Bob Mutchler, or "Motorcycle Bob" as he is referred to by the media, is a successful, fourth generation Northern California piano technician who joined Rotary International in 1970.

At the club level, Bob has served in every Avenue of Service during his tenure as a member of the North Sacramento Rotary Club and has perfect attendance for his entire time in Rotary.  He has also served on numerous District 5180 committees since 1982, including such positions as: Area Representative, District Raffle Chair, Annual Giving Chair, PolioPlus Chair and Area Foundation  Chair and District   Foundation Chair for District 5180.

A multi Paul Harris Fellow and Major Donor, Bob is an avid supporter of the Rotary Foundation.  He was awarded the District 5180 Service Award in 1998 by District Governor Tom Campton, a special District Award for his PolioPlus Motorcycle Rides in 1999 by District Governor Bob Wassum, and the Rotary International Award for Meritorious Service by the Rotary Foundation Trustees in 1998-99, and the Rotary International Regional PolioPlus Service Award for 2002 - 03.

 Bob has been honored with dozens of legislative proclamations from states and cities all over North America, including being presented with keys to cities and days named in his honor across America as he spread the message of PolioPlus to Rotarians and non-Rotarians alike.  He has spoken to legislative bodies, immunization conferences, Rotary conferences and seminars across the continent over the past seven years on the subject of PolioPlus.

 One of the world's top marathon motorcycle riders, Bob has set many world records.  As a result, his story and the story of PolioPlus has received hundreds of publicity spots, including television, radio, newspaper and magazine stories.   Thanks to his efforts, the story of PolioPlus has been publicized in several full feature magazine stories, including Street Bike, MotorcyclistExceptional Parenting and the Rotarian, to name a few.

 His sponsors include BMW Motorcycles, Hannigan Sidecars, Jelly Belly Candies, Inland Business Systems of Sacramento, Alternative Health and Wellness Center of Sacramento, Dave Boles Marketing, Motorcyclists for Awareness of Children's Health, and many, many more.
