Elle Steele

Biking is a way of life for Bike Tech teacher Elle Steele. She, her children, and their pup get around mainly by bicycle!

Elle has been teaching bicycle education since 2013 and helped create Trips for Kids Sacramento, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing bicycling excursions to underserved students. She says active transportation is often easier than people think. “With a little bit of encouragement and planning, biking can take the stress out of getting around.” 

Elle likes to think she doesn’t fit anyone’s preconceived notion of what a bike mechanic ought to look like. “I’m proud of the work I do as a mechanic,” says Elle. “I like to show people there isn’t anything mysterious about fixing and riding bikes. Anyone can do it with a supportive community and instruction.”
