Billy started working at Pedal Power in 1995 and he and his wife, Helga, purchased the shop in 2000. His 21 years of mechanic experience is a daily asset, as Billy continues to dive in and get his hands dirty. He is also a Serotta Fit specialist. In addition to being a loving father and prominent figure in the local community, Billy and Helga aspire to empower people, and bring families together through the benefit of cycling.

Jane's love for bikes started as a little girl riding around the neighborhood (getting to know all the neighbor's dogs!) Now you will find her as an avid enthusiast of all sorts of bikes from road to mountain and anything in between. She's passionate about getting others involved in riding and loving bikes as much as she does. Jane is currently working on finishing her degree in Marketing.

Evan comes to Pedal Power with an eye for detail. Evan took up cycling years ago on his dad's old bike. Since then a passion was born. Evan is now the Kentucky state single speed cyclocross champion. He is presently sharpening his mechanics skills and is a wealth of knowledge for cyclocross training and racing. Evan dreams of becoming a cyclocross pro athlete and we have no doubt with his tenacious attitude and passion, this dream will become a reality.
