Intercity Transit

David Coppley works for Intercity Transit as their Walk N’Roll Program Assistant.  The goal and mission of the program is to educate and encourage youth to get around by biking, walking, and riding the bus to foster a healthy, active community. David works with managing the shop space and coordinating volunteers to repair the bikes received from the local police departments, or unclaimed bikes left on the buses. He coordinates a variety of class formats with students. With middle and high school youth during the summer, he facilitates a mechanics workshop where they build bikes — one for the program and one for themselves. They are taught basic mechanics – how to change flat tires, adjust brakes and shifters. They focus on safe riding skills, and healthy activity.
