Meet Our Staff

Our Family

Hi there! We are the Whites (Brad, Jenny, Macen, Molly and Emma), owners of Velo City Cycles. Brad and I both grew up with a love for cycling; whether it was recreational rides with our families, bombing around the neighborhood with friends, competing in triathlons or road races. Holland is my (Jenny's) hometown, and when it came to starting a family, we loved what Holland had to offer. We love this community and are proud to be a small part of it. 

Our hope is that Velo City Cycles feels like your neighborhood bike shop. We offer many activities centered around kids, families and cyclists of all disciplines, speeds and abilities. Thank you for shopping with us and we look forward to riding with you soon!
