Meet your Mechanic
Francesca has been cycling as long as she can remember, with some of her earliest memories being performing “tricks” on her tricycle for her parents at 3 years old! She enjoys any and all types of riding – road, mountain, antique bicycles (ask her about her 1887 Penny Farthing,) to fixed gears and fun, casual city bikes. Francesca started to realize how much she loved cycling when she was re-introduced in college. She worked for an outdoors shop that carried bikes, and quickly moved to specific bicycle shops and never looked back. Francesca has been in the cycling industry on and off since then, for 10 years. She has worked at a wide range of bike shops, directly for bike manufacturers, and after a return to the “real world” aka an office job, she decided it was time to stick with bikes for good!
When not riding, Francesca enjoys being outdoors as much as possible. She loves taking her dog, Campy, mountain biking, trail running, and hiking. She also enjoys soccer, climbing, camping, kayaking, traveling, and socializing when she can in her down time.
