Sue joined Community Cycles as our Advocacy Director in 2008, bringing over fifteen years experience in bicycling programming and non-profit administration from her work as Executive Director of the Greater Philadelphia Bicycle Coalition, where she helped create one of the first bicycle infrastructures in the US. Sue has worked as a bicycle planner for engineering firms in Philadelphia and Denver, and is a strong, dedicated advocate of urban bicycle commuting.
Dax brings a strong background in retail to his position, leading our bike recycling and re-use efforts through our retail shop—also known as Bike Donation Central, yes we take anything “bike.” Dax has been with us since 2012, coming from a stint at the Center for Appropriate Transportation where he learned the art of cargo bicycle manufacturing.

Alexey spent too much time in the corporate world polishing his business skills. Now he’s free to do what he loves, creating a culture of cycling at Community Cycles. Alexey is an avid mountain biker / bike commuter who eschews the car in Boulder, but somewhat hypocritically still has a passion for a good road trip for remote multi-day outdoor adventures.
Ann has commuted by bicycle whenever possible for over 20 years, joining bicycle advocacy organizations wherever she lands. She has lived in Boulder since 2009. In addition to commute cycling, Ann enjoys road cycling and easy bike touring.
A long time bike commuter and avid urban cyclist, Sandee started out as a volunteer and Board Member at Community Cycles, becoming a staff member in 2022 with a specialty in marketing and program management.
A graduate of Barnett Bicycle Institute as well as the holder of a doctorate in Theology and Literature from the University of Notre Dame, Justin sees working with bicycles and books as a way of acknowledging and responding to the social, economic and environmental suffering of the world. It is his hope to do so by serving at Community Cycles as Production Manager alongside his work as a Lecturer at the University of Colorado Boulder. Justin loves the faithful practicality of his Bridgestone MB-3 bicycle as much as he adores the fiery prophecy of the New England Transcendentalists, and he's as happy rambling about on the back roads of Gold Hill as he is rambling about Ralph Waldo Emerson’s sermons in class.
Thomas joined Community Cycles as a Production Mechanic in August 2020 after having been a member and volunteer for several years. He liked the vibe so much as a member and volunteer that he just had to jump on the opportunity to wrench on bikes part time for CC and absolutely loves it. Road and mountain biking are his pastimes but did do a long stint doing triathlons as well. Perhaps his strongest cycling passion to date is for using a bike for anything he can around town no matter the weather and showed he was serious when he dropped his car in 2019.
My friends and I used to ride bikes everywhere as kids. I got my first real road bike in high school. I raced bikes on the road through college in Tucson, AZ. I did most of my own wrenching during that time. Much later on, I ended up in Colorado. I heard about Community Cycles and started volunteering in October of 2012. After putting in close to 1000 volunteer hours, I was brought on part time. It’s been a blast!
Will has a soft spot for teaching and helping people learn new things, especially bikes. He loves it when it is crazy busy in the shop and gets to juggle 5-6 projects at once.
Mary is CC's resident front desk receptionist, though lately they have been taking charge of daily shop processes and organization to fight against the inevitable wave of entropy that comes with taking donations. Mary is newly into biking, and considers themself to be a "middling" bike mechanic, most proficient at wheel overhauls. Mary is also an avid doodler, and there's a high chance that you'll see their drawings while being rung up!
Seth started volunteering at CC early in 2020, and was hired on as a sales associate that summer. Taking note of his child-like naiveté, and eagerness to throw himself on proverbial "land mines" around the shop, we tasked him with the catastrophe that was the "wheel processing table.” His learning curve was more of a vertical wall, and we were all astonished and amazed as he took to it like Mikey from the Life Cereal commercial. Co-workers and customers alike have come to him for custom wheel builds and advice on proper wheel selection. CC's wheel selection is now a curated collection, displayed like the Pearl Street Christmas decorations in winter.
Mark started off as a volunteer at Community Cycles. He was recognized right away as someone with a knack for finding the right bike for each person who came into our shop seeking a new (to them) bike. If you see him in the shop, ask him how many bikes he's sold this year. He'll know!
JP, as he's known around the shop, has worked in many roles at Community Cycles, from Sales to Mechanic. Currently he works on our Fleet program, going out to local businesses, organizations and communities to keep their in-house bikes in tip-top shape.
I’m Zoe! I love all kinds of biking from practicing wheelies with my friends to bikepacking adventures. I’ve coached a few girls mountain bike programs and love sharing my passion with others. I study Environmental Product Design and race downhill mountain bikes for CU. I’m excited to be a part of CC and help get more people out on bikes!e.
