Chauncey Tudhope-Locklear, Executive Director aka CBO "Chief Biking Officer"
Kris Day grew up in the fields and woods of New England, hiking and climbing, sailing and riding from an early age. This love of the outdoors followed him to a degree in Outdoor Education and Community Building, encouraging others to get outside and engaged.
Ready for a shift and to focus on family, home and farm, he recently stepped down as Chief of an historic sailing vessel but will still occasionally get out sailing with students. He's excited to help fix up old bicycles to get folks out on the road and trail, feeling the wind on their faces, keeping themselves active, and doing something good for the environment. With plenty of experience as a mechanic, and more as a program leader and educator, it's a comfortable fit to manage the repair shop at the ReCyclery, working alongside people of all ages and backgrounds to move toward sustainable transportation and reuse.
When not on a bike about town or out on the water, he can be found in the fields and forest of the Peninsula, foraging mushrooms, working in the garden, or leading a pack of ducks across the land.
