Wheelmen Rider Spotlight #8: Jeffrey Shen

Although it has become a less frequent segment, in an attempt to become well acquainted with the 2014-15 Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Wheelmen community, Jeffrey Shen marks the eighth rider spotlight. The following information was provided as a set list of questions that Shen humorously answered. All responses are unedited.

How long have you been a member of the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Wheelmen or Wheelwomen?
I loafed around freshman year and officially joined my second year, so like 3.5 years.

What is your favorite part of the Wheelmen and cycling, in general?
Being able to do what you enjoy with other people. Riding bikes is fun, but it’s all in vain if you cannot share that joy with other people. Anyone who is down to go outside and enjoy some fresh air is a winner in my books.

What cycling disciplines are you involved with?
Everything except country.

Please describe your favorite San Luis Obispo ride.
Whatever has the most sunshine, Froom Creek to Costco jumps has been hitting the spot lately.

Jeffrey Shen. 
What are you interested in accomplishing, with the Wheelmen, throughout 2014 and 2015?
To hopefully use my experience of riding bicycles to help others who are interested in the sport to get on their bike more!

What are you studying at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo?
Cellular and Molecular Biology.

What is your favorite genre of music and your favorite song?
Christmas music or any remix of Lorde.

Do you prefer “SLO Donut Company” or “Old West Cinnamon Rolls”?
SloDoCo, cuz it’s 15 miles closer and they give you a free one if you buy 12.

Please provide us with one interesting fact about yourself.
Everything that happens in my dreams comes true.

Aside from cycling and education, what occupies your time?
The existential struggle to find motivation to pursue my individual will while also remaining close to the sanctuary of mediocrity in life.
