Volunteer of the Month: Nilay

Nilay will be a senior in the fall and has already taken most of his college prep classes. He will finish up the rest and continue to get training in automotive tech. He wants to go to college somewhere in California so he can continue to ride his bike in the hills and valleys of our beautiful state. He hasn’t decided on a major yet but says whatever career he takes up will be hands-on.
He is becoming a frequent volunteer at our work days, and is eager to learn more about the intricacies of bicycle mechanics. Today, I showed him how to re-grease and adjust wheel bearings. One more skill to add to his resume. Recently he bought a Specialized Roubaix carbon-fiber road bike from the Bike Exchange and is doing lots of riding in the local hills. One day he hopes to do some racing.
Way to go Nilay !
