René Rivera's picture

René joined Bike East Bay as our first paid executive director in January 2011. Since then Bike East Bay has grown from an all volunteer operation to a fully staffed advocacy organization, completing our first strategic plan, raising the profile of our work and bringing on many new partners and supporters.

René worked with the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition (SFBC) for fifteen years in a number of roles, as a volunteer, board member and in 2010 as acting executive director.  He has a background in non-profit financial management and administration, and worked for many years at the Exploratorium in San Francisco.

René holds a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Today all his creative energies go into transforming our East Bay cities and streets into lively convivial places where it is a joy to walk and bike.
