Our Founders

Doug & Jan

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

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 Retül Fit Specialist and enjoys long rides on his Crux and the smell of Wend Wax in the morning.

Brent

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.
