Mandi came to Chico in 2003 and fell in love with its bicycle-friendly culture. She commutes by bike daily and then hops on a mountain or road bike for more! She is committed to improving bicycling infrastructure in Chico and educating the community about environmental, social, and economic benefits of bicycling. Mandi is the Sustainability Coordinator at Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and manages environmental initiatives including zero waste, energy & water conservation, and alternative transportation.
Ann is a strong advocate for cycling in Chico and a dedicated bike commuter. In addition to being a long-time Chico Velo board member, she makes a big contribution to the community through her work at CAVE (Community Action Volunteers in Education) and in her role on the City Council.
Thad Walker is fairly new to Chico, but he’s an ‘old hand’ at mountain bike advocacy. He is one of the driving forces leading the new Velo Trailworks program, bringing experience in community trail outreach, trail conception, design, building and maintenance, fundraising and youth cycling initiatives, with organizations like IMBA, the US Forest Service, and various city and county offices. When he’s not riding or building trail, Thad works as a Cycling Coach for Carmichael Training Systems.
