Welcome Ben, Taran, Aidan


Taran Volckhausen

We are excited to welcome some new staff! You’ll see these faces in and around our shop. Welcome Ben Eck, Taran Volckhausen and Aidan Johan to Community Cycles.

Ben joined Community Cycles as a Mechanic in 2018 and shares his love of bikes as a vehicle for sustainable transportation and fun. When he’s not fixing bikes, Ben dreams up bikepacking routes and pretending to have a wicked pissah Boston accent. Mysterious bottom bracket creaks haunt his dreams. 

Taran joined Community Cycles as Multicultural Outreach Coordinator in August 2019. After living, working and biking for nearly five years in Medellin, Colombia. He’s excited to use his Spanish language skills and cultural experiences to help bring together a more enthusiastic and diverse cycling community in Boulder. Reudelo, ruedelo!! Dele, dele, dele!!

Aidan joined Community Cycles in January 2019. He brings a desire to help people keep their bikes on the road and a passion for alternative transportation. You can find Aidan, throughout Boulder and Boulder County. He teaches neighborhood based bike maintenance and safe riding classes. Outside of work Aidan can be found in class, or running on the trails through out the county.
