If youâ€™ve been involved in the Provo cycling community, youâ€™ve probably met Tod. Tod Robbins rides a magenta â€™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.
â€œThings seem richer in Provo when riding a bike,â€ says Tod. â€œIt lets me explore at a faster pace than my feet â€“ discovering new neighborhoods and places you would usually just drive by. When youâ€™re on your bike, you discover all sorts of neat things.â€
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. Heâ€™s leaving the city better than he found it â€“ hopefully heâ€™ll be surprised at the progress weâ€™ve made when he returns.
