Dax Burgos, Shop Director
Shop Manager Dax brings a strong background in retail experience 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 comes fresh from a recent stint at the Center for Appropriate Transportation where he learned the art of cargo bicycle manufacturing..

Alexey Davies, Membership Director
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.
Jennifer Marie Shriver, Development Director
Jennifer joined Community Cycles in March 2013, leads our grant-writing and fundraising work, and loves telling the Community Cycles story. A life-long environmentalist, Jennifer earned her BA degree at Columbia University and spent a memorable summer in New York City as a bicycle messenger. To date she’s won over $2.5 million in grant funding, and she’s excited to help Community Cycles get a home of its own!

Kerry Kruempelstaedter, Financial Director
Kerry rediscovered bicycling as an adult and loves the sense of freedom and fun it brings. She enjoys commuting around town on the bike paths, pushing herself to climb mountains, sneaking up in the hills for quick overnight bike-camping, and, generally, exploring and experiencing the world by bike. Biking brings Kerry such a fulfilling sense of joy that she’ll never give it up again. Kerry enjoys the opportunity to share this passion with others. Contact her at .
Micah Schwartz, Shop Manager
Micah is 5’11” but jumps much higher. He likes mint chip ice cream and calamari, but not together. He has never tried kite surfing, but thinks he would be pretty good at it. He has been a firefighter, ski instructor, tour guide, waiter, and a lifeguard, and is very happy to be working with bikes. He likes Frisbees, water sports, and Yosemite, and dislikes rain. He runs tubeless on his mountain bike, but respects your personal beliefs with regards to tire size. Contact him at
Sarah began hanging out at Community Cycles as part of the Earn A Bike program in 2013. She now works as a Bike Ambassador and summer camp instructor spreading the good word of cycling throughout the land. She’s always looking for ways to make riding fun and safe, and loves long rides to Fort Collins.
Knox Mannino, Mechanic
Knox Mannino has spent multiple years holding different positions in various bike shops and started working with his own tool set at 11 years old. Knox, also known as the George Clooney of bike mechanics, has not only contributed to the shop outside of wrenching by fully organizing the tool benches, but he has also helped promote cycling advocacy in Boulder. He has participated in workshops and tabling events, helped revamp the PedalSmart curriculum, and constantly yells “on your left” around young children. Contact him at
John O’Kelly, Mechanic
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 P, Mechanic and Learn-A-Bike (LAB)Technician
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.
Katie likes old bikes. She can be found most days in the shop working at the front desk or on one of her vintage bicycle projects.
Sean Obrien, Fleet Mechanic, Camp Instructor
I joined Community Cycles in 2014 as a bike ambassador. Before moving to Boulder I worked as an elementary Art Teacher in the Chicago Public Schools and as a bike messenger in Chicago. I left my car in 2012 and have been commuting by bike ever since and couldn’t be happier. I am currently teaching art in BVSD and working as a bike ambassador, educating and equipping cyclists with knowledge and gear to stay safe and law abiding in Boulder. I am looking forward to instructing summer camp and teaching a new generation of cyclists how to become more independent and knowledgeable on their bikes!
Bruce Piggott, Earn A Bike Coordinator
I became a dedicated cyclist over a decade ago and my first contact with Community cycles was donating a bike in 2008. I became a member and volunteer in 2014 and have never looked back. I thoroughly enjoy all my time spent at CC especially when I’m helping another cyclist repair, maintain or improve their bike.
Michaela Owens, Instructor, Mechanic
Michaela is a Colorado native, born and raised in Denver, but has been in Boulder for the last 6 years. She has been riding a bike since she could walk and today goes everywhere on her bike; it has even taken her down 800 miles of the Pacific Coast. She started wrenching at CU in 2010 and has been passionate about it ever since. Michaela has been working for CC since June 2013 and does a little bit of everything: mechanic, greeter and bike ambassador. She says it is the best job she’s ever had. Contact her at .
Melissa Newton, Project Coordinator
Melissa recently completed her Masters in Liberal Sciences and decided to combine her passion for cycling with her passion for helping others.
