Employee Highlight- Wayne The Marathon Manimal

The Bike Lane has some incredibly awesome employees!  Todd and I are always amazed at how lucky we are to have such a great crew of employees working for us.  We thought we would take some time to highlight an employee each week so that we can 1. Brag about how awesome each one is and 2. So we can tell you a  little bit more about who we are as a shop and who you might meet when you walk through our door.   We are not highlighting our employees in any particular order, just randomly telling a little something about each one.

Wayne- The Manimal. 


Wayne is a full time Sales Associate who works in our Springfield location.  He started working for us a little less than a year.    Recently retired from the Navy, Wayne has a passion for detail and for making sure every customer is taken care of.  Wayne takes customer service very seriously.  But what most people don’t know is that Wayne runs a marathon almost every weekend. 

He is a member of Marathon Maniacs, as well as, the 50 States Marathon club and he looks to join the 100-Marathon Club early next year.   The Raleigh City of Oaks Marathon this past weekend marked Wayne’s 65th marathon since 9/3/11 and 80th overall!   We think Wayne is a little crazy but he works super hard to reach his goals.  While Wayne runs a lot he also uses his bike for cross training.  So, when he is not pounding the pavement with his feet, he is hitting the trails at Wakefield or Fountainhead Park.  His most recent purchase was a Trek Stache 8.

So whether a customer is riding a bike for the first time or getting ready for a big race weekend, Wayne understands their needs and desire to achieve their goals.  Next time you are in the shop be sure to say “Hi” to Wayne (sometimes he sports a pink goatee) and ask him where he is running to this weekend?
