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, Anthony Fryer marks the ninth rider spotlight. The following information was provided as a set list of questions that Fryer thoroughly answered. Be sure to check out some rad music suggestions. All responses are unedited.

How long have you been a member of the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Wheelmen or Wheelwomen?
This is my third year as a Wheelmen, and my first on the officer core.  I’ve tried running for Women’s / Wheelwomen social coordinator but never get voted in. 

What is your favorite part of the Wheelmen and cycling, in general?
Cycling is the best therapy, but being on the wheelmen is even better.  Riding with likeminded individuals, training and racing together can create great memories and bonds. 

What cycling disciplines are you involved with?
Anything in spandex. 

Please describe your favorite San Luis Obispo ride.
A south county loop that includes a stop at Old West Cinnamon Rolls or the beach and ends with a rip down Prefumo Canyon. 

What are you interested in accomplishing, with the Wheelmen, throughout 2014 and 2015?
Creating a more social club atmosphere while also traveling and racing the WCCC calendar. 

What are you studying at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo?
Mechanical Engineering. 

What is your favorite genre of music and your favorite song?
90’s Hip Hop, but I appreciate anything funky.  Favorite song is “It Wasn’t Me” by Shaggy, ‘cause if you can’t groove to that there’s something wrong with you.  

Do you prefer “SLO Donut Company” or “Old West Cinnamon Rolls”?
Back when I was trying to pick a school, my Dad took me to Old West.  Now I’m here at Cal Poly, so I guess you could say I really really like Old West. 

Please provide us with one interesting fact about yourself.
I did a triathlon in a speedo one time.  Thankfully my triathletitis didn’t develop into a serious issue. 

Aside from cycling and education, what occupies your time?
Kids are able to do stuff other than ride and school? But I do like an occasional yoga class.
