Farewell Blake, Hello Val!

Farewell and congratulations to our Shop Manager, Blake Boesen.

It is with much gratitude and best wishes that Full Cycle says good bye to its magnificent, magical, mild-mannered manager, Blake Boesen.  Over the past three years Blake has used his vast knowledge of bikes and mechanics, along with his business skills to bring Full Cycle to a new level as a social enterprise bike shop.  Under Blake’s management Full Cycle was able to surpass a six figure earned income strategy and has never looked back.  Money earned through Full Cycle’s bike shop largely supports the programming we can offer to young people experiencing homelessness.  Surpassing this income goal was a milestone we were proud to reach.  In addition to his successful business strategies, Blake’s kindness, mellow energy, and willingness to listen made him a great teacher and role model to the young folks we work with.  Blake’s knowledge, patience, and attention to detail earned him much respect from Full Cycle co-workers and customers who continue to come back and support our shop.

While Blake is already missed here at Full Cycle, we are very proud that he will continue to support the cycling industry in different capacity in his new job.  We are grateful for the time, energy, passion and commitment Blake brought to us that resulted in meaningful relationships, experiences and a better bike shop business.

Thanks Blake, see you on the trail!


Welcome to our new Shop Manager!

The snow is gone and the busy bike season is upon us.  Full Cycle is excited to announce our very own Valerie Scheffler is taking on the role of Shop Manger– just in time!  Formerly FC Assistant Manager, Val has hit the ground running in her new position and we’re already getting a sense of what she’s bringing to the table–attention to detail, new opportunities for our interns, and continued consistency and thoughtfulness– and of course excellent service!  We are lucky to have her work at Full Cycle in this new capacity and are excited to support her as she moves into this next leg of her career.

Cheers Val!
