Before getting into the bike business, Blue Ridge Cyclery owner Shawn Tevendale was a paramedic. Once he fell in love with cycling, he was hooked, and has been a sponsored athlete for eight years, with experience in road biking, cyclocross, and endurance mountain biking, so he understands comfort and lightweight performance on a bicycle. That’s why readers put BRC in the top spot this year. In second place, Blue Wheel Bikes never disappoints, with 40 years in the biz.
