Meet the Team
A native of the Seattle area, Wake started his career at the age of 12 as a bike mechanic for a touring group called the Cyclemates. He graduated from the University of Puget Sound in 1994, and later founded a non-profit venture in Walla-Walla, mentoring at-risk youth and teaching them the bicycle mechanic trade.
While a graduate student at George Fox University, Wake took a trip to China and was captivated by the sheer number of people riding electric bicycles. Back in Portland, he launched Portland’s first electric bike company, The eBike Store. The business quickly outgrew its original space and opened a new and larger store in North Portland across from Peninsula Park. Wake currently lives in the Piedmont Neighborhood with his wife and two daughters.
Sarah is a longtime Portlander and former city spokesperson (Mayor’s Office, Parks & Recreation, and Water Bureau) who has taken her knowledge of Portland and passion for bicycling into her role as our eBike tour guide.
Sarah enjoys taking tourists and locals alike on eBike tours because “It is THE best way to really see not only the major attractions, but all the nooks and crannies that make Portland so special.”
When not touring, you’ll find Sarah at her AirBnB – the Woodlawn Neighborhood Guest House, where she has been hosting travelers for 11 years.
Jeff is a New Orleans native who has been working his Cajun mechanical magic on Portland bicycles for the past four years.
Jeff is a fan of eBikes because “They let me carry heavy things without working hard.”
When not performing tuneups, flat repairs, and conversions, you’ll find Jeff riding his highly customized Raleigh Furleigh all over Portland and frequently all the way from his home in the Lents neighborhood to the Columbia River Gorge and back.
“There are a lot of people who would commute by bike… they just need a little boost.”
