It. is. exhausting!
...to find someone skilled and passionate enough to perform fits at a level of quality Velopez can be proud of. We are so super excited to have only the second fitter to make the cut: Welcome Shannon! She is officially live on the website and you can book a fit with her today.
An introduction in her own words:
I'm Shannon Leigh. I live bikes, and love sharing that passion! I grew up in the Seattle area and have always loved the outdoors. I started biking as a commuter and got a job at a bike shop while going to school for Environmental Studies. Well, I fell head over heels for the cycling world- took up distance road riding, bike-touring, gravel grinding, tried out cyclocross, and got deep into the dirt with mountain biking. I love it all! I'm happiest on two wheels. By the way - a proper fit is a game-changer for all of these disciplines!
A turning point in my riding was the first time I got my bike fit to me; I had no idea I could ride for hours without pain in my knees, and I almost instantly was holding a higher speed for longer time. I have had the honor of helping other people realize how a bike fit can improve comfort and performance for several years now. Two of my favorite comments I have received as feedback from riders I fit; "I rode 8 miles with my family to get ice cream, I never thought I would be able to do that!" and "Wow, I had no idea it was possible to accelerate UP a hill!" I am certified through Bike Fit and SBCU and learn something new from every person I help fit.
I love making people happy on their bikes! That's why I am so excited to be part of the Velopez Bike Fit team; we all share a passion for bikes and for enhancing other riders' experiences.
I look forward to helping you improve your cycling experience!
