Mike & Joyce Nelson
Assistant Rider Educators



Hi Everyone,

Joyce and I have been married 33 years and have two kids, Traci and Christopher and two grandsons Connor 14, and Max 4.

We joined Chapter U in 2006. We were chosen as Chapter U’s Couple of Year for 2009. I was Ride Coordinator in 2009 and then became the Chapter Educator in 2011. In 2012 I became a Parking Lot Facilitator. Joyce became the Chapter Treasure in 2008, CHOY Coordinator 2011, runs the Chapter Store and helps with the scrapbook.

I started riding bikes at age 14 with a 3 ½ horse, Fox Mini bike and then moved up to a 90 cc Honda at 16, and a 350 Kawasaki at 17. Joined the Navy 1974-1979 and saw a lot of Northern Japan on a 650cc Yamaha. In 2003 my brother-in-law loaned me his 920 cc Yamaha which gave me the bug so I bought a 750 Honda. In 2005 I bought my first Gold Wing, a 1984 1200 Interstate and after one year we purchased a 2002, 1800 yellow Gold Wing. We now have a 2010 1800 yellow Trike that was purchased in 2011.

We are excited to be Assistant District Educators for Indiana and look forward to meeting new friends and learn even more safety tips to share.
