Robert PrinzAfter several years of volunteering with Bike East Bay, Robert had the opportunity to receive his League of American Bicyclists teaching certification and began instructing bike education classes all over the East Bay. Eventually he was able to turn this into a full time gig, coordinating and promoting each of the classes Bike East Bay offers for free to thousands of adults, youth, and families all over Alameda and Contra Costa Counties each year.

Hansa Jacob-Martin: Administrative Manager

Hansa moved to the Bay Area in 2014 from Washington, D.C. where she first took up bicycling while living in Capitol Hill to explore the District. She believes she is exceptionally fortunate to be a part of the Bike East Bay family. Growing up in India she had seen large numbers of people for whom cycling was a sole means of transportation and how bicyclists kept the streets safer, calmer. She finds it exciting to learn that way of life is a reality for many and a possibility for many more in the East Bay area.

Eager to support bike advocacy and education she brings her experience in Accounting and Human Resources from Texas and the East Coast to work part time at Bike East Bay. Hansa has an accounting degree from University of Texas – Arlington and a Masters in Organization Development from the School of Public Affairs, American University, Washington, D.C.

Susie began biking as a kid to gain some independence in small-town Connecticut. Since then, she has lived and bicycled in Maine, Germany, Chicago and finally, here in the Bay Area. Susie has led bike tours for youth and most recently coordinated a bike education program in San Mateo County before joining the team at Bike East Bay.

Victor Evans : Valet Bike Parking Coordinator

I was born and raised in the East Bay. I have been a DJ and electronic musician for 15 years, playing all along the west coast and various states. I helped run an art collective in downtown Oakland called the MOCO gallery, which for several years hosted local artists and bands. I got into cycling through the need for transportation about 10 years ago, and suddenly I was immersed into a lifestyle that changed my life.
