Meet Taylor Williams!
Hey! My name is Taylor Williams and I’m honored to be WABA’s new Youth and Family Education Coordinator!
Throughout my career as an educator and coach I have always believed that every learner deserves an environment where they feel safe to have fun, take risks, and push the limits of their new skills. Being bad at something is always the first step to becoming great at it, but it can be hard to push through that initial period of challenge without anyone in your corner. That’s why I am thrilled to join WABA and continue the work of creating welcoming spaces that empower as many folks as possible, to build the confidence and skills needed to utilize bikes in a way that brings more joy and agency to their lives.
I’m a lifelong lover of biking who still remembers saving up chore money as a kid to buy their very own purple Mongoose. As a Northern VA native, I’ve been blessed with access to local trails in the D.C. area where I can spend time connecting with friends and family. Over the past four years I have also been able to take advantage of the well developed bike and trail system in South Korea during my commute to work as a Fulbright English Language Teacher, and in my free time.
I’m looking forward to contributing to the growth of a youth and family cycling community closer to home, one that is excited about utilizing our local bike infrastructure as it continues to incorporate equity and accessibility. If you have any questions or great ideas about how we can continue to serve our local youth and family biking needs, I’m eager to hear from you! You can reach me by email at email@example.com.
We’d also love to have you and your family join us, so please, come on out to our classes and events and get in on the fun!
