The Motley Crew!
Mark & KC Neel, “The Fools in Charge”
Mark has been working in bike and ski shops for 30 years now. There isn’t a bike, ski or snowboard he hasn’t seen, worked on or used. Mark is currently the head coach of the Castle Rock Crankers, the local high school mountain biking team. Mark was a volunteer patrolman at Arapahoe Basin for several years and every day he spends sliding on snow and being in harmony in nature is a good day for him. He tries to ride all the local (and regional) trails as much as possible.
Before joining Mark at the shop in 2004, KC was a staff reporter for various publications covering the television and entertainment industries. She is currently a board member of the Castle Rock Downtown Development Authority. She likes riding her bikes and loves to ski any chance she can get.
Hunter Linder, “Capt. Milkman”
Our manager, Hunter just loves to ride a bike. It doesn’t really matter what kind of bike; he rides them all. Hunter also likes heading to the slopes and strapping on a pair of skis any day of the week.
When he’s not doing all this, he flies airplanes and attends Metro State University where he is getting a degree in Aviation and Aerospace Management.
Stephen Case, “Mr. Good Wrench”
After leaving the armed forces, he moved to Texas but has come back home to Castle Rock and to Castle Rock Bike & Ski.
Tess Neel, “Heir Apparent”
After four years as a member of the Crankers, Tess also serves as a coach on the MTB team.
She lives to ski and heads to the hills whenever she has a spare moment.
Jeremy Fletcher, “Jeremus Prime”
When Jeremy isn’t working at Castle Rock Bike & Ski, going to school or riding his mountain bikes, he is often in his garage building something creative and cool. He’s quite handy and creative with tools.
Colin Jones, “Tigger”
Colin began working at Castle Rock Bike & Ski this summer and whenever he’s around, people are smiling. He just has a way of making everyone feel good. Colin is a senior at Douglas County High School this year and is the captain of the Crankers MTB team. He’s been racing on the team since he was a freshman and has become an excellent mountain biker.
Colin is also an active Boy Scout and is working on his Eagle Scout Badge.
Pali, “Employee of the Decade”
Pali has been a fixture at Castle Rock Bike & Ski since she was eight weeks old. She is now 10 and is still working the crowds. Pali is generally the first to say “Hello” when you walk in the door and the last to bid you “Happy Trails!” as you walk out.
