Meet the Business Owner: Christiaan Bourdrez

Hello, My name is Christiaan and I have been working on bicycles since I was old enough to ride one. I still remember learning to ride a bike balancing without training wheels in front of my house growing up. Since then I have repaired, recreated, raced, and ridden bikes to get where I wanted to go. I previously owned a bike and ski shop at Crystal Mountain WA called Rainier Rides from 1999 to 2007. I have worked at bike shops from Virginia to California to Washington as well as being a race mechanic for national and international races. I strive to provide the best customer service and 100% guarantee all my work. My goal in starting Ride Bicycles is to encourage my community to ride bicycles for transport and for fun. Come in and say hello.
