A Bit (More) About Us
A.J. and Leah DeLauder founded The Tiny Corner Bike Shop in 2020. Over the past twenty years, A.J. has raced and ridden bikes on the roads and trails across Garrett and Preston County and can still be occasionally spotted toeing the line at West Virginia Mountain Bike Association (WVMBA) races in the Vet Expert category.
Formerly, A.J. helped run the Wisp Resort's downhill mountain bike program, raced for WVU's collegiate cycling team, and won multiple overall pro/expert titles and series, including the REV3 Spring Training Series and the U.S. Armed Forces in Europe (USAFE) Mountain Bike Championships in Garmisch, Germany.
Leah and A.J. now live just across the state line in Aurora, West Virginia, where both of them grew up, along with their two wild sons, a black lab named Laika, and a plethora of barn cats.
