Alan Teeling, or “Teelo” as he is known by friends, lives passionately for cycling. He grew up in the cycling culture of Ireland where cycling is a national pastime for young and old. He has been cycling and racing since the age of 9 on the roads of Ireland. His father, John, had a bicycle shop on the scenic peninsula of Howth in County Dublin where the famous hill of Howth beckons riders who dare.
In 1988, Teelo moved to the United States and settled in Charlotte, North Carolina where he has lived and worked in the retail bicycling industry. Teelo’s lifelong dream of owning his own bicycle shop came to fruition in March of 2010 with the opening of Bike Depot of Waxhaw.
Teelo’s vision for Bike Depot is a community bike store for all cyclists young and old. If you are looking for a bicycling community, a bike, or a full-service bike store then look for Teelo. If you are looking for Teelo, you will find him at Bike Depot of Waxhaw or on the beautiful roads of the “North Carolina cycling heartland” in and around Waxhaw, North Carolina.
