JENICA BROOKE

I caught the ‘cycling bug’ when I began riding to work in 2013. Since then, I have developed an in-depth understanding of the issues facing cyclists. Through my Facebook page “Melbourne Commuter” I’ve successfully advocated for change, focusing on road safety culture, infrastructure and legislation.

James Garriock

You might have met me commuting, wave leading Peaks Challenge, racing, or volunteering on GVBR/ATB. However I’m also a qualified company director and Leadership Victoria graduate. My advocacy has been on Darebin-Yarra link and Chandler Highway. Please vote for Prita and me to prioritise minimum passing distance legislation in Victoria.

KERRY GILL

I’m a keen social rider and want to help BN continue it’s work around advocacy, campaigns and events to improve the bike riding experience so that more people can be encouraged to start or continue to enjoy the many health and environmental benefits of riding and in a safe environment.

FAITH HUNTER

You’ll find me and my family on our bicycles, for transport and for fun. I’m passionate about infrastructure, safe roads and strong cycling communities. I host the Yarra Bug Radio Show, ran programs for the Squeaky Wheel getting women and diverse communities into bicycles and was editor of Treadlie magazine.

PRITA JOBLIng-BAKER

A commuter, mountain biker, mother (to cyclists!) and lawyer, I’ve pedalled with BN members for 10 years as a Bicycle Angel, Peaks Challenge wave leader, and women’s ambassador. Vote for James and me to advance your interests, get More People Cycling More Often – safely, and prioritise minimum passing laws.

TOM PERE

As a keen cyclist for 40+ years, I’ve come to appreciate the important societal, environmental and physical/mental health benefits of this great activity. Bicycling Network is a vital organisation and through my corporate experience, HR expertise and cycling passion, I believe I can be a strong contributor to the Board.

Goals: 

  • refocus on getting better places to ride built so everyone can ride everyday
  • reconnect with the wider bicycle riding community – families, children and bicycle commuters
  • reignite the Ride2School and Ride2Work programs to help beginner riders
  • renew relations with other state bicycling organisations for effective national advocacy.
  • PETER THURLING

    I am an engineer and project manager with a keen interest in bicycles. I commute by bike each day and ride mountain-bikes and on-road for recreation. I passionately encourage others to see the possibilities that bicycling provides and to see the bicycle as a significant part of the transport solution.
