Bill Hyland Sr. (AKA Sr.)
Bill started working in the bike shop as a kid, when his mother and father ran their original shop known then as Foxworthy Bike Shop. Today, as the bike shop owner, he is an expert in sales and service for all bikes: road, mountain, tandem, unicycles and three-wheelers. Bill is always happy to take the time needed to get the perfect bike or right piece of gear for you. Bill also loves to ride! He rides road and mountain bikes as well as fixies, and if you're lucky you might see him on his custom built tall bike. Whether he's riding to work or just out on a ride with his wife, you are likely to see him on the bike somewhere in the bay area. Bill's favorite mountain bike rides are the Saratoga Gap Long Ridge Trail and Wilder Ranch.
Bill Hyland Jr. (AKA BJ, Junior)
Bill Jr. is a third-generation Hyland bike shop guy. He is the co-owner of the shop, and specializes in finding the perfect products to fill the store and fit your needs. As an avid rider, he has hands-on experience which allows him to help you make decisions in all areas of the store. A grad from San Jose State, BJ is now running the store and always trying to take it to the next level. He enjoys spending time with customers and loves to talk bikes. When it comes to riding, variety is the key, but his favorite spots are UCSC, Demo, and Calabasas.
Melanie Hyland (AKA Mel)
Melanie grew up working in the family bike shop and rejoined the Hyland team in 2014. Melanie can assist you with finding the best bike to fit your needs, and takes extra care with the youngest customers. In her "free" time, she teaches kids and adults how to ride bikes, which gives her as much satisfaction as it does them! Each month, she volunteers alongside Turning Wheels for Kids, a local non-profit organization, to build and repair bicycles for underprivileged children. Melanie has a son Tyler and enjoys riding with him on cruiser rides through the neighborhood, as well as longer road ride and mountain rides!
Tim Bengard (AKA Bengard)
Tim has more than 20 years of experience in the bicycle industry and is a great resource for all of your bicycle needs. Whether you have an old relic or something just off the showroom floor, Tim will be able to help you find the right accessories to fit your needs. Tim is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to bikes and enjoys challenging himself by tackling some of the more difficult repair jobs that roll into the shop. In his free time, Tim enjoys spending time with his family and playing golf.
Aaron started working in the shop in 2014. He is an avid cyclist, and commutes over 20 miles round-trip to work every day on his bike. Aaron’s riding experience allows him to relate to customers looking for a new bike. In his free time, Aaron races at the Hellyer Velodrome in South San Jose and is currently ranked as a Category 2 racer, just a few levels below Pro! Long rides on his days off frequently take him over Mount Hamilton, but his favorite spot to ride is near the ocean. The longest ride he has completed in one day is 170 miles, taking him over Mount Hamilton through Tracy over Patterson Pass through Pleasanton and back to San Jose. Aaron has been a great addition to our team and is not only knowledgeable when it comes to bikes, but he’s a great wrench!
