Meet The Advisory Board:
The Bike Hutto Advisory Board is working hard towards the organization’s vision of becoming a 501c3. We will be creating a full Board of Directors in the spring of 2016. We will post information pertaining to that application process as we get closer to May. If you have interest in being part of Bike Hutto and serving on the board, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make sure to alert you when more information becomes available.
Leigh Ann Ganzar
is Health Education Team Lead for Williamson County and Cities Health District and Coordinator for the WilCo Wellness Alliance. She works with promotion of healthy lifestyles all across the county through education classes, events and initiatives.
She is also a Cat 3 bike racer and rides for Athlete Architecture Women’s Racing team. She began riding her bike as an alternative to running and fell in love with the sense of adventure and social aspect that riding brings. She is involved with Bike Hutto because she believes in the mission of the organization and trying to help all citizens see the benefit of cycling.
Micah Grau grew up in Central Texas and has worked for the City of Hutto since 2006. He currently serves as the Assistant City Manager where he oversees the Downtown and Tourism, City Secretary, and Public Information functions of the City.
Micah, his wife Mallory, and two kids love to bike for fun. “You get to see the world from a different perspective on a bike! And, you feel like you have accomplished something when you ride to your destination. Not only are you doing something healthy but also something good for the environment.” Micah joined Bike Hutto for the knowledge and expertise that the group provides. He is particularly interested in learning bike maintenance and tips on good gear. In addition to biking, Micah enjoys all things outdoors. If he’s not on his bike, you will probably find him in his kayak.
is a Senior Networking Analyst with Dell, Inc. Having been with Dell for over twelve years, Lance assists his clients in their networking solutions and is proficient in problem solving, case management, and of course network designs.
Lance rode his bike a lot as a teenager as an alternative method of transportation. But like many people, he stopped riding after getting a car. Lance got his first bike as an adult in 2014 and has been riding consistently ever since. “I believe that Hutto is in a perfect position to consider alternative mobility options. I would like to see pedestrian and cycling projects go right along-side other infrastructure developments, yet I understand that the city does not have the budget needed to incorporate such bike lanes and paths at this time. Still, having an overall goal and planning ahead is something that I think will pay off when funds will allow it.”
manages the continuing competence program at the Texas Physical Therapy Association in downtown Austin. The association is fairly small but we cater to over 600 members and 25,000 PT/PTA licensees. A Physical Therapist or Physical Therapist Assistant must maintain a certain number of approved continuing education hours in order to renew their license to practice physical therapy every 2 years. She is the smiling face they get to talk to when they need a course approval.
Bicycling to Amber is not only a fun way to exercise, it is a great way to connect with other people in her community. “I’ve had a bike for as long as I remember but I would say that my love for cycling started 6 years ago after training for my first triathlon at the suggestion of a friend. No matter what my skill level was I’ve always felt embraced and encouraged by the cycling community during every group ride. It is this type of positive environment that I want to share with others and why I couldn’t wait to get involved with Bike Hutto. My hope for the future of Bike Hutto is that it will become not only a powerful advocate for the transition of Hutto into a bike friendly community, but an essential resource for cycling education throughout Hutto and the surrounding areas.”
