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, Shift Bicycles started as the neighborhood bike shop offering a wide variety of bicycles and accessories. Over the course of two year, Shift Bicycles began to emerge as the expert in long-distance, commuting and electric assist riding. Now with the focus of encouraging cycling as a lifestyle, we rebranded to Journeyman's Adventure Co. where we are more than just a bicycle shop, we're an adventure company.

Meet the Business Owner

Glenn Amey

Glenn Amey biking through winter!

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 program at the Richmond Waldorf School.

Meet our Shop Assistant

Abbie Ertel

Abbie is a Virginia native and has lived in Richmond for the last 6 years. She has had a lifelong interest in the outdoors. While completing her degree at VCU, she became particularly interested in hiking, and has gone on backpacking trips in various corners of the world. After a back injury, Abbie became obsessed with all things bikes, as riding helped her build back strength and mobility. And because biking is faster. When she’s not in the shop she is out riding or making ceramics.
