Meet the Board

Our Board is composed of a talented group of people who are passionate about bicycling, making positive change in the world, and living in Baton Rouge. Our board is composed of 100% volunteers!

Mika is a Certified Bicycle Safety Instructor and has a passion for getting people on bicycles. You might see him around town with a group of bicyclists following him saying things like "I didn't know you could ride a bike here!" Learn more about Mika here.
