Needing something to occupy his time after retiring from the Navy, Steve and his friend Glenn Hixson opened Bikes Plus in 1988.  From a tiny Millington location, open only in the evenings and on Saturday to locations in Bartlett and Germantown, he and his daughter Karen have built an effective team and reputation with a focus on cycling and improving health and fitness in the Mid-South. Steve has invested 28 years in serving customers’ cycling needs.  He clearly demonstrates the passion of a true “hands on” manager.  You will find him, building or servicing bikes, meeting and planning with suppliers, managing financial and POS processes or, interacting with customers.  Riding passion is primarily focused on supporting and riding charity rides and fitness and bike commuting.  More recently, Steve has taken his tennis skills and experience to a relatively new sport in Memphis, Pickle Ball.  When he is not at the shop, you will find him competing for hours at a time and most recently competing in the Senior Olympics.
