If you’ve been involved in the Provo cycling community, you’ve probably met Tod. Tod Robbins rides a magenta ’73 Schwinn Collegiate with an original speedometer and a brass bell. He has pedaled his vintage ride for over 1,000 miles and often chooses cycling over driving.
“Things seem richer in Provo when riding a bike,” says Tod. “It lets me explore at a faster pace than my feet – discovering new neighborhoods and places you would usually just drive by. When you’re on your bike, you discover all sorts of neat things.”
Although he is leaving for graduate school this summer, Tod has worked tirelessly over the past months to improve bicycle culture and community in Provo. He’s leaving the city better than he found it – hopefully he’ll be surprised at the progress we’ve made when he returns.
