In conjunction with a new world that we are now living in, some of our staff at the Bicycle Coalition are assuming new roles and responsibilities that we want to let our community know about.

StephanieFirst, Stephanie Fenniri has been promoted to Deputy Director. She still oversees our Bicycle Coalition Youth Cycling and Better Bike Share Partnership programs and will assume more responsibility for overseeing communications and marketing. Stephanie has been with the Coalition for eighteen months and specializes in social impact analysis. “I look forward to pushing the envelope and supporting the team in creating an increasing amount of innovative, inclusive and equitable programming that reflects the region’s rich diversity of bicyclists and pedestrians.”

RandyRandy LoBasso was also promoted to the Coalition’s Policy Director and will manage the Coalition’s city and regional policy-related work. He joined the Coalition in late 2014.

“I’ve spent the last five years learning, as best I can, the ins and outs of bringing better, safer streets to everyone in the city. We’ve got a long way to go, but I’m humbled by the opportunity to be the point person for the city and region’s policy efforts.”

Amanda Ruffner will be assuming the Coalition’s Communications and Marketing work and will take the lead on managing our virtual events and many of our communications. Amanda has been at the Coalition for two and half years.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to get creative with our virtual programming. I’m also looking forward to working on more content that reflects the major issues that our community cares deeply about, like climate, economic, and mobility justice.”

Megan Hummell is now our Systems Administrator!  She holds on tight to the inner workings of our database and will support our team on communications and membership. Megan has been with the Coalition since October 2018.

“Who doesn’t love clean data?! But seriously, we want to make sure we’re connecting our members to the events and advocacy work that they interests them. I’m super excited to help out with this piece of the puzzle.”

Sarah’s foray into trail and bicycle advocacy began in 2004 when she became involved in the “Free Schuylkill River Park” campaign to preserve public access to the Schuylkill River Trail in Center City, now known as Schuylkill Banks. Since joining the Bicycle Coalition in 2006, she has been a key player in the Bicycle Coalition’s key accomplishments: the $23 million TIGER trail-building grant; naming and building out the Circuit; lobbying successfully for legislation mandating the inclusion of bike parking in new construction projects; Philadelphia’s Complete Streets policy; and coordinating research and analysis of several reports on bicycling in Philadelphia.
