Owner Jason lived on his bikes. As kids he and his brother Kevin would spend every waking moment in the summer riding around Vernon and Franklin on their BMX bikes. His first road bike was an 8th-grade graduation gift in 1987. It was nothing but passion for biking from there. In 1991 he joined the previous owners of the Sussex Bike & Sport Shop, Bernie & Arlea Gallagher. After a hiatus from the bike shop Jason went to school for neuromuscular massage therapy and worked with patients with lymphedema. It was while in the pre-med program at FDU (dean's list) in 1998 that Jason decided that he would become the owner of the Sussex Bike & Sport Shop.
"The bike shop is where I belong. I love what I do. Using both my bicycle knowledge and my knowledge of the human form makes our shop more than just a place to purchase things. We educate you so you can truly enjoy cycling."
