Gaskill became an LCI in 2014 and leads bicycle-related education efforts for the City of Fort Collins, CO, where she acts as a volunteer coordinator overseeing over 120 volunteer Bicycle Ambassadors who are trained to teach others about bicycling and bicycling safety.
Gaskill has educated people from a variety of ages, backgrounds and professions. From elementary school children to state Department of Transportation staff, Gaskill teaches bicycling skills to diverse audiences in ways that are relevant to their perspectives.
