Community of Cyclists Profile: Eli Grau
“I ride because it’s so much fun going so fast.”
1. What do you like to learn about?
I like learning about bones and fossils, monkeys, baby chicks, how plants grow, cars, and things that are really, really old. I want to have a paper route.
2. Use 3 words to describe who you are?
Helper, Friendly, Playful
3. How long have you been riding a bike?
For two hours. Actually, about two years.
4. Do you ride for recreation, transportation, or both?
I ride because it’s so much fun going so fast.
5. What do you enjoy most about cycling?
I like going up bridges and riding with my best friend – my sister, Norah.
6. What would you love to see for bicyclists in Hutto?
A parachute. Or something that sprays out fire in the back to make me go faster (a rocket booster). But I don’t want to go too fast. I’d also like more sidewalks that are really flat where no cars drive.

The Community of Cyclists Campaign is an effort by Bike Hutto to show the wide variety of people in Hutto that bike. The campaign will promote the fact that there is no one “type” of person who rides a bicycle. They are our friends, our neighbors, our students, and our colleagues. It is always best to put a face to the name, whether you’re talking about bike safety, future bike infrastructure, or social events. Hutto is about community.
