PBMA is pleased to introduce our newest Mechanic of the Week, Gary Moon, of Bicycle Outfitters in Winchester, Virginia!
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 – even behind the scenes, where we are proud to say that our Mechanic of the Week is presented by none other than Abbey Bike Tools and the Friar himself!
Gary was nominated by his co-workers at Bicycle Outfitters of Winchester, who tell us that he is somewhat of a local celebrity for his bicycle-whispering qualities! Gary has been a mechanic for over 25 years. His strong-suit is customer service, backed up by a deep knowledge base and understanding of how things work in the world of bicycles. Gary’s co-workers say that he is “perhaps one of our company’s most valued employees” because he is innovative and always has a solution to problems.
Gary’s co-workers also say that when the phone rings at the shop, the voice on the other end usually asks, “Is Gary there?” This routine has become a bit of a running joke for the shop’s staff, but “the deeper meaning is that folks love and trust Gary.” The PBMA admires Gary for his focus and professionalism, and we are proud to feature him this week. We hope that mechanics worldwide will be as inspired by him as his co-workers are every day.
For everyone reading this at home, we encourage you to join the #MOTW 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!
