Mark & KC Neel, “The Fools in Charge”
Mark has been working in the bike and snowsport industry since 1985 and he’s seen a lot changes in the outdoor industry in that time. Technologies have advanced, new products have been introduced and new riding styles have been created. But one thing that hasn’t changed is the fact that riding a bike, skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing are just plain fun. It’s a fun business to be involved in. It’s fun helping you find just the right product to fit your needs and wants. It’s fun watching you enjoy yourself on the road, trail and slope.
In addition to being the heart and soul of the shop, Mark also serves as the head coach of the Castle Rock Crankers high school mountain biking team and Castle Rock Youth Cycling Club.
After more than two decades as a reporter covering the TV and entertainment industries, KC joined Castle Rock Bike & Ski as the official "door greeter" over a decade ago. She's long been involved in promoting the downtown district and currently is a board member of the Downtown Merchants Association.
Rich "Mr. Goodwrench" Johnson
Rich joined our team as service manager after a successful stint as the service manager at Performance Bicycles in Greenwood Village. Rich is an avid cyclist and can often be found riding either his road bike, mountain bike or fat bike all along the Front Range. But his favorite riding is with his grandkids around the neighborhood. Before his career in the cycling industry, Rich was a software support engineer at IBM. When he's not riding his bike or fixing other people's bikes, Rich can often be found paddleboarding at one of the state's lakes and rivers.
Jaden "Townsie" Townsend
Jaden is a senior at Castle View High School. He’s been part of our Castle Rock Bike & Ski family for over a year now. Jaden loves to ride his bike but his first love is skiing. He has become an impressive ski and snowboard technician and knows his way around bikes as well. When Jaden isn’t working for us or skiing, he’s playing lacrosse for CVHS. He may be quiet but he is probably one of the funniest and smartest people we know.
