Bob Fitton - Board member - This email address is being protected from spambots.

She also enjoys training new Pilots and Safeties. There is so much enthusiasm that a lot of Volunteers are needed! She is currently enjoying her “practice retirement.” She has been a flight attendant for 38 years but is on a voluntary leave while the airline industry recovers from the pandemic. This allows more time for cycling!

 Lanie Cates  - Vice President - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ,retired to Sequim, after 41 + years with Pacific Bell, from 411 Operator to Construction Splicer. She found out about Sequim Wheelers from her neighbor, donated to their Go Fund Me, and let Nicole know she wanted to ride. She jumped in, the 1st volunteer Pilot to be trained, most rides given 2 years in a row. She especially likes the demonstration rides, getting the shy seniors to try it out, joining in their laughter, encouraging their stories from childhood. You can find her showing off the Bikes at the Farmers Market, Lavender Festival, Irrigation Festival, Tour de Lavender. Whenever I get on a bike I feel like a little kid again. I want to give our Wheelers a ride with the wind in their hair, going faster than walking, out in nature, no cars.
