Who we are
Board of Directors
Sarah moved to Rhode Island from northern Idaho, where bicycling for transportation was impractical due to distances between things. In Rhode Island, she is passionate about helping others embrace this fantastic way of getting around! A technical writer by day, she coordinates many of RIBike’s events.
Kathleen has lived in Providence for about five years. Before moving to here, Kathleen lived with her husband and three children in suburban Connecticut where she taught college and served as a town official on the Planning and Zoning and then the Economic Development Commissions. She only started biking once she moved to the east side of Providence and uses her bike for shopping, errands, to attend meetings and arts events as well as recreationally. Kathleen believes Providence has the potential to be a great biking city but needs the proper infrastructure. As a member of the board, Kathleen plans to focus on improving our public profile, expanding our reach to additional constituencies and educating the driving public about the value of biking infrastructure.
C.J. was born and raised in Michigan but has rooted himself in Providence, fully embracing its weirdness. He’s volunteered with NecronomiCon Providence, WaterFire Providence, Smith Hill Community Development Corporation, Downtown Providence Neighborhood Association, PRONK, and more (he likes volunteering). He’s the co-organizer of Tour de Tentacle, a weird bicycle odyssey around Providence, and lives in Fox Point.
