David Carleton - Partner

After retiring from a career in law enforcement, David trained and handled explosive detection dogs for the US State department. While at home on vacation he was at a local gym working out and saw a flyer for a duathlon. David went home and told his wife about it and she proceeded to inform him that he didn’t own a bike. The rest is history. David worked for several Trek retailers and knew that he wanted his own shop. David took what he learned from those shop owners and based his bike shop philosophy on what he learned from them. David says, “We are as passionate about bicycles as you are.”

Juan Florez - Partner

Originally from Colombia, South America, Juan is retired from Corporate America, where he spent his career in international business, working in the banking industry and later working many years for foreign multinational companies.
An avid cyclist most of his life, Juan started cycling in the mountains of Colombia, where he learned how to climb the big mountains before moving to the United States in the 1980s. His passion for cycling consists mostly of road and gravel riding.

Joe Penley - Service Manager

Joe's love for cycling was found in high school in Alabama through the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). He raced and wrenched while attending college on scholarship at Lees-McRae College in beautiful Banner Elk, NC. You can mainly Joe riding on the road or gravel circuit now, but he still enjoys getting out on the mountain bike. Joe's favorite way to spend a day on the bike involves coffee, a good group, and of course town line sprints :).

He backed away from racing in 2014 and now focuses his pent-up drive into the "Swag" group rides he leads. Tim retired from the nine-to-five work grind a few years ago, and Cabarrus Cycling talked him into a part-time gig at the shop! Tim loves cycling and is passionate about getting folks on bikes! Whether it's the recreational rider or the full-gas racer, he can recommend that perfect bike just for you! He rides hard but appreciates nothing more than good friends, family, cocktails and of course his greyhound, Demi!

John Bickford - Sales

John works in the NASCAR Diecast and Toy Train business selling toys. When he is not at Cabarrus Cycling selling bikes, he’s outside riding road, MTB or gravel. He began cycling while stationed in Germany in the late 1980’s and gave it up when he came back stateside.  Fast forward to 2015 when his wife Tina convinced him to get a bike and ride again.  To this day he is still chasing her…
