Our VP’s and founding members Jeff Hallman and Theresa Beaulieu are leaving for greener bike paths — Theresa is moving to Tacoma with Jason and Lyanne. Jeff Hallman is moving to Corvallis with Sandi and Nayla. We will miss them, and wish them well.
Now, we need 10 or 12 people to step up and take their places!
Theresa has been our schools activist, starting an after school bike club at Denny Middle School that has become the first Major Taylor Club in a middle school, and doing more now at Kennedy HS. She got grants for Denny and Chief Sealth HS bike wayfinding and parking; started the Denny-Lincoln Classic bike ride; worked tirelessly for a bike corral for White Center businesses, and got us going on social rides. Theresa and Jason show up for our trail cleanups, Bike to Work Day commute station, and vigil rides. Theresa represented Highland Park, White Center and areas nearby in planning for the Bicycle Master Plan Update and the Delridge/Highland Park Greenway.
Jeff is our webmaster extraordinaire, Google Guru, organization development guy, and founder of D.I.Y. Bikes with Stu Hennessey. Jeff got the bike corral at the Junction landed finally. He built a bike blender and generously brought it to make smoothies at Parking Day and Greenlife. Jeff helped lead our West Seattle STP rides and the Denny-Lincoln Classic, did beach cleanup duty with the Alki Beach Creeps, took notes at our meetings, and used his bike mechanic credentials and experience to teach free classes in bike maintenance, all while keeping up his running adventures, starting his own businesses, and becoming a new dad.
