Meet Our Team
Eddie Sampson is a Northern Virginia native who visited Shepherdstown on a cycling trip in 2003 and fell in love with Shepherdstown and the surrounding area. He has been an avid cyclist since his college days and has always been an advocate of a lifestyle of fitness that is also fun.
In 2007 he realized his lifelong dream of opening a shop promoting two of his favorite things - pedaling and paddling. He graduated from Radford University in 1983 with a Bachelors in Criminal Justice and currently balances his duties as shop owner with his job at the U.S. Capitol working under the Sergeant of Arms.
