Wayne has always had an enquiring mind. It wants to know how things work. So at a tender age he began taking things apart to figure them out. However, the grass still had to get cut, so things also had to get put back together. And he has never looked back. He enjoys a mechanical challenge, and the bicycle industry keeps innovating to keep the grey cells active!
He has been in the local bicycle industry since 1982. Like many mechanically adept people, Wayne has a strong artistic side to balance out the logical side. You may have seen some of his work on past t-shirts and posters from races we have hosted, or on advertisements on posters and local papers. He is also an excellent trail builder; many of the local trails have the Wayne’s World stamp on them. When not working on bikes, riding them, or making a better place to ride them in, you’ll find him out walking the dogs, or woodworking, drawing, or cheering on the Canucks.
At the shop since 1989 Pam does everything except mechanical work (as the shop is full of great mechanics), she keeps the business humming.
Pam is responsible for the excellent selection of clothing; coming from a racing and commuting background she realized early on the importance of proper cycling wear and saw a need for better selection in Victoria.
Apart from riding, currently road, commute, and ‘cross, Pam is fond of disappearing into the back-country with her good friends and a back-pack. With family spread around the world, her love of travel is easier to accommodate.
When not working, Pam enjoys gardening and is a marvelous cook, although she is just as likely to be found hiking with the dogs. Pam has worked hard over the years in the community to support cycling related initiatives and continues to work diligently to give our customers the best service possible.

For Tsuni’s many friends; our greeter passed after a long happy life in 2012. We all miss her smile, but her spirit lives on.
Fuligin Woodman (Woody)
The newest member of the staff is a newly arrived German Shepherd puppy whose only duties thus far are to be incredibly cute (handsome also works) and to harass Tsuni. In time, our Chief Mastication Officer will share greeting duties with an aging Tsuni.
