Meet the Team

Chris Padavana Shop Owner

Chris or “CP” opened Eden Bicycles in 2002 and turned it into the Premier East Bay bike shop you see today. Read our story to learn how this paperboy turned into a bike aficionado. Chris rides a Giant Propel Advanced SL 1, a Pinarello Dogma Think 2, a Giant Anthem X 29er 1, a Giant Trance X 29er 0, a Surly Pugsly and a Surly Cross Check … yes, seven bikes! He has always been competitive and raced as a Category 2 racer for 3 years, so he rides to win. Though nowadays, it’s mostly so he can eat more and enjoy good beer!

Erin Padavana Shop Owner

Erin has been with us since BC (Before Cover!). Her nickname around the shop is “Smarty” and she lives up to the name everyday. Erin mainly rides socially, hitting the road on a Giant Avail Advanced 0. She loves to get together with friends and to encourage, support and enjoy riding with other like-minded women.

Andrew Smith  Service Expert

Andrew is our newest mechanic, joining the team in May 2013. He likes to ride up hills on either the road or the dirt. The steeper the hill, the better the descent. He rides for fun, for exercise and for sanity.
