I get to meet a lot of people and one of my favorites is Chris Kegel. Chris is the owner of Wheel and Sprocket in Milwaukee, a long time Trek retailer, and one of our biggest and best.
Why I like Chris Kegel:1. Whenever I see him he has a really big smile. It’s always there!
2. Chris is fun! At Saturday's event Chris hosted the Wisconsin Bike Fed awards and dressed up in a tux. I wore jeans.
3. Chris has been a tireless advocate for cycling. He's always at the National Bike Summit, on the board of IMBA, leading the way in Wisconsin, and advocating for better bike facilities in Milwaukee. He joined the advocacy train early and has made a HUGE difference not only in Wisconsin, but around the United States.
4. Chris helps people. Chris does a lot of work for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and has been one of the lead organizers for the Trek 100, which benefits kids with cancer. He always says yes.
5. He sells a lot of Treks.
