ABout Our Crew
Breck's is a family-owned business with a strong concentration on cycling for the whole family. All our employees are riders - which means you get the highest level of customer service from experienced, knowledgeable cyclists. They're passionate about building a bicycle-friendly community and surrounding themselves with cyclists of all shapes and sizes. Need someone to ride with? Just ask. We have several group rides, and if we know you want someone to ride with we'll make it a point to let you know when we're going to be on the bike. Have a question about shifting, flat repair, or how much air to run in your tires? Please don't hesitate to ask. Helping is what we're here for!
Breck has been a serious rider since the age of 9. He began racing BMX in the 1980s, earning factory sponsorships and top rankings in Kentucky and the national circuit. He opened his first bike shop in Owensboro, Ky., in 1995. His goal was to share his passion for cycling with others, and work at a job he loved. He is the best bike mechanic around and the area's only Specialized Certified Body Geometry Fit Specialist. His knowledge of the bike and of how the body responds to even the tiniest of adjustments is unparalleled. Riders wanting more comfort, strength and endurance on the bike drive three hours for his expert fittings. He's also a fun guy all-around, and loves to build relationships with customers. Breck works hard to serve the needs of every customer, whether they want a kids bike, a cruiser, or a top of the line race bike. For him, the smile he sees when a customer pedals off is the best payment there is!
Leigh Ann Tipton
Leigh Ann graduated from Western Kentucky University in 1999 with a bachelor's degree in journalism. Her passions were writing and sports, and she spent several years covering high school and collegiate athletics for the Evansville Courier & Press and freelancing for publications like the Indianapolis Star, Louisville Courier-Journal, Evansville Living and Henderson Business Magazine. The first day Breck saw her was when she walked into a pizzeria for a mountain bike club meeting, and Breck knew it was the woman he would marry. Of course, their first date was a mountain bike ride! Leigh Ann serves as secretary/treasurer for Breck's Bicycle Shop - managing the behind-the-scenes parts of the business so Breck and the crew can focus on serving customers with quality care. She and Breck have two young children - who of course love to ride their bikes, too!
