Why Cycles | Ambassadors
We feel pretty lucky to have teamed up with these rad people- check ’em out below! Why Cycles ambassadors are riders who share our passion for creating awesome experiences on bicycles, whether in a race, a group ride, or a solo, multi-day bikepacking expedition. Bikes are about more than fancy titanium and neat frame features- they’re about improving our lives and the lives of others around us, one pedal stroke at a time. These ambassadors exemplify that attitude to the highest level- so if you see them out on the trail give them a big ol’ high five and check out their sweet Why Cycles bikes that they’re riding.
I am a self employed engineer from a small village in the West of Ireland on the shores of Lough Corrib. Bicycles and cycling is a way of life for my family. From mountainous adventures on our doorstep to international racing events, we get a buzz from all the places, experiences and people that we meet along the way.
Bryon & Becky Vordermann
Bicycles have been Bryon’s love and passion for almost his entire life. BMX racing dominated almost 25 years. Bryon has at some point competed in almost every discipline in cycling. Somewhere along the way Bryon fell in love with mountain biking, especially the climbing and suffering part of it. In the past few years he has discovered bikepacking, and the absolute joy of bike rides that literally last for days!
Bryon met Becky in 2015 and since they have started a family together. Bryon introduced Becky to fat biking shortly after they had April in October 2016. Becky has since fallen in love with cycling and has participated in gravel, cyclocross, and endurance fat bike racing. April got her first Burley around the same time Becky got her fat bike, and in the summer of 2017 the family began bikepacking together.
They spent 2 weeks on the Idaho Hot springs Route in June and then in August completed a 900 mile tour of Alaska on their fat bikes with April in the Burley.
As a family, they hope to promote and encourage others to explore by fat bike.

Kim spent the majority of her life traveling the world in search of adventure. Her quests have taken her everywhere from mountains in Nepal, kayaking at the pre-worlds in Spain, to surfing in Bali. It wasn’t until Kim was recovering from a serious injury in her early 30’s that she discovered her true passion for mountain biking and creating long distance routes. Kim has since logged thousands of miles on the trail. Her goals have always been to simply savor the journey and the people she meets along the way.
That changes on any given day. There are so many incredible trails out there!

I’m “Fixie” Dave Nice head service guru, wrench, mechanic at Cafe Velo. I’ve been riding since training wheels but the last 15 years I’ve rarely coasted. I’m obsessed with long distance routes and self supported bikepacking.

I spend my days as a high school counselor and Cross Country coach and my afternoons and weekends in the saddle. While not a fan of reducing oneself to compartmentalized labels, when forced to I self-identify as a Vegan, exercise addict, and mountain biking enthusiast who uses the dark and dreary days of winter to dream up future bikepacking trips for the spring and summer, with a few winter bikepacking mistakes thrown in for good measure.
