Schwinn is excited to announce the 2017 Schwinn Ambassadors. Each Ambassador was hand selected to represent Schwinn through their unique bicycle journey! Some Ambassadors will be taking you on a 365 day adventure, while others will show you how their bicycle is an extension of their life and personal style. With a common goal, Schwinn, along with each of our 2017 Ambassadors realize the joy, sense of freedom, and health benefits that go along with riding a bicycle.
Without further adieu, meet the Schwinn Ambassadors!
Hello, my name is David Lowe and I am the Lead Brand Ambassador at Schwinn. I have a thirst for adventure and quench myself on debarking on a dapper experience. Similar to my awesome bike rides I am maneuvering myself through life as recent graduate. I have adopted the moniker “Double-Lowe-7.” I am an explorer by day, dreamer by night, “You only live twice”.
I am thrilled to continue my journey with Schwinn cruising with my fleet of Schwinn beauties.

My name is Kiermoni Allison and I am an avid cyclist in the city of Newark, New Jersey. Biking has always struck me as a sense of escape and freedom. Bikes not only grant you the mobility of two wheels, but also a sense of exploration and agility that I think is marginal in other forms of transportation. I started biking around Newark in 2013, finding my way through dirt paths and across bridges. At first it was for practical reasons, like saving money on gas but it has become much more than that. Biking has allowed me to rediscover Newark, an ability to search, learn, and see the city in ways I haven’t before. My passion for riding is influenced by the many people who ride in big cities like New York and Boston, in addition to European cities such as London and Amsterdam. I am proud to be a Schwinn Ambassador to revitalize the bike culture in my neighborhood and connect with other cyclists.

My name is Sam Bate and I am a senior at Anderson University. I started taking photos four years ago and I haven’t been able to put my camera down since. Storytelling drives my photography. It is my deepest aspiration to capture scenes that detail the intricacies of humanity. I am driven by my great appreciation of photography and film and devoted to creating timeless pieces. My art is characterized by natural light, raw emotion, authentic stories, and pure beauty. I try to spend every free moment outside, observing and collecting moments given to me by the incredible outdoors.
I am eager to explore and challenge myself through my partnership with Schwinn. I love helping people find their confidence through my photos, and I’ve found I also love empowering people to live more happy and healthy lives. Biking, to me, is a vehicle to enforce my weight loss journey and promote my fitness-centered college lifestyle.

David “Dave” Becker runs a private training shop and also leads his own Airdyne team based in Austin, TX. He can best be described as gruff but affectionate father to his loyal pack of renegades, providing them with barbecue, protection, and a rough moral code to live by.
He is strong, religious man and considered to be a caretaker that always puts family first. On Sunday’s, he traditionally has a neighborhood barbecue following the community church service. Amusingly, its known that those that did not attend the service are not welcome to any BBQ. The only other rule; you can have whatever beer you want, as long as it’s a Corona!
Dave’s love for the outdoors and fitness started at a very young age. His father was an Airdyne enthusiast and would build ‘Frankenstein’ bikes to train on. Being brought up on such a raw character building machine, Dave was never really able to ‘chill out’.

Jen Beth & Dustin Schmidt
Triathletes Jennifer and Dustin met on their triathlon team and share a love of biking (and swimming and running). Some of their favorite Schwinn memories include exploring National Parks by bike, camping, and exploring the Madison, WI area that they call home. While Jennifer is off in Illinois for PA school, Dustin is keeping busy by training for ultra marathons, and will be completing his first 50 miler in 2017! When they aren’t out swimming, biking, running, or eating, the couple can be found with a cup of coffee (or let’s be honest, the whole pot), nerding out over Star Wars, or cooking delicious food together. They are so excited to join the Schwinn Ambassador team for 2017 to show how anyone can begin to live a healthy life!

Hello! I’m Sarah Brookhart, a 25 year old wedding and lifestyle photographer. I live in downtown Baltimore, MD with my husband and our two cats, Jean-Ralphio and Mona Lisa. My photography is largely inspired by the notion of capturing the beauty found in fleeting moments. When not behind the camera, I can be found drinking too much coffee, underlining compelling sentences in books, and starting dance parties. I am excited to be teaming up with Schwinn as an Ambassador this year. I look forward to documenting my downtown and traveling lifestyle on my Schwinn bicycle!

Lindsey Casella, also goes by her initials LC (which is not to be confused with the reality star that lived in the Hills in the early 00s). In the words of Taylor Swift, Lindsey is currently embracing “feeling 22”. This east coast born, raised, and educated girl casually moved her life the across the country the Monday after graduation to pursue her dream job with retail powerhouse, Victoria’s Secret PINK. She makes a living through her passion, marketing, and is actively pretending to fit-in the mid-west. When not working (if that’s what you can call spending your 9-5 living your dream) this city and life lover, has been trying to discover her new surroundings while re-discovering herself. Lindsey has been picking up post grad hobbies for her nights and weekends, including launching a new personal/lifestyle blog, and quality bonding with her new friends and side-kick, Winston Bishop the cat.
One of things she’s most excited for? Continuing her journey with Schwinn for a second year.

Jesse Christiansen is a singer-songwriter who hails from a small town in north-central Maryland. He is passionate about music, “bad” puns (he doesn’t think they’re bad…), and good coffee. Jesse believes in the power of transparency and honesty, which is evident in his lifestyle and song lyrics. You will most likely find him sharing in deep conversations with close friends over a quality cup of coffee and a massive blueberry muffin. Over the past few years, Jesse Christiansen’s music career has taken him all over the US and parts of Europe. (His lady, Karlie Pickett, created a mini-documentary of his fall 2016 tour that was published/sponsored by Schwinn)
Jesse loves to be outside in the fresh air; he looks forward to when his car is in the shop because that forces him to slow down and ride his bike. A favorite tradition of his is going on a bike trip in the fall in the Appalachian Mountains–camping along the Potomac River and biking the C&O Canal with some of his closest friends.
Jesse’s outlook on life is one of freedom and pursuit. Fueled by his faith and love of people, learning, and adventure, there will always be something exciting up his sleeve.

I love Schwinn bikes that’s why in 2016 I started the online community for Russian owners of Schwinn bicycles. As a Schwinn Ambassador, I plan to involve more people in a healthy and stylish Schwinn life. I will also share my experiences when cycling in my beautiful city – Moscow.
Let’s go Schwinning!

Hey everyone! My name is Craig Diviny and I am a 21-year-old Philadelphia native currently studying advertising at Temple University. I enjoy art, photography, sports, and just about anything that has to do with the great outdoors. I love exploring the city in my spare time and snapping photos of anything that catches my eye.
When I am out of class and have free time in the summers, I like to travel. I may be from the City of Brotherly Love, but Wildwood, NJ is like a second home to me. Wildwood is a vibrant beachfront town along the Southern coast of the Jersey Shore. It is a place where you leave the car at home and ride your bike everywhere.
Life is a journey and it is one I hope to capture with the help of my Schwinn. Becoming an Schwinn Ambassador is truly an amazing opportunity and I could not be more excited for the road ahead.

We are a family of five living in sunny South Carolina. Matthew (dad) is my sweetheart and a classically trained cartographer who currently runs the coolest beach bar. I am a commercial photographer and a work at home mom. We met in the Caribbean when Matthew offered me a slice of pizza. We have lived in Europe and the Caribbean before moving to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Hilton Head Island is a bikers dream with over 60 miles of bike paths that connect you to amazing beaches, fun forest trails and awesome cupcake shops. We can’t wait to explore the island on bicycle (with cameras) and take fun weekend bike trips to some of the other beautiful locations nearby.
The children are Piper (age 10), Oli (age 2) and Milo (6months). Piper is a free-spirited adventurer who speaks Mandarin fluently and has won the science fair twice. Oli is working on his English and loves looking up at the moon. Milo babbles, crawls and is curious about everything. I blog about raising happy healthy good people and cannot wait to join the Schwinn team and share those adventures.

I am Hannah and this is my little wolfpack. We are full on living in toddlerville. Always on the go, always full of laughs and minor meltdowns. We love to see new places, meet new people and give lots of hugs.
Vinny is going to be 5 and is quite the showstopper. He is the first to put on a show and make you laugh doing outrageous things. He will be learning how to ride a bike this year and he’s so excited to “go super fast and not stop..unless you tell me to…or a car comes” He’s a dream first child.
Mia is 2 (going on 16…) and is her own person. She is the definition of a “threenager” and we love her spicy attitude. Mia generally likes animals more than people. She will be the first to smile in front of the camera but also the first to say “leave me alone” She is fearless and feisty. And definitely just like her momma.
I am a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Poughkeepsie NY and working all over the globe. I love to travel and I would love for my kids to catch the travel bug. Our new year’s resolution is to see more places and we plan to accomplish that. I live for coffee, warm weather and my family. I met my husband Matt through my brother (also named Matt) and we have been inseparable for 6 years. He is the calm to my storm and the best father to our kids. Matt and I work a lot so when we get family time it means a lot to us.

I’m Abbey McGrew and I’m the owner behind Wayfarer Design Studio – a traveling web and graphic design studio. Having grown up in the mountains of West Virginia, I have always had a deep appreciation for nature and an adventurous spirit. I first started biking on a section of the Appalachian Trail along the Greenbrier River in southern West Virginia, but with Schwinn, I’ll be taking my bike to very different parts of the world.
In May 2016, my husband and I started our journey traveling around the world over the next few years. We are currently living in Copenhagen, Denmark, but we will be moving back to Australia in May, and then on to wherever this adventure takes us! As a designer, I love crafting visual stories and I’m excited to share my journey riding my Schwinn bike all over the world – from the cobblestone streets of Copenhagen, to the mountains of West Virginia, to the rainforests and beaches of Australia.

My name is Aimee Miles. I love reading, sewing, and riding my bicycle! I’m a school bus driver. I began riding a Schwinn Gateway between morning and afternoon routes for fun. When my husband and I moved and I found myself located only 3 miles from work, I began commuting. I had the best adventures! I learned to fix my bike, and I even bought a 1972 Schwinn Super Sport with a fillet-brazed frame. I’m going to take it apart and rebuild it just because I can.
I’m here to continue sharing my joy in commuter and utility cycling. It’s never too late to discover the pleasure of taking a little longer to get somewhere. There is a certain confidence that builds inside when arriving somewhere under your own power. You absolutely can go where you need to go in a fun and healthy way. Let me show you how I like to ride my bicycle.
Emilee is a travel addict passionate about weaving adventure into her everyday routine. A born and raised Seattleite, Emilee is a snow capped mountains and fresh salt air kind of girl, having spent much of her time on the Olympic Peninsula, exploring ocean coves with vampires. She bought her first Schwinn 5 years ago and loves taking adventures around her home city; her DSLR in one pocket, and her instant Fuji film in the other. She’s passionate about the arts and loves classical music, visual art and going to theater productions. In her spare time you can find her travel blogging, buying plane tickets, reading comic books and painting geek art for her Etsy shop.

Martin, Susan, & Rocky Neff
Hi. We’re the Neff Family; Martin, Susan, and our canine companion Rocky.
I was born in 1967, and my wife was born in 1964. We met and married 09/10/11. I’ve worked in the automotive industry for over 30 years, and Susan is an Executive Assistant. One of my passions is music. I’ve started playing guitar at 7 and bass at 15. I’ve played in bands most of my life and currently play guitar in a 1960s style Surf band called The Men From S.U.R.F.
In 2011 I suffered what should have been a fatal heart attack. Recovery was slow. My doctor suggested a low impact exercise regiment. I had an old Schwinn Cruiser 7 collecting dust in the garage, so I cleaned it up and got back on the road. After my cruiser was stolen, I replaced it with a Drifter and later added a 411-2. Susan had a Jaguar, and we bought her a Voyageur 2. Once I started riding regularly and began to commute to and from work, we added a Spirit Trailer to our collection so that we could shop and run errands.
In 2015 we found Rocky (actually, he found us). He and I just clicked. From the first day we brought him home, he’s been riding with me in the trailer all over town.
My name is Daniel and I am from the SF Bay Area, CA. I grew up riding and loving bikes. I work in a hospital setting and get to meet a lot of great people every day. I’m also a student striving to become a Physician Assistant.
In my free time, I like to go and enjoy the outdoors with my girlfriend, Jamiee. Whether it’s biking, hiking, taking pictures, or making new friends, we always love to spend our time in the outdoors. I’m very excited to be a part of Schwinn’s Ambassador program and share my stories of my biking adventures.

My name is Jaris (sounds like Paris, but with a J) and I am so excited to be a Schwinn Ambassador once again in 2017! I am a Saulteaux First Nations man from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, and a Lecturer in Pharmacy at the College of Pharmacy and Nutrition at the University of Saskatchewan.

Our Tiny Unit, as we often refer to ourselves consists of Papa (Allen), Mama (Brittany), and our little girl, Adventure Scout. Like any unit or team, we love to do things together whether it’s an adventure in the mountains, scrambling in the desert, or riding our bikes at the beach! Just like any 3 yr old, she’s always trying to grow up faster and has been pleading with us to ride around the neighborhood without our help. You see, bicycling to our family is part exercise, part adventure discovering new pockets of our neighborhood. Giving her the ability to travel, and explore on her own would truly empower her.
Papa Allen loves to explore the mountains, deserts, and forests in search for new heights. He’s always looking new challenges to surmount in his climbing initiatives. While he’s not on an adventure, he enjoys a long road trip and viewing the glories of nature.
Mama Scout loves to travel the world. Her passport book is thicker than most families having lived all over the US, Asia, and Australia. She has plans this summer to visit Europe and Latin America. She’s never one to back down from an adventure, and is always seeking paths untraveled.
Adventure Scout is no different than her parents. Her imagination creates a new adventure daily in her house as if each nook and cranny are a new, unexplored world. She especially loves road trips and patiently endures long drives, since she knows whatever that long road takes her, it’ll be worthy of a new adventure.
