Ben has been riding bikes since he was very young. At the age of 14, he was told by a doctor no more running, baseball or soccer. He was told to either exercise by swimming or cycling, and since he didn't have a pool, cycling was the easy choice. That Christmas, Ben's mom got him his first road bike and it started from there.
The obsession started with hanging out at Acme Bikes where his first road bike was purchased. From there, he began working for parts, sweeping the floor, taking out the trash, doing anything and everything just to hang out at the store.
Back in 2000, Ben walked into Don's Bikes of Rialto and had conversation with Scott and the rest is history. He found a home. Ben said, "I still enjoy my job, the people I work with, and all the customers who have become my friends. I look forward to many more years."
