Wheels: Awesome Pink Waterford (with new fenders for Seattle)
Commute: Just 2 1/2 miles, with extra detours to try and master these Seattle hills!
Kiker always rode her bike for pleasure; the turning point for her came when a colleague convinced her she could ride from Washington, D.C. to the suburbs of Fairfax, Va. for her commute. He met her on the trail, showed her the way, and an advocate was born. After starting a club at that job, she applied for and got the job as communications director at the League of American Bicyclists. She left the League after almost 8 years, having moved up to Executive Vice President. While at the League she completed one cross-country trip and several state-wide rides.
She's most excited about leading a club as well-regarded and successful as Cascade, and plans to continue to build on its work in advocacy, education and excellent rides. She is really looking forward to connecting with our many dedicated members and volunteers, and learning the joys of Seattle by bike.
