Call for Nominations – Mayor's Bicycle Advisory Committee

From District 9 Council women -- Judy Montero

Denver has always been a great city for bicycling, and converging local and global trends have renewed the enthusiasm and commitment to a cycling culture. In 2010 Denver moved up the ranks to become a Silver Bicycle Friendly Community, but there is still more work needed to reach the goal of 10 percent bicycle commuting by 2018.

If you are interested or involved in bicycling, this is an opportunity for you! As advisor to the Mayor and City agencies, and conduit to our community, the MBAC plays a leading role in making Denver a more bicycle friendly city. Denver is looking for committed individuals who will represent our diverse City and bicycle community.

When applying, please address the following in your letter of interest:

How often do you ride a bike (daily, weekly, monthly) and for what purpose (recreation, transportation, etc.)?

Are you a member of any bicycle organizations? Which ones?

What bicycle-related activities do you /have you participated in?

Do you use public transportation? Combine it with bike riding?

Are you familiar with the Bicycle Friendly Communities program?

Will you be able to make the time commitment to attend the monthly MBAC meeting and at least one sub-committee meeting per month?

What do you hope to accomplish as a member of the Mayor’s Bicycle Advisory Committee?

Please reply with your letter of interest, application (see attached), and resume to Suzan Moore at suzan.moore@denvergov.org by January 21, 2010.
