Volunteer of the Month: Leo M.

Teenager fixing bicycleA student at Palo Alto High School, Leo M has been volunteering at the Bike Exchange for two years since a friend recommended he try it. When he looks at the pile of bikes needing repairs, he prefers those which need a lot of work - he relishes changing a completely unrideable bike into one someone can enjoy. He especially likes working on road bikes and is an expert in rebuilding coaster brakes. Leo also enjoys racing road bikes - his own is a Fuji. In addition to riding or working on bikes, he also plays the clarinet.
