SMALL TALK WITH TERI By Teri Norbye
Meet Dave Bzdula, who lives in Concord with his wife, Angie, and their two children, Tayler and Sydney. He’s owned Big Dave’s Bikes in Pleasant Hill for over five years, and his son Tayler also works with him there.
Favorite place to ride your bike? Anywhere in Marin County. It’s very bike friendly. I know most of the off roads and which roads to avoid. Many of the different microclimates found on earth are in Marin County.
Fun facts about Dave:
1. When I was young, I used to buy 99-cent patch kits at Long’s Drugs and charge my friends 35 cents to patch their tubes. I made $12 for every dollar.
2. I lived in Massachusetts when I was young. I also spent a year and a half in Maui in the hotel restaurant business and realized what I really wanted to do was not that.
3. My wife and I hope to take a cruise through the Panama Canal next year. We want to see the locks her grandparents had worked on.
4. I’m colorblind, so the work orders in my shop always list the color of the bikes with an “ish,” such as “blue-ish.”
