Bike To Work Barb To Lead Bicycle Alliance Of Washington

Congratulations to Bike to Work Barb! After tirelessly advocating for bicycling on our side of the state, she has been hired to lead the Bicycle Alliance of Washington in Seattle! Barb has been on our Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) since its inception and has volunteered her time on many other committees and events, particularly the annual Bike to Work Week. She is a daily bike commuter and launched the blog, Bike Style Spokane, as a way to encourage more women to try biking.

Barb says this is a dream come true for her. We will miss her on the TAC but will still be able to work with her on non-motorized projects.
She takes over as Executive Director of the Alliance in August. Here's the press release if you want to know more.
