Bike SLO County functions with great staff and an active 11 member board. We are always looking for a few good people to join the board and be a part of our rapidly growing organization. Being a board member is a great chance to be directly involved in creating positive change for bicycles in SLO County!
Chris moved to San Luis Obispo 30 years ago and fell in love with the Central Coast and cycling. On weekends she can be found riding area roads or trails with her husband, Sterling.
Chris’ background is in non-profits organizations and fundraising. She is excited about being a part of the board and helping to shape support of bicycling in the community.
Tyler has been a member since November 2007. His professional background in Information Technology and philanthropic commitment to the community have made him a valued leader. Tyler brings focus, structure, and a clear vision to the Coalition. Outside of the Coalition he shares his love for bikes by taking on leadership roles among the local cycling community. He is a competitive cyclist and one of the founding members of SLO Nexus-Gym One Cycling Team.
Gary is a native of the Bay Area who went to school at Cal Poly in the ’80s. Fortunate enough to return to San Luis Obispo in 2008, he immediately sought volunteer work to get closer to the community. He joined the San Luis Obispo Bicycle Club, and got involved with Bike SLO County (then San Luis Obispo Bicycle Coalition) as a regular volunteer at the Thursday Farmers’ Market Bike Valet and other Valet attended events.
After directing the SLOBC Wildflower Century for five years ending in 2016, and serving on the board of the bike club for two years, Gary seeks to apply the skills he developed in those positions to the success of Bike SLO County and all the cycling and community development it stands for.
Lea is a self-described bike nut who grew up in San Luis Obispo. She is a true believer in bicycling as transportation. She was in high school in 1972 when she was inspired by Earth Day to start bicycling to school a couple of days a week. While studying journalism at Cal Poly, she bicycled to school and work and began riding recreationally.
The Lighthouse Century was her first 100-mile ride and inspired her to bicycle across America in 1976. She met her husband, Skip Amerine, in the San Luis Obispo Bicycle Club and they have been bicycling together ever since. They moved to Northern California in 1980 to pursue their careers and were active in bicycle advocacy in Redding and Sacramento. When Lea and Skip returned “home” to San Luis Obispo in 2013, they were eager to get involved in bicycle advocacy. Lea previously served as staff Advocate for Bike SLO County, is chair of Bike SLO County’s Advocacy Team, and is also a member of the SLO City Bicycle Advisory Committee.
Originally from the Bay Area, Colin is a student at Cal Poly in the City and Regional Planning Department. He looks to bring insight from the students and youths of SLO County into Bike SLO County as well as increase these communities’ involvement.

Colin races for the Cal Poly Cycling Team and Bay Area team SquadraSF p/b Terun.
