Ryan Miller, in Tahoe.
     In an attempt to become well acquainted with the 2014-15 Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Wheelmen community, Ryan Miller marks the third rider spotlight. The following information was provided as a set list of questions, which Miller rocked. All responses are unedited.

How long have you been a member of the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Wheelmen or Wheelwomen?
This is my first year as a Cal Poly Wheelmen!

What is your favorite part of the Wheelmen and cycling, in general?
My favorite part of the Wheelmen is the common stoke to mountain bike and have a good time out on the trails and in life. I love cycling because it is a way to get out and get some great exercise in. But moreover to hangout and shred with your friends and to meet new people.

What cycling disciplines are you involved with?
I like to spend most of my time riding all mountain (as some would say enduro) but I have raced cross country for a couple years. I also ride and race DH and enduro.

Please describe your favorite San Luis Obispo ride.
I think my favorite spot so far to ride in San Luis Obispo would be Montana De Oro after a nice rain.

What are you interested in accomplishing, with the Wheelmen, throughout 2014 and 2015?
I just hope to get out and meet a bunch of people and shred some trails! On top of that, I would like to try to ride consistently throughout the year to keep myself in good shape for the coming race season, seeing now that this year’s mtb season is coming to a halt unfortunately.

What are you studying at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo?
I am studying Materials Engineering here at Cal Poly.

What is your favorite genre of music and your favorite song?
Oooh, that’s a tough question. I mostly love all types of music and I would have to say my go to music would be country music and my favorite country song would be “Summertime” by
Kenney Chesney.

Do you prefer “SLO Donut Company” or “Old West Cinnamon Rolls”?
Definitely SLODO.

Please provide us with one interesting fact about yourself.
I love trucks and offroading.

Aside from cycling and education, what occupies your time?
Hanging out with friends, skimboarding, surfing, hunting, fishing, and being outdoors.
