Everyone here at BORP wishes to express our gratitude for Joe Melancon, our BORP bus driver who retired at the end of 2017. Joe safely transported program participants for many years. He applied his knowledge of Bay Area backroads, highways and byways to ensure the best route possible for BORP adventures. The youth enjoyed talking to Joe about school, music, sports, and life goals during their shuttles. Joe’s cheerful nature, story sharing, and bonus tour guiding will be sorely missed! We hope to see him at BORP functions this year and possibly riding at the Cycling Center.
