CEO, Co-Founder and Partner
Kevin Kennedy is the co-founder of The Spoke Easy and Cluck Design. He first discovered the unlikely pairing of these two passions as a bicycle commuter while studying Architecture at UNCC. Launching the bike shop and bar on 11.11.11 became a way to continue the exploration of design through city planning and community building. Now, through the daily operations of the shop and the social events and group rides, The Spoke Easy can explore a different perspective than Architecture: helping Charlotte grow through Infrastructure, Events and Advocacy. When he’s not designing or cycling, Kevin attends to his other favorite things: traveling and painting.
Co-Founder and Partner
Chris Scorsone co-founded The Spoke Easy with Kevin in 2011, along with Cluck Design in 2005. While studying Architecture at University of North Carolina Charlotte in the late 1980s and early 90s, Chris filled his off hours building local bike trails and attempting to podium regional MTB races. He currently spends the majority of his time in the North Carolina mountains, and attempts to survive a couple of races a year.
General Manager and Partner
Dread Fiyah has an extensive background in and a passion for cycling and architecture. He studied Architectural Design at Rutgers University, and has worked for both Cluck Design and The Spoke Easy since 2014. Dread started racing at 7 years old, and worked at his first bike shop when he was 16. When he’s not at The Spoke Easy, he can be found bowling two or three times a week, or spending his time outside—camping, gardening, or playing disc golf.
