PBMA is excited to introduce you to our Mechanic of the Week, Pete Hill, of the St. Petersburg Bicycle Cooperative in St. Petersburg, Florida!
For those of you just tuning into #mechanicmonday, this is where we feature one mechanic each week, chosen at random from nominations submitted the week before. It’s all about mechanics supporting fellow mechanics!
Pete is not only an asset to the St. Petersburg Bicycle Cooperative staff, but he is also an all-star race mechanic. Pete has supported numerous pro tour teams over the years, and he continues to work as a neutral mechanic with both the SRAM and Mavic programs. A retired firefighter, Pete maintains his paramedic certifications, which many crashed riders (and fellow mechanics!) have been thankful for.
Pete’s technical knowledge and skill is rivaled only by his genuine sincerity. Whether assembling bicycles for holiday toy drives or volunteering for bicycle advocacy in his St. Petersburg community, Pete embodies PBMA’s goal of “mechanics supporting fellow mechanics” – which is why we couldn’t be more proud to feature him today.
We encourage you to join the conversation: Post a picture of YOUR favorite mechanic and tag us @probicyclemech, #probma, or #mechanicmonday, or nominate him or her to be featured in next week’s post!
