El Sol Habla | Ana Tapia & WE-cycle

Hoy en El Sol Habla, Ana Tapia, embajadora española de WE-cycle, nos habla de la ampliación de los servicios a Carbondale el primer viernes de mes, el 4 de agosto. Ana nos da todos los detalles sobre cómo inscribirse y utilizar una de las 80 nuevas bicicletas, la mitad de las cuales son eléctricas.

This week on El Sol Habla, Ana Tapia, WE-cycle's Spanish ambassador, speaks with hosts Raleigh Burleigh and Vanessa Porras about the expansion of the bike share service to Carbondale—and its debut during August's First Friday celebrations. Ana relays all the details on how to sign up and use one of the 80 new bikes, many of which are electric and charged by solar stations around town.

Vanessa is a bilingual and bicultural printmaking artist, educator, and writer. She's passionate about mental health, environmental advocacy, cultural equity, and education as a means to create bridges between the Latino and Anglo communities. She previously served as a board member for The Sopris Sun, where she is now the Editor for the Spanish insert, El Sol del Valle, and writes a monthly column, Al No Artista.
Raleigh Burleigh was raised in the historic floodplanes of Satank. The Carbondale Rotary Club sponsored him as a youth ambassador to Chile the year before his graduation from Roaring Fork High School. He studied International Affairs and Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder then applied those studies traveling throughout South America the following year. Returning to Carbondale thereafter, Raleigh acquired an internship with KDNK News which led to the opportunity to serve as News Director from 2017 to 2019. After another trip to South America in early 2019, Raleigh Burleigh drew deeper into the confluence as Program Director at KDNK. Raleigh now serves on KDNK's board of directors and as editor of Carbondale's weekly newspaper, The Sopris Sun.
