Jake Beattie / Bikeworks, Executive Director

building communities with bikes

As Jake Says: Bike Works hits a sweet spot of doing good work for the community as a whole by focusing on individuals. The change we are hoping to affect on the world isn’t abstract, we want to get you on a bike and help you get the skills that you’ll need to use and maintain it. That last sentence is true if you’re an adult too.

On a societal level, bicycles are an incredible opportunity. In terms of making sustainable change at an individual level, I can’t think of another planet saving activity that simultaneously saves you money, makes you healthier, has tiny infrastructure costs compared to other transportation options, and is fun to do.

All of this is a long way of saying that I’m excited to be a part of the incredibly talented team of people around here who are working to make the world a better place in ways that are simultaneously humble and profound
