First 30 Days Back in the Bike Shop Saddle
Hit the arrows above to enjoy photos from the past 30 days.
It’s been officially one month since I said goodbye to the ad agency. I am finding my groove back in the bike shop life and I have already have seen a couple successful milestones.
190 miles by bike. This could have been significantly more as I skipped most of last week, and there were a couple days early on that I didn’t track my rides.
Salvagetti has a new website. We launched a revamp of Salvagetti.com as the kick off of new marketing plans.
Successful Labor Day sale. We blew last year’s numbers out of the water.
Enjoying life. I’ve been seeing my wife more, spending a lot less time in the car, slow mornings with the dogs and unwinding my life a bit.
1,000 Posts Brings Me Back to the Bike Shop
My last post on the new Surly Ogre commuter rig was my 1,000 post here in BikeShopGirl.com. 1,000 posts since starting this site in July of 2009 and I find it very fitting as I will be going back in to the bike shop life this coming Monday as the general manager of all things management at Salvagetti Bicycle Workshop here in Denver, Colorado.
As you may remember, I worked for a short bit at Salvagetti helping the owner here and there when we first moved to Denver. Salvagetti wasn’t ready for a GM and so I moved on. A quick stint selling spandex at Pearl Izumi and then a longer stint in the advertising agency world brought me back to center. When the owner of Salvagetti and I started talking a month ago on what he was needing, I knew this was the answer we both needed.
I’m very excited to be at the helm of a couple very amazing shops here in Denver and can’t wait to share the experience with all of you! If you are in Denver, give me a shout and come visit.
