Tim Kelley is the global brand manager for K-Edge, the very best bling for your bike.

But his day job only begins to tell the story of TK as we like to call him. After climbing and skiing mountains around the world, Tim was bitten by the cycling bug while living in the Tetons during his time as the Lifelink and Dynafit National sales manager.

His journey on the bike continues today as he inspires his own two young children to ride, and enjoy the endless beauty around them wherever they go. What I admire most about Tim is his deep ability to help us all recognize and remember the true value we get from our adventures outside, together.

I’m honored to call Tim a lifelong best friend and I hope you enjoy our conversation from the 2018 Sea Otter Classic.

We built this interview series from the title of our newest children’s picture book Taking The Lead that follows our animal characters along a journey to open a local bike shop and inspire their town to ride. We hope you enjoy these personal stories from bike industry executives, non-profit leaders, pro athletes, and families just like yours who are celebrating kids on bikes and inspiring families to get off the couch... and out for a ride.
