Our Founders

Doug & Jan

Doug has been the personality behind Fountain Hills Bikes since its inception in 2012. His passion for helping people achieve their dreams - cycling and otherwise - knew no limits. He started the Summer Night Ride Series at McDowell Mountain Park, which has become a draw for mountain bikers all over the Valley. He is fondly remembered for his ability to draw one into deep or casual conversation, his love for music and philosophy, and his brilliant smile.

Jan walked into FHB in 2013 as an avid cyclist looking for a new bike. She found and married Doug, along with getting that new bike. Through Doug’s constant support, she accomplished many cycling goals with a primary focus on endurance distances and climbing. She is always contemplating that next cycling challenge.


Russell became a part of FHB in 2017 following 16 years in the bike industry. His passion for cycling began in the early 80s, and his mountain bike racing experience took him to the expert level. He moved to Arizona in 2012, where he found his passion for gravel racing. Russell is a Body Geometry Fit Specialist and enjoys long rides on his CruX and the smell of Wend Wax in the morning.

Brent @azmbtr

Brent joined FHB in 2015, bringing over 20 years of bicycle mechanic experience to the team. In the past, he managed a resort tennis program for 15 years, during which time he also volunteered as part of a search and rescue team. Today, Brent’s interests include biking, biking, and more biking, but, when he isn’t biking, he enjoys travel and photography with his wife, Julie.

Julie @julierae

Julie left the corporate world to join FHB in late 2018. She is an outdoor enthusiast who grew up camping, hiking, and backpacking and has been mountain biking for over 15 years. She started out on a hardtail Gary Fisher on trails like Porcupine Rim in Moab, UT, and won her first mountain bike race at the age of 11. Julie spends her free time off the bike photographing her travels with her husband, Brent.


Jon has been with FHB since 2013. He’s been a Specialized expert for over 10 years and is a certified Body Geometry Fit Specialist. He is proud to say he uses and rides nothing but Specialized. He rides both road and mountain bikes and brings a wealth of cycling knowledge to the FHB team.
