Owner Sean off-road cycling in Pisgah National Forest North Carolina

Sean Maiscott - Co-Owner

Sean has been riding mountain bikes on various terrain since he bought his first MTB, a Marin Bear Valley SE, from Mesa Cycles way back in 1991. As a commuter, part-time roadie and full-time off-road cyclist, Sean has worked in the cycling industry for well over 20 years. Starting with helping to form the Tri-Art camp for budding triathletes in 2000, Sean has coached cycling, taught mechanics and worked in cycling service and sales management until ownership came his way in 2019. His favorite stretches of trail in town are Eagle Valley Climb to Overlook Trail at Greensfelder and Smoother Climb at Chubb, but you'll most likely catch him hitting the home trail of Bootlegger's Run at Creve Couer Park which he rides to from the shop a few times a week during the season.
