Meet a WE Biker: Evonne Cho

Every volunteer brings something special to our organization. And WE count on them—whether they’re leading our rides or writing our newsletters or responding to mail or building our website. This month’s volunteer is Evonne Cho. Get to know her here!

What was your first WE Bike NYC ride?
My first ride was a ride to the 9W market. I was a floater and it was a blast!

What’s your favorite route?
My favorite route is the south county trail to north county trail, hands down!
 
What do you ride?
I have to acknowledge my first two rides. I got a rebuilt commuter, however it was tough on the bridge with just 3 gears so I sold it pretty quickly. The second was an entry-level road bike which was stolen after 5 years of service. It was such a great fun ride. My ride now is the Surly Crosscheck. It’s an awesome city commuter, great for accommodating fat studded tires for winter ice and snow, and it’s great for light bike camping. It’s a dream bike that does it all in this city!
 
Why do you love WE Bike NYC?

I love WE Bike NYC because WE are so helpful to people of all walks who are trying to find their footing and bearings when it comes to getting around on bikes or finding fitness thru cycling — and doing so with their kids through the sub group Moms on Wheels. The community is a strong one and it’s helpful to connect with parents who are going through the same struggles and to pass on that knowledge to new parents. Finding a nice ride, and seeing the city from above the ground instead of by subway, is a real treat and one of the few joyful ways to commute in this city. Sharing that wonder with the kids is also amazing. And finding out all these secret paths to moving around the city and out of it to NJ, upstate NY and Long Island is really awesome. I love to connect to all the cyclists and hear the ins and outs of cool-to-experience routes that only we cyclists know about. Knowledge sharing among peers has been a great way to share this experience with community.

WE Can’t Do It Without You!
