Sarah Clark Stuart

Executive Director

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.

Sarah has held positions with the Pew Charitable Trusts and Environmental Defense Fund, and consulted for the Conservation Law Foundation and the Natural Resources Defense Council. She holds a Master’s of Forest Science from the Yale University’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and a bachelor’s degree from Pomona College. Sarah resides in Center City Philadelphia with her two daughters.
