Steve, like every other kid, rode a bike, then went through the typical life, got a car, married Kim, had 2 girls, Aryn & Kodi, worked, etc.,. In 1994 he bought his first mountain bike & life took a turn. Family, working, & mountain bikes became his life. Mountain Bike racing when he could, and trail riding as much as possible.
In 1999, life took another turn, tired of working in the Corporate Retail world, 55 hour work weeks for some corporation, and seeing a friend die of cancer at a young age, Steve decided that life had to change. “Hmm, what if I opened a bike shop, I could be around bikes all the time, talk about bikes all the time, life could be good”. So that’s the story of how and why Steve opened Saucon Valley Bikes.
Since getting that first mountain bike in 94 Steve has logged over 25,000 miles on his various bikes.
When Steve turned 50, Steve did a month long bike tour of the Southwest.  Road riding to different destinations, & mountain biking in between.
