About Bike Shop Girl

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.

Career Highlights

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
