mcgovern cycles

Chris McGovern, founder designer, fabricator and janitor of McGovern Cycles, has been rolling on two wheels since 1978. After getting his start in BMX, McGovern was brought up through the junior ranks riding on the road. Eventually he made the jump to the professional ranks riding for the likes of Zaxby’s, Jelly Belly, Health Net, and Sierra Nevada. While his professional racing career has ended, he has not closed the book on cycling. He currently resides in Nevada City, CA where he owns Real Wheels Bicycle Studio and Cycleution Coaching. McGovern’s obsession with bikes led him to start building his own. What started as a side project developed into a passion to deliver a different take on the bicycle to the world. McGovern Cycles crafts versatile and stylish machines for any type of rider. Whether you are commuting into work or racing nationals, McGovern Cycles will get you where you are going efficiently and with panache.12968790_10206021552807057_1666041749_n
