Consider Biking Hires Jeff Stephens as First Executive Director

Columbus's grassroots pro-cycling organization Consider Biking has hired Jeff Stephens of Worthington as its first Executive Director. Jeff's a long-time advocate for cycling of all types in the Central Ohio area. I had the privilege to meet Jeff at the Simply Living meeting with the cycling infrastructure coordinators from MORPC, and he's dedicated to making things better for cyclists of all walks.

I'll let the CB press release say more, but let me finish by saying that I'm looking forward to seeing how things progress now with a firm leader at the helm of CB. The CB/COBAC partnership is getting stronger and stronger!

People, not speed.

  1. Will he (or anyone else from Columbus) make it to the National Bike Summit?

  2. I haven't heard yet if anyone from Consider Biking/COBAC is going. I'd love to be there but... well, I'm not going to be. Simple as that.

  3. Being off yesterday apparently kept me a little too out of the loop. Jeff is indeed going, along with former COBAC president and current member Jon Gideon. Both are big names in the Columbus advocacy world.
