Volunteer of the Month: Marlo Andersen
How did you get involved with the collective? 
I guess I came over here to get some specialized tools to fix up a bike. It was one of my grandchildren’s bikes - could have been anything from a Huffy to a Cannondale. I bring my grandkids into the shop sometimes, too. I had some old bike tools and I realized that the shop would be a good place to donate them. I saw what was going on and I wanted to volunteer. I bought a membership and started coming to volunteer night. This was in the beginning of summer 2017.

What do you enjoy the most about the collective?
Helping people that have a need for time-efficient transportation is what I like most. I enjoy spending time at and providing a service to PBC. They have very worthwhile goals. They always have neat stuff that I like to look at.

Tell us more about how cycling has impacted your life.
Riding bikes has gotten me more interested in how they work. In the last couple of years, I acquired a nice road bike and a nice mountain bike from the collective. I enjoy riding the most up Provo Canyon with my grandkids - how far we go depends on who is with us and how long they last!

What are some of your other hobbies? 
I am a HAM radio operator - I also enjoy experimenting with electronics. I do all of my own auto mechanic work, too. I also dabble in photography with an older 35mm camera, but I don’t have a lot of spare time to dedicate to that.

What should prospective volunteers know about volunteering with PBC?
You get to work with a bunch of real nice people. There’s no one I’ve meet through the collective that I haven’t enjoyed knowing. The program staff really enjoy working with the volunteers and the mechanics have an interest in making the best use of the bikes they repair.

Thank you for all you contribute to PBC, Marlo!
Enjoy the holidays, we'll see you in 2019!
