When the founders began building UBX Bikes in 2010, they had a clear goal in mind: become the forefront provider for all things biking in Key Biscayne. That vision was quickly brought to fruition as we are now Key Biscayne's premier full-service bike shop. We have also expanded to include a Retül Fit System and a Computrainer Studio, which is widely regarded as one of the best training methods available for cyclists. For the UBX Bikes team, this task has been a true labor of love. One of the co-founders was the owner of several popular cycling stores in his native country of Venezuela, he’s also a seasoned pro-triathlete who has participated in many international competitions and even represented his home country in Greece at the 2004 Olympics. Jesus Rivero, our cofounder is also from Venezuela, has always been very passionate about health and fitness, and was a competitive swimmer in his native city of Merida, Venezuela during his youth. Jesus navigated every corner of his city on his bike and soon developed a passion for cycling, which continues to grow. When he moved to the United States, Jesus realized the possibility of taking his passions and making them his job. Now, Jesus can be surrounded by what he loves – bikes and those who are passionate about biking – while doing a job which he can truly be excited bout. Jesus sees biking not only as his favorite sport, but also as the most beneficial exercise that one can do for their health.
Jesus has always been passionate about sports. At an early age he was already an accomplished swimmer, ranked in the top 10 – Youth, of his native country, Venezuela. He started mountain bike in the roughed Andean Mountains, and later when we moved to Florida he started road cycling. He is now an accomplished competitive Road and Triathlete, who has been able to transform his passion into his way of living. Count on him for friendly and professional service.
