PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - John McCollough moved to Panama City at the end of 2018. He was ready to live a normal, retired lifestyle in a place he fell in love with. McCollough has many hobbies, including paddle boarding, motorcycles, and of course, riding around town on e-bikes. One afternoon while riding around town in 2020, he met a founder of YourBikerGang.

YourBikerGang is a company based out of Austin, Texas. The founders built the company around their love for e-bikes. It has since expanded to other cities. YourBikerGang seeks out areas that are scenic, have a rich history, and are e-bike friendly. That’s why they chose to set-up shop in Panama City, and now McCollough is the face of that operation.

“I really am in love with it. I love the community. I love the people here. It’s been great.” said McCollough.

The business and McCollough are a perfect fit. Anyone who takes a tour with him will be the first to tell you, he is as friendly and welcoming as they come.

“I’ve never met anyone like John before. He’s very funny, and he’s very knowledgeable and you just let him, like, entertain you and show you all around, and it’s so much fun,” Panama City resident Melissa Bowman said.

The tours are fun for the whole family.

According to McCollough, “Everyone can do it, that’s what I want ‘em to know. Thirteen to eighty-three, we’ve had ‘em all. And so, a great experience for everyone.”

Whether you’re from the other side of the globe, or right down the road, you’ll probably learn something from him too.

“I saw things that I’ve never seen before, like, there are these beautiful places that I’ve never knew about before,” said Bowman.

Thanks to McCollough’s kindness, humor, and personality, it’s one of the highest rated tours in the area on TripAdvisor.
