How long have you lived in the area?
When did you start volunteering at VéloCity?
What made you want to become a Véloteer?
My primary motive was to offer some of my time and talent to a great organization.
What keeps you volunteering in general and why do you like volunteering at VéloCity?
It provides a sense of community and “paying it forward” so to speak. VéloCity is a fantastic non profit providing a very valuable resource that is not only fun to participate in but brings a much needed service in our area.
How do you usually use your bicycle? (leisure, transportation, fitness, etc.)
I have two rides: mountain and road. Both are for sport.
Describe the most enjoyable time you’ve had while on a bike?
Bikes have always been a way for me to connect to others while also enjoying and exploring the outside world.
