We'd like to offer a warm welcome to our newest board member, Eric Evans. Eric, who is now our VP of Membership, is originally from Oregon and has been a SAW member since 2016. He is currently a software engineer for Wikipedia and is also a volunteer developer for the Apache Software Foundation and the Debian GNU/Linux project.
Eric and his wife, Darla, are blessed with two children. Their daughter is studying to become veterinarian. And their son has made them grandparents with a five-year old daughter of his own.
Although he’s been on a bike for a good part of a quarter of a century, it’s only during the last four years that he’s become a serious road cyclist. His Texas rides include Ft. Davis Cyclefest and the Mount Locke Climb on his Orbea Avant. His all-time favorite ride is The Paradise Loop in California. Of course, he enjoys our local club rides. His favorite club ride is our Garden Ridge-Gruene Latte ride.
When Eric is out of town on business, he combines work with pleasure by renting a road bikes. He's had great rides in Geneva, Vancouver, San Francisco, Montreal, Valencia, and Cape Town.
When he's not riding, he enjoys brewing beer. Be sure to catch Eric on one our club rides!
