Doria HarrisDoria’s Gallery
is a 30+ year member of AMC and a cycling enthusiast who thinks AMC's mission of encouraging people to connect with the natural world and cycling is a good fit. She says "8 or 80, one can enjoy biking. Even a trip to the Post Office can be enlivened by biking. When cycling one experiences the smallest changes in smells, temperature, flora, all missed whizzing by in a car."

In addition to commuting by bike throughout her professional life, Doria enjoys long distance self-contained touring as well as brief "credit card" tours and just poking about the rural back roads of New England. Doria likes being an AMC Bike Leader since one of her passions is to turn people onto biking and provide cycling activities so they feel confidant and empowered. Doria’s Gallery

Hiel Lindquist
has been am AMC member for about 20 years. In addition to his trail work, Hiel is an avid cyclist and is also an AMC Bike Leader. Hiel became interested in cycling during the bike craze in the 1970s. He even completed a bike overnight, covering the distance from Concord, NH to the Canadian boarder area in 2 days. He became reacquainted with cycling when he completed his first bicycle tour in 2005. Since then he has completed several long distance trips including the Erie Canal, Washington DC to NYC, Nova Scotia and other trips throughout New England. Hiel rides in the Monadnock region almost every day in the summer. He has favorite routes of 10, 15, and 20 + miles, usually at a leisurely pace. He hopes that by being an AMC bike leader he can help others enjoy the fun of recreational cycling.
