The Wisconsin Bike Fed has some bittersweet news to share.  Jessica Wineberg, our longest Bike Fed employee is moving away from the Bike Fed. However, we will stay connected to her as she remains a true friend to bicycling and will continue to improve our lives in her new role as the Milwaukee County Parks Trails Coordinator.  Although we will miss Jessica’s creative and enthusiastic approach to bicycle advocacy at the Wisconsin Bike Fed, we wish her the best in her next adventure.

It is with open arms that we welcome two new members to our Bike Fed team.

With experience in  both local bike shops and local nonprofits, we think Matthew Gnas will fit right in as our new Communications Manager.  As a long-time resident of Milwaukee’s East Side neighborhood, Matthew loves  the freedom a bike gives him getting around the city, as well as getting out of the town.  A fan of both food and music, you can often find him checking out the latest food spot, frequenting old favorites, or catching a concert.

Matthew is excited to join the Bike Fed and is looking forward to putting his creative efforts towards promoting an organization and cause that’s important to him.

We also enthusiastically  welcome Beth Rice.  Beth is excited to begin working for the Bike Fed this month as the new Membership Services Coordinator.  As a new-comer to Wisconsin with a cycling background from recreational riding to elite competition, she  leaned on the cycling community to meet people and make new friends.  Beth began participating in Bike Fed rides and volunteering for events. And now three  years later, she has begun working to make a direct impact on bicycle education and rights for the state.

In her free time, you might find Beth out riding the trails, handing out podium awards on stage at the races or being the sweeper on a local ride. With so much going on year-round,it’s easy for Beth to stay connected.

Beth is excited about being involved in Wisconsin bicycle advocacy.

Please join us in welcoming Mathew and Beth!
