Meet the Intown Bicycles Crew

On My Way to the Bike shop

Mike Goodman

I have over 35 years of experience in the bicycles industry and am the sole owner of Intown Bicycles. I started out in a shed in my backyard in 1982, and as my son likes to say, have become an example for living the American dream. Read about the History of Intown Bicycles to see how it all came to be.


Rita Berry

Rita

Rita Berry

Rita came to us in 1996 when Atlanta was in high gear with the Olympics. The city was bracing itself for traffic gridlock, and suddenly people were tuning up their old bicycles and buying new ones to get around on. (What a great idea!) We were so busy at that time, that she got virtually no formal bicycle training when she arrived. She just jumped in. Although she knew little about bicycles at the time, she picked it up quickly with her natural mechanical ability. And talk about your engineer… she can rig anything. Rita is also the one that keeps the sparkle on the place. She rearranges our corners, dusts the displays, waters the plants, and fixes the leaky faucets. Rita is our "Jacqueline of all Trades". It has been a blessing to have her all these years.


Amy Plasman

Amy

Amy Plasman

Amy joined us in the Spring of 2009. Although she had no official bike shop experience, she had spent some time at SOPO, the local bike co-op. After passing the "tool board test" in her first interview, I decided to hire her as an apprentice. Glad I did!

It turns out that Amy is a natural for retail. Of course she speaks with customers about all things bicycle and is pretty good with a wrench, but she also manages the inventory, does displays, and takes care of the myriad of details involved in running a bike shop. (And the place runs on details) I like to call her the lubricant that makes the place run smoothly.


Hey. He Was There A Minute Ago

Daniel

Daniel Chung

Daniel joined us at the end of 2012. It's funny. I kept telling him I didn't need any help since it was the end of our season, but I hired him anyway. He did so well on our BAT (Bicycle Aptitude Test) that I couldn't pass him up.

Daniel came on as an apprentice, but he wasn't one for long. Besides being armed with an impressive knowledge of bike stuff, he's a quick study, and does meticulous work. Stick around and you might get to hear one of his famous bad jokes! Naturally, we're glad to have Daniel.


Hey. He Was There A Minute Ago

Craig on a Test Ride

Craig Stitt

Although mostly from Savannah, Craig comes to us via UGA where he got a degree in marketing (and drove one of the campus buses. How cool is that? ) He's a natural mechanic, bicycle fluent (of course), and loves backpacking with his dog, Hank. Plus, Craig's just a really cool guy. Glad he decided to hang with us for a while before his next port of call.


Hey. He Was There A Minute Ago

Tait About to Eat It

Tait Rosbottom

Tait joined us in the Summer of 2016. We needed a "gopher" that Summer to help with some of the running around on the weekends. A student at MLK High School, he’d already picked up some mechanical skills from his big brother. He played bicycle polo. We were jazzed. We got a gopher and an apprentice. We just hope he goes to college in town.


Thiery Goodman

Theiry's Mural

Thiery Goodman

Last, but not least, you may not actually see her when you come in, but you will see her work. Besides being the "woman behind the scene", Thiery is our interior designer. She's the one that creates the atmosphere here with her fine eye for color, decorative techniques, and plain old elbow grease. Check out the mural she painted in the showroom next time you come. See how many animals you can find in it. Thiery and I have been married over 36 years, and I can tell you that she is happiest with her paint (or gardening) clothes on.
