Why We Ride Bikes – Noelle’s Story

Posted by Steve Prudente on May 10, 2016

Happy Bike Month!  We’re sharing our employees’ cycling stories all month long to celebrate.  In case you missed them, check out Leigh’s and Elliot’s stories!

Noelle Bilbrough
Manager of Quality Assurance

What is your favorite cycling memory?
That would have to be riding from Germantown to Lemon Hill with Gearing Up.  That was the longest ride I had completed at that time.  Just making it to Lemon Hill and back was an awesome thing for me.

What’s your least favorite or most unexpected cycling memory?
I was 11 or 12.  I was riding my bike when the brakes came loose on the front tire and got stuck in my spokes.  I flipped over before I even realized what had happened.

How often do you choose to ride a bike and why?
I try to ride 3 to 4 times a week. It helps me to clear my head.


Why did you want to work for Wash Cycle Laundry?

I needed a job and wanted to do something different.  I had always worked in retail. Wash Cycle gave me the chance to still work in Customer Service, but also to learn new skill sets.

What’s your earliest bike riding memory?
When I was 10 or 11, I received a blue 10 speed for Christmas.  That was all I really wanted that year.

Finally, what would you say to convince someone to ride a bike?
If I can do it, so can you!

Noelle once won a Breezer from Wash Cycle’s hiring partner Gearing Up for biking over 100 miles. She was one of several employees to participate in #30daysofbiking.
