About Nancy

Nancy Stimsom was a youth pastor who believed in the worth and gifts of each individual to enrich the  world. She was also a passionate cyclist. She founded Freewheelin’ Community Bikes in 2009 to share  practical and intangible life skills with youth. Nancy believed that by teaching youth how to maintain,  repair and ride bicycles we would help promote great citizens of the Indianapolis Community. We all  strive to “be like Nancy.”
