What do you do at The Bicycle Planet?  Fittings & A lot of everything


Background in fitting & Cycling-  Well it all started when a bunch of my friends asked me to join them for a mountain bike ride when I was in 10th grade.  I found my love for cycling pretty much within that ride.  Riding my bicycle just gets the adrenaline going and provides ton of excitement.  Cycling I find can be like a pain killer, when you are down a good ride is the perfect medicine.  Theres a something about riding that gives a feeling of just zoning into the ride and not thinking about anything else.  I started doing fits in 2012.  I am certified By SICI (Serotta International Cycling Institute)  I have a huge passion for helping others to enjoy there love for cycling as much as I do.


Why do you work at Bicycle Planet?  Each day at the planet brings on new and exciting challenges.  If it’s selling, starting a new program, or resolving issues I absolutely love doing anything to make Bicycle Planet the best we can be.  The atmosphere is just up-going and there’s alway laughs.  I love coming to work.


What is the best thing about Bicycle Planet?  The customers, our staff, and our expertise.  We are always looking to make the best experience for our customers.

 

 

 

Name: Meaghen Ann Harris

I started working at The Bicycle Planet in summer 2011. It is my goal at the store to help facilitate the sport of cycling as well as multisport, as I have a passion for both. While I was brought in to help with many different tasks at the store, the area of bicycle fitting always sparked my interest- making sure that one has the right sized bicycle, and the proper position can help ensure that he/she enjoys riding, and is as efficient as possible on those pedals. I came to find that even the smallest changes can make a world of a difference. I had the privilege of attending the Fit Institute Slowtwitch (F.I.S.T.), working under the likes of Dan Empfield and Paul Swift to become a certified fitter. I also had the opportunity to attend training in Boulder, Colorado to be certified in using the Retül system, which utilizes motion capture software and provides a dynamic fit.

Outside of the store, I live for the sport of triathlon. If it involves swimming, cycling, and running, I want to know about it and be a part of it! This is part of why we started The Bicycle Planet Triathlon team- to help people enjoy the sport even more through training opportunities, clinics, team races, and shared experiences.
