CommonWheels is a team effort! If you bump into people hauling trailers, passing flyers, giving advice, or fixing bikes on the street, it's probably one these folks:

Galen Mook - President/Founder


Jess Robertson - Treasurer


Chris Zielinski - Program Manager

Chris is currently a student at Boston University studying Earth & Environmental Sciences, focusing specifically on Climate Science.  Coming off of a cross-country cycling trip this summer, he was wondering how to get more involved in the Boston bike community upon his return, and CommonWheels was the answer. Passionate about social justice and building communities, he's worked with organizations from Puerto Rico to Oregon, but he's stoked to be turning his attention to the best neighborhood in the country: Allston-Brighton!


Adi Philson - Program Manager

Adi loooooves bikes - talking about bikes, thinking about bikes, going for bike rides, fixing bikes, and getting other people excited about bikes. Adi graduated from the University of Toronto, where she had her first experience with DIY bike clinics and was hooked! Following a 3-day, 300-mile solo ride from Boston to Bangor, a route her mother had biked in her 20s, Adi wanted to continue the journey by getting more involved with bike mechanics and the biking community. Passionate about empowering women within the bike community, she aims to make bike mechanics and repair more accessible to women through her involvement withCommonWheels. Adi is also interested in community building and outreach programs such as CommonWheels as a means to promote well-being through providing supportive frameworks and strengthening social connections. Get ready Allston-Brighton, Adi is psyched to get her hands dirty and share her love of bikes with the CommonWheels community!
