Mike and Cheri Tillman
Mike and Cheri are the owner/operators of Pro Cyclery. Mike was an avid road biker - he got his first road bike primarily to improve his health and, after huffing and puffing through his first 10 mile ride was hooked. He's not riding as much now, but loves the sport and supporting all our customers.
Cheri claims to be the best SAG around. Her claim to fame is hauling six kids and a pop-up camper from town to town as Mike completed the Bike Ride Across Nebraska. She will tell you she's not a great rider, but loves the smile that riding puts on her face.
If there were a definition for Mom and Pop Shop in the dictionary, Mike and Cheri's photo would be there as they are the Mom and Pop of seven kids and extremely proud grandparents of two.

Penny is Pro Cyclery's official greeter, but her title is Chief Dog Operations Officer. Penny is a Golden Doodle and, although she barks pretty loudly, is afraid of almost everything and is very friendly. Penny gets phone calls at the shop (yes, customers want to be sure she's here before they come in) and gets Christmas and birthday presents from our customers. If we had a dollar for every customer who wanted to take Penny home, we wouldn't have to sell bikes anymore. Come in and say hi to Penny.
