The Bicycle Mayor of Keene accelerates the progress of cycling in the Monadnock region by focusing on three areas: education, creation and connection — with an aim to get more people on more bikes more often.
I’m so proud to serve as the inaugural Bicycle Mayor of Keene (and the very first Bicycle Mayor in the United States). With our community partners, we have identified three areas that I will focus on during my two year term: education, connection and creation.
As the Monadnock region’s only certified cycling instructor, I will set up cycling education classes that teach our community to drive and ride strong. I will also work to get other certified cycling instructors in the region.
I am committed to connecting the existing resources in our region – organizations, businesses and municipalities — that support a shared future of confident riders and supported infrastructure. Also, I will connect local colleges, university and businesses with the benefits of bicycle-friendly programming. I will connect our region of riders by launching initiatives such as Bike Kitchens, Bike Shares, and Community Rides.
I will create an online hub that connects our community of riders with opportunities to know your neighbor and share many voices from the saddles in our region.

Blinkers for Bicycles - WingLights
As Bicycle Mayor and a regular bicycle commuter, I am always searching for innovative, effective ideas that strengthen my ride. WingLights are one of those ideas. They attach to the ends of your handlebar and use technology that drivers already understand: Blinkers! Lasting longer than an arm raise, and brighter than your skin tone, these bright lights provide a world of visibility. You know where you are going. Let the folks behind you know the same. Ride strong with WingLights, the Dragons’ Den-winning product (UK version of Shark Tank) that featured on Forbes’ Top Cycling Products for 2017.
Beeline Device - Built for Better Journeys
Smart navigation for your bike. This package includes Beeline, an intuitive navigation device that makes your bike rides more fun. Ride with Beeline and make every journey an everyday adventure. By simply showing you the direction to your destination and the distance to go, Beeline allows you to take back control of your ride. Happy Beelining! :)
We'll feature you (or your business) in the Q&A section of one of our monthly e-newsletters and share with the community your interest in bicycling. We will also directly link the email to a bicycling website of your choice. Show off your dedication to the movement!
