John Dereszynski

Station Manager

Growing up, riding a bike for fun and/or transportation was something John never had to think much about. It was simply his best — and sometimes only — choice!  Later in life, a trip abroad opened his eyes to just how beneficial and important biking can be to a community at large. John is very excited to be working at Bublr and hopes to help others make biking their best choice as well.

Andrew Ditto

Andrew first came to Milwaukee to attend the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design in 2006 studying animation and illustration.   Andrew is a wanderer at heart and has moved 5 times to 4 different states since 2013.  From Seattle, WA to Omaha, NE to Houston, TX with extended stays back in the good land, Milwaukee, WI, in-between. Andrew loves being out in the natural world and is always down for a camping trip. He doesn’t know where road or the trails will take him in the future but he’s always ready for that next adventure.

Molly Hayes

User Experience Tech

Born and raised in Milwaukee, Molly is a huge fan of this lovely city. She thinks everyday is a great day for a bike ride! You can most likely find her outdoors or cooking up something spicy in the kitchen. She is thrilled to be able to share her passion for biking with all residents of Milwaukee.

Luke Icenogle

System Tech

Luke Icenogle is employed full time outside of Bublr, but he comes into the shop as often as possible because working on bikes is cheaper than therapy, and twice as effective. Luke is the proud owner of a BA in English, a Master’s in Political Science, and a 1985 Trek 520. The greatest compliment Luke ever received was when his best friend told him “I ride bikes because of you.”

Dominic Leone

System Tech

Dominic’s love of cycling began over 30 years ago when he traded his running shoes in for a bike. He rides because it makes him feel like a kid again and gives him a sense of freedom. He thinks Bublr brings this same vibe to the community and he is happy to be a part of it. When Dominic is not biking, he enjoys music, family and friends and traveling the world.

Chris LoCicero

System Tech

Chris is a bike enthusiast who has been working in the industry for many years. He is an outdoorsman who enjoys camping, fishing and mountain biking. Music is a huge passion for Chris and he has been playing guitar for 14 years. He wants to share his passion and enthusiasm for cycling. Getting more people on bikes is part of his mission, as it is good for the mind and body, as well as for the Earth.

Alexis Lonning

Operations Manager

Alexis has been in the bike industry over 10 years and worked at all local bike shops. Feel free to wave her down if you ever need any help, she rides a bright pink bike and is hard to miss! If you are walking a dog, she’ll most likely stop and say “hi” anyways.
