Take It From Gregory Crichlow


3 votes

Gregory didn’t always dream of owning a bike shop. But when he lost his job as an architect, he combined his passion for design and his love of bicycles. The outcome was Chocolate Spokes, a bike shop in the Five Points neighborhood of Denver. Not only does Gregory run a small business, he designs and builds beautiful, custom bicycles. And yes, he also sells a wide range of chocolate from small, artisan chocolate makers.

In this episode of Take It From Me, Mo, the adaptive climber you met in episode six, joins Gregory (and his cats) in his bike shop. They talk about how he ended up choosing Five Points as the location for his shop and what it took to open a successful business after making a career change.
