About Us

115 N 18th St in Richmond, Virginia is your destination for adventuring by bike. We are open Monday through Saturday from 11-5 with extended hours on Wednesday and Thursday until 6pm.

Established in 2018.

In 2016, Glenn founded Shift Bicycles...a wee but fierce! bike shop offering a small but proper collection of bicycles and accessories focused on the touring and commuting enthusiasts . Over the course of the next two years, Shift Bicycles emerged as the mid-atlantic regional expert in global trekking, die hard commuting, and adventure cycling. In 2018 Shift outgrew it's space, moved next door, renamed to Journeymans Adventure Co. and now offers a much larger scope of amazing bicycles, parts and accessories for the adventure bicyclist. Journeyman's Adventure Co. curates and stocks only the best in class and is much more than a bicycle shop, we're an Adventure Company.


Meet the Business Owner

Glenn Amey

Meet our fearless leader. Glenn has been a small business owner in the heart of Richmond for nearly 30 years. Fresh out of college he founded a goldsmithing studio and emerged as a premier craftsman of custom engagement rings. If you dropped in during those years and the shop was closed he was likely somewhere in the world on a bike. Today, when's he's not in the shop or out riding, you can find him leading a Bicycling Curriculum at the Richmond Waldorf School.
