Our Fearless Leader

Susan Jones and Electric Scooter

 

 

Who’s in charge of this operation, anyway?

Our fearless leader, Susan Jones of Xenon Motors, is pretty phenomenal. Not only is she the brains behind this operation, but her creativity + passion is the driving force behind the Tour. Without Susan, the Tour would not exist and we wouldn’t be gearing up to ride into the electric future. When she’s not busy working hands-on on every element of the coolest green event ever, Susan is the person you want to be best friends with. I caught up with the lady herself  via the magical interweb since she currently resides in Bangkok, Thailand (um amazing right??) to get the inside scoop on what makes her tick.
