A Little About Our Story

After 10 years doing business on Vashon Island as Spider's SKI & SPORTS, we relocated our shop to Gig Harbor, WA in December 2022 with a new name: Spider's Bike, Ski & Tennis Lab.


Lane "Spider" MacLeod

Founder/Owner/Managing Member


Spider grew up on Vashon Island, WA and was given the nickname "Spider" by Bill Kirschner, co-founder of K2 Skis. Spider's love of skiing led him to race competitively as a junior and amateur. In 1979 Lane moved with this family to the Portland area where he ran a family bike shop and raced BMX competitively for Panda and Robinson Racing. He then coached the Gresham High School Ski Team and was a summer camp race coach and PSIA instructor on Mt. Hood. His career in the footwear and sports industry included product design and sales for US-based Danner Boot Manufacturing, as well as Nike Retail, golf course equipment sales, golf teaching pro, and as golf course superintendent. A career highlight was stringing racquets for the Davis Cup Team and tennis greats such as Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe.
