, it was the satisfaction of seeing a customer who was happy with their purchase and the service I provided that no one else could. Thus, I always took the question as a compliment and dreamt of the day that I would run my very own bike shop.
After fourteen years of working for others, the opportunity arrived; and with a lot of sacrifice, some begging, some borrowing and with a bunch of convincing my wife—here we are. It started with a name and a philosophy; “ZEN” to me best describes the experience of riding any bike. Here at Zen Bikes we set a mood and create an environment that makes the buying experience reflect an ideal of fun, and also an environment of learning & rider development.
