This month we are giving you a brief glimpse in the life of our family member Jesse Garcia. He started working at Bicycle Warehouse back in 2012. To say he was rough around the edges would be a slight understatement. The first time I interacted with Jesse I almost fired him on the spot. I'm glad I didn't. Jesse has turned out to be a bright shining star as a Team Leader running our San Marcos store.
His enthusiasm for life is contagious. He's always smiling because he enjoys being around people. This is a rare shot of him without his smile. I think he has his game face on for the next climb.
Debbe and I are both super proud of the man he has become. We trust him with the keys to the kingdom. We are excited about all the great things we have yet to accomplish together. The world is yours young man. Blaze your trail.
Here's a little about Jesse
Where are you from?
I'm from Great Falls, Montana
What else do you enjoy doing?
Hanging with my wife, going to comedy shows, laughing with friends, eating good food, drinking coffee, taking photos, and videos.
What Kind of Bike Do You Ride?
I currently ride a TCR Advanced Pro, a Giant Anthem, and a Whitehouse BMX bike.
What do you love most about riding?
I love drinking coffee!
What's your favorite Place to ride?
Downtown SD on the BMX or any road ride with an awesome view and espresso. Right now on the road bike I am all about climbing up Mt Whitney in San Marcos and riding thru dirt roads just exploring!
What do you love most about being a Team Leader?
Working with my team to make them and myself best serve our guests. Also a huge plus is interacting with all of our new and existing guests and having them know they can rely on me and my team to best serve them.
What's the best piece of advice you have for any new rider
If you're getting a bike from us the quality is going to be great at any price point so make sure you get the accessories. They will make you ride longer with more comfort and will help you be prepared. Also, wheel sets are the most important upgrade you can do.
What's your Favorite type of nutrition for road riding
On shorter rides I use just the electrolyte mixes in my water. If it's a long ride I will pre-make oat bars and eat on every hour.
We love you and look forward to lot's of prosperous years ahead
