“You’ll never know if you don’t try, you’ll never discover if you don’t wander, and you’ll never succeed without determination”
Monica Volk’s first ride on skinny wheels was on the velodrome near her home of Trexlertown, PA. After participating in one of the community programs at the local velodrome as an activity to cross train for tennis, which she played throughout high school. The program taught Volk how to ride a fixed gear and then how to race it. It was a fun and exhilarating experience and she became hooked on the sport ever since. When not on the bike, she is a senior at Penn State University working towards a degree in Toxicology.
