May’s First Wednesday event was a great success. Mountain biking pioneer and Mill Valley native Steve Potts delivered a very thoughtful and engaging presentation to a full house.
In addition to talking about the development of mountain biking he covered much more. Using entertaining stories he talked about growing up in Mill Valley, his travels and discovering his passion for creating and building things – in particular bicycles. That passion steeled him to build a business over the last 40 years that he obviously loves.
Throughout the discussion he offered many life lessons about work, raising a family and giving back to the community. And perhaps most importantly he reminded us of how lucky we are to live where we do.
