Welcome to our new Board Members!

Last Saturday night, we held our first annual membership party. In short, it was amazing. We are continually amazed by how supportive, energetic, and diverse our community is. It is folks such as yourselves that give us the energy to keep on fostering the community of people who ride bikes in Raleigh.

To recap, we had five board positions open for election in 2017:

  • Administrative Coordinator
  • (2) At Large Coordinator
  • External Coordinator
  • Membership Coodinator
 All of the nominees gave wonderful, passionate speeches and the effects were apparent. This was an incredibly close race,  and there were no wrong choices. Without further ado this year’s new board members are:
  • Administrative Coordinator: Ken Bowers
  • At Large Coordinator: Renee Foster
  • At Large Coordinator: Athena Wollin
  • External Coordinator: Harry Rybacki
  • Membership Coordinator: Hannah Rainey

To each of the nominees, thank you. You have all demonstrated a commitment to your community that goes above and beyond the norm. We are looking forward to working with each of you over the next two years as we continue to mature our organization and make riding a bike in Raleigh a safe, convenient, and comfortable option for people of all ages and abilities.

Moving Forward into 2017!
