“We have been very proud of what OBC has accomplished over the last six years, and we want to take advantage of the increased number of cyclists out on our streets. We are looking to expand our board, perhaps even with new leadership, and increase our impact in Orlando. More events, meetings with community stakeholders, and creating a safer Orlando for all on two wheels is the goal.”AARON POWELL, ORLANDO BIKE COALITION FOUNDER
The Orlando Bike Coalition (Facebook ) is a local group of advocates that lobbies for cyclists of all disciplines, abilities, and backgrounds. They often work with local governmental bodies and advisory boards to ensure higher level of standards for public bike infrastructure and have influenced projects through the Valencia College West Campus, the Orlando Bicycle Beltway, and the installation of grassroots-funded Fixit bike repair stations around town.
They are currently looking to add members to the OBC Board of Directors. Ideal candidates must have a passion for advocacy and working towards a safe cycling environment throughout Orlando. Responsibilities include monthly meetings and sub-committee working groups that identify and execute advocacy projects.
