Volunteer of the Month: Chris

Chris is originally from Wales but moved to the US, first Colorado then California, 14 years ago. He commutes daily to work via bicycle, taking the direct route to work, then the nice Bay Trail and Stevens Creek Trail for the ride home.
He's been volunteering at the Bicycle Exchange for about a year. When choosing a bike to fix, he likes the adult bikes because they are easy to test-ride, but the kids’ bikes are typically easier to repair. While his specialty is fixing tire problems, bent derailleurs are his biggest challenge.
He enjoys running (5K and 10K races) and swimming as well as riding. He loved visiting Paris for the architecture, cafes, and walks. And the most unusual thing that he has done is that he milked a cow in Denmark - ask him about it!
