     In an attempt to become well acquainted with the 2014-15 Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Wheelmen community, Christopher Ha marks the sixth rider spotlight. The following information was provided as a set list of questions that Ha cruised through, while providing a few laughable answers. All responses are unedited.

How long have you been a member of the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Wheelmen or Wheelwomen?
I have been a member of the Wheelmen since fall 2012. I want to be a part of the Wheelwomen, but they reject me every year.

What is your favorite part of the Wheelmen and cycling, in general?
My favorite part about the Wheelmen is the group of people that make up the club. Everyone is always stoked on riding bikes and willing to give a helping hand to the other members. What I enjoy about cycling is exploring new areas that I would have never been able to with a car.

What cycling disciplines are you involved with?
I think I may be one of the biggest roadies on the team… I wanted to get more involved in mountain bikes. However, an unfortunate event prevented me on purchasing one last summer.

Please describe your favorite San Luis Obispo ride.
Definitely Old Santa Rita

What are you interested in accomplishing, with the Wheelmen, throughout 2014 and 2015?
This year I want to get more people more involved in racing in the WCCC.

What are you studying at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo?
I’m on my (hopefully) last year in graduate school studying Biomedical Engineering.

What is your favorite genre of music and your favorite song?
It changes every season. As of now, I’m into anything with jazz-vibe to it. If you ask me again tomorrow, it may change. Edo Lee – Seguido is one of my favorites.

Do you prefer “SLO Donut Company” or “Old West Cinnamon Rolls”?
SLO Donut Company since it’s right across the street!

Please provide us with one interesting fact about yourself.
I won “Best Tanlines” in the 2014 road season for the Wheelmen!

Aside from cycling and education, what occupies your time?
Although I don’t think I’m too good at it, I enjoy cooking.
