Special volunteer shout-out

Since its launch in 2009, the HER Helmet Thursdays Project has been a very time-intensive project, requiring thousands of (all unpaid) hours for Bicycling Monterey’s founder. Additional volunteers are much appreciated, and as noted on the volunteer acknowledgements page, Justin Leong is among them.

Justin Leong of Santa Clara County, a stellar volunteer
Justin enjoys biking—whether alone, with friends, or with his brother or entire family. He’s also a tech-savvy young man who spent most of summer 2015 in Monterey County doing a computer-related internship. So what else did he do while he was here? Contributed volunteer hours in support of the HER Helmet Thursdays Project and other Bicycling Monterey projects.
In spring 2018, Justin Leong devoted many volunteer hours again, this time making general updates to the hundreds of HER Helmet Thursdays database listings. That required a trusted volunteer who could be counted on to complete a tedious tech task with impeccable accuracy. Justin was the man!
Any time you access the HER Helmet Thursdays database (e.g., by clicking on any spot on the HER Helmet Thursdays map, or clicking on any participant’s name in the HER Helmet Thursdays Guide – 8th Anniversary Edition), you benefit from Justin’s volunteerism.
