Bike enthusiast living his dream

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Some economic experts are forecasting a mini-recovery this year with small business growth leading the way.

A new year means a new venture for some entrepreneurs.

We met Gene Kirk Thursday who is following his passion and taking a risk on a new small business.

Kirk cut the ribbon on at his new business, Breakaway Cycles Bike Shop on Ledo Road near Walmart.

He understands the risk of the new venture, but he says it's one he's been waiting his life to take.

"I'm very realistic in what the economy is, if I can do something I can enjoy and pay most of the bills that's all I'm really looking for," Gene Kirk, Breakaway Cycles.

Kirk hopes to introduce new people to the sport of cycling.
