Meet Our South Side Cyclery Team

TIM - "TK "

TK has been working in the Bicycle Industry for 30+ years both the retail and corporate sides of the business. He has successfully opened and managed several bicycle shops in the area and is well respected for his knowledge and integrity in the cycling community. He has had a passion for cycling since he was twelve; when he started racing BMX. Before long he became a Pro, ranking 2nd in the nation. After his BMX days he took up mountain bike, road and cyclocross racing at the expert level taking the podium more times than not. 

He LOVES to talk about all things bikes and help people fall in love with the sport. He has helped several other cyclists attain their professional cycling goals by riding with and supporting two semi-pro cycling teams. Even though he may never stop racing, lately he has really enjoyed helping beginners to learn to ride and develop their skills. There isn't much about bicycles and cycling this guy doesn't know. 

DEANNA - "Coach D" 

Deanna grew up in St. Louis Hills with an active outdoor childhood riding bikes and playing in the beautiful neighborhood parks. She has been active her entire life. Being captain of the Bishop DuBourg pom squad and All-American Show Stopper made becoming an aerobics instructor and personal trainer  an easy transition to stay active in college. Her career in retail management, finance and advisor to small business owners...including several bike shops has helped prepare her to run the business side of things at South Side. She has enjoyed helping others pursue their cycling and triathlon goals; leading women's rides, road racing to support teammates earn wins and coordinating a semi-pro cycling team to launch pro cycling careers.

She is also a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Reiki Master, Nutritional Supplement Specialist and NICA Coach for the South City Composite Otters MTB Team where she loves helping kids build confidence through mountain biking.

DON- "South Side Legend"

Don "The Legend" Lennox is an institution--he's been the head mechanic at South Side Cyclery for more than thirty years?  Don's knowledge of bikes and how to fix them is one of our most valuable resources. His ability to restore bicycles is breath taking. 

Don is a renaissance man: outside of working full-time for SSC, he flies RC helicopters, follows ham radio, pursues an interest in organic gardening and sustainable living, and runs a lawn care business on the side! We're not sure when he sleeps--we're not one hundred percent sure he does.
