Welcome to Bike Shop Girl, where I am empowering women to bike more and worry less.
I’m Arleigh and the founder of Bike Shop Girl. I have spent most of my life immersed in the bicycle industry with over 15+ years as a master bicycle mechanic, and fitter. In 2008, I started Bike Shop Girl as I quickly realized there weren’t many women in bike shops to help answer women’s questions and give real-life reviews of products from a women’s perspective. A decade and two kids later, my focus is still very much on empowering women (and families!) to bike more and worry less.
With over 15+ years of bicycle industry experience here are a few career highlights:
• Pro mechanic for the 24-hour solo mountain bike women’s World Champion
• Neutral support mechanic at Speedweek Crit races for both men and women’s races
• SRAM suspension field rep
• Serotta Fit Certified
• Trek PrecisionFit Level II Certified
• BikeDenver Board Member
