Don (Medina) Complete Bio

Service Manager

I am the service manager here at the Medina store and have been with Century Cycles since 2002. Though my former career as an owner/operator of a carpentry construction business did little to prepare me for my current career, I am, and always have been, a lifelong bicycling junkie. What I didn't know about bicycles before, I have learned through hands on experience and extensive industry training.

I live with my lovely wife April, two adorable kids, Robert and Skylar, several dogs and cats, a rabbit, a turtle and three overgrown goldfish a-way back in the holler’ in beautiful Hinckley, Ohio.

I am a former youth wrestling coach and have a lifetime subscription to "The Peanut Butter of the Month Club." Given a choice between football, basketball and baseball... definately baseball! Some of my favorite movies are “Jeremiah Johnson,” “Bull Durham,” and “Caddyshack.” While I like listening to most kinds of music (rap, not so much, thank you), I’ve recently discovered the soothing sounds of “Thrash Grass” (heavy metal bluegrass).

Although I don’t necessarily enjoy long walks on the beach at sunset, I do enjoy riding my road bike at sunrise (wait, who am I kidding, I like riding any time of day) as well as Night Rides on the Towpath with my family. When I am not riding bicycles, I am collecting bicycles. Being a firm believer in the formula "N + 1" (with N being the number of bicycles you currently own), my collection borders on obsession. Fortunately, I have a very understanding and loving wife (thank you, Honey)!  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, chopping firewood, and making stuff out of bicycle parts.
