5 Things With Cyclist Willy Lee

FIVE THINGS WITH CYCLIST AND #30DAYSOFBIKING SUPPORTER WILLY LEE

FIVE THINGS is a feature on the Banjo Brothers Blog. It’s a short interview about life and bicycles with a notable person. This week's notable person is Willy Lee.

Willy is late-bloomer when it comes to bikes, learning to ride a bike when he was 26. Proximity to bike paths has changed his life.

"My wife and I bought a house on the chain of lakes and she said, we are not living on these great bike paths and not riding them, so she dragged me to a couple of bike shops and made me buy a bike. LOL, the joke’s on her. I now own 11.5 bikes (one is a unicycle.) I worked weekends at a shop for a few years, and have really fallen into a big bike family"

Willy is also a #30daysofbiking diehard and he thinks you should totally join the herd this April.
