Blake Tilker, owner and lead mechanic of Salty Dog Bikes, located at 18 N. Lake Powell Blvd. between The Bowl and Hummer Adventure Tours, said the main goal of his business is to have “more butts on bikes in Page.”
“Our business plan is based on a love of bikes rather than profit. This is a small town, there is no reason we can’t see more people commuting by bike,” he said.
Tilker has a wealth of experience and has been involved in bicycle racing and repair for most of his life, first as a collegiate rider then later riding mountain bikes professionally.
“For about six or seven years, racing was my life, then I realized I was no Lance Armstrong and it is difficult to make a living racing bikes,” admitted Tilker.
