"I cut my teeth in the service bays of bike shops. Moving up into the industry working for Specialized Bicycles in their early days. It was there I had my first exposure to elite racing service at the 1986 Coors Classic, and I never looked back. From the Tour de France and Olympic games, to the spring classics, to the Cyclo-cross, and MTB World Championship to the Tour of Beijing, and the Tour of California, to countless fondos and charity rides, I've been lucky to be at the service of athletes for decades. In spite of all of those places, the greatest satisfaction comes from keeping riders like you and me rolling when we need it the most." - Alt Route Founder - Christopher Zigmont
Allow us to bring what we've learned from professional cycling and working for leading manufacturers to make your next ride a little bit better. Our work is guaranteed.
