Chauncey Tudhope-Locklear, Executive Director aka CBO "Chief Biking Officer"
ChaunceyHello, I'm Chauncey. I grew up in Port Townsend and love living in Jefferson County! I have the privilege of having seen The ReCyclery begin it's journey back in 2007 as a small bike repair clinic in front of The Boiler Room ( and have watched it grow to what it is today. So many people in our community know and believe the power of bicycles can change lives. By getting people active, outside, and on two wheels, the bicycle can shift our culture in a more sustainable and holistic direction. 
         In addition to being the Executive Director of The ReCyclery, I am a Barnett's Bicycle Institute certified pro bicycle mechanic, League of American Bicyclists certified bicycle safety instructor, certified wheel builder from the United Bicycle Institute, and I have attended USA Cycling's pro race mechanic training seminar in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I graduated in 2006 from Port Townsend High School with my AA degree from Peninsula College and I am currently enrolled in the ICF and ACE accredited life coaching program from the international Coaches Training Institute. 
 My experience in adult and youth programming, as well as the non-profit sector, goes back to when I was in high school. I have a deep passion for service and I truly believe that connecting as a community around bicycles is one of the world's greatest tools for addressing the problems of our time. 

Kris Day, Retail Shop Manager/Mechanic

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.

Aliina Lahti, Volunteer, Outreach, and Membership Manager, 
 I love to bike, I love talking about biking and I see  biking as the answer to all our worldly problems: environment, obesity, depression, community connections, road rage, etc. my list could go on forever. I could solve any worldly problem with the bicycle - just ask! Biking is fun. It makes me feel good in my body and mind. I'd gladly tell you more about bikes and how you can help the world by riding one!
