Ann Miers

Volunteer and GRiT Coordinator


I am pretty much a local gal, not born here but raised here. I am the mother of two boys, whom are the reason my husband and I helped start the Galena High School team in 2016. I have a huge passion for this sport and getting more kids out on bikes.  My favorite thing is to ride with the “newbies” and watch them soar at the end of the season. I am still coaching for the Galena team, kids call me Mama Ann and they know they can count on me to keep them organized and well fed during the season 🙂 I love every minute of it!!!
