Kenny Arimoto '12 has been riding fixed gear bicycles for two years and spends more time on wheels than on foot. Every trip to class and every visit to the bike shop is an opportunity to spend more time honing his skills. He has used those skills to compete and even place in local competitions.

Kenny's abilities have even earned him sponsorship by Destroy, a bike shop in Redwood city.

When he's not on his bike or in the classroom, Kenny works in sales for a San Francisco bike messenger bag company called Chrome.

With his torn jeans and American flag bandana, Kenny certainly looks the part. More importantly, his passion for the sport is evident in the way he talks about it.

“Everything about bicycling is rewarding,” he says.
