Welcome to our New Directors!

Spring has just begun and we’re happy to announce two new Directors at the Bicycle Coalition.

Troy Johnston is coming aboard as our new Programs Director, and Steve Akers is moving up from his position on the Bike Valet staff to become our new Communications Director.

Steve and Troy

Troy is a former principal and lifelong educator with a love of bikes who recently moved to San Luis Obispo from the Bay area. Troy is our first full-time Programs Director and we’re excited to have his experience and expertise as we work to expand the reach of our programs.

Steve began volunteering at the Bike Valet a few years ago and officially joined the Bicycle Coalition staff in 2013. His experience with media production and outreach will be a valuable asset as the Bicycle Coalition strives to spread the word about all things bike.

We’re excited about the energy these new additions bring to the Bicycle Coalition Staff. Please ring your bike bell when you see them riding around town!
