I love the way cycling brings people together. It is such a fun sport for all ages and fitness levels and the health benefits are endless. I have never come across anyone in a bad mood after a bike ride and that’s part of why I love to share my excitement for cycling with everyone I can.

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.
