Jamie, Owner of Endeavor Cycles

Jamie

Jamie grew up in a small town about an hour south of Charlottesville. His passion for cycling started in 1989 watching the Tour de France and he started riding that year and has never stopped. His love of cycling has taken him up and down the East Coast, as well as a few places on the West coast.

Attending colleges in Vermont and Illinois, completing a BA in History at DePaul University. Jamie’s path has taken him from food services, to owning a small clothing boutique, to managing a bank, but one thing has remained a constant, his love of cycling. This lead him to the opening of Endeavor Cycles!

If he is not riding a bike or at the shop working with customers, he is at home with his wonderful wife, Eva and their little daughter, Grace.

Ben

Ben fell in love with bikes when attending school in Western North Carolina. Being a passionate commuter, he began wrenching on bikes at the local co-op and racing collegiately in the southeastern conference.

Since then he has travelled all over the country, working in shops in the Southeast, New England, and Southeastern Utah. Missing the Blue Ridge and Appalachian mountains brought Ben to the Charlottesville area, where he has been working at Endeavor since 2019.

Teri

Hailing from the south, Teri was excited to join the vibrant cycling community of Central Virginia and the Blue Ridge. You can find Teri pedaling on the road, trails, gravel, in the national forest or here at Endeavor wrenching bikes.
