Jenn Rowan and Ben Jones
Jenn Rowan and Ben Jones met as students Del Tech Owens while pursuing second careers. In 2016 they graduated from Del Tech, Jenn with a Occupational Therapy Assistant degree and Ben with a degree in Marketing. Since then they have married, knitted together a family, and took Lifecycle from bicycle restorations in their basement to a dynamic community oriented bicycle shop in downtown Milford. Lifecycle is a bicycle shop with a mission of promoting community outdoor recreation and playful fun on bicycles for all people. Lifecycle sells new and used bicycles, provides master bicycle mechanics, and specializes in bicycle fitting and adaptations. Jenn and Ben assist the City of Milford in bicycle safety and infrastructure consultation while serving non-profit organizations in promoting outdoor community events in our natural areas. Jenn remains active in the Occupational Therapy field in adult rehab and as a lab assistant in the OTA program at Del Tech Owens. Ben teaches Basic and Intermediate Bicycle Maintenance Classes at Del Tech Owens, Lifecycle, and at Abbotts Mill Nature Center. They volunteer their bicycle expertise and mechanical skills for several long distance charity bicycle events in Southern DE as well as for Code Purple Shelters in Milford. Jenn and Ben believe that bicycles bring happiness to people and meaningful growth to communities.
