Board of Directors



Scott lives and breathes bicycles. He’s spent the last 10 years as a coordinator at Recycle Cylces Community Bike Shop. When he’s not teaching people about bikes he’s riding them as a year round bicycle commuter and cycle tourist. He’s done solo bike trips around 4/5 of the Great Lakes and believes the only reason to stop riding a bicycle is to get on a unicycle.

Scott is pasionate about sharing his love of cycling and making bikes accessible to as many people as possible so that we can build vibrant communities.

Michelle's love for cycling and passion for helping children led her to Cycling into the Future. As a new mom she looks forward to family bikes rides in the summer and teaching her son to ride a bike one day!

Dan is the newest member of our board. His photo and bio will be coming shortly.



Kyle is an enthusiastic cyclist whose tires have rolled over trails and roads in British Columbia, Great Britain, and Waterloo Region. He looks after the books, is involved in program delivery, and coordinated the Kitchener schools in 2016. For Kyle, cycling fires the imagination and opens up new ways of seeing the world and he brings this sense of wonder to his safety lessons when taking students out for a ride.

There is no place Philip Martin would rather be than outdoors.  He loves cycling, kayaking, birdwatching and just hanging out along the Grand River.  

Now retired, Philip spent 31 years as a teacher with the Waterloo Region District School Board encouraging elementary school students to be engaged citizens who want to explore, ask questions and speak out about what they are learning.

A bicycle opens up thousands of opportunities for excitement and discovery when the roads are shared wisely, Philip says. Ten-year-old children who learn to ride well, grow in confidence, independence and their connection with the natural world.

Luke became involved with Cycling into the Future in 2017 because he has a passion for making active transportation fun and accessible to all. Luke was born and raised in Kitchener, right behind the iron horse trail. He has great memories of exploring the city on his bike, and is excited to be part of an organization that is trying to make active transportation a reality for young people in our community. When he’s not volunteering with CITF, Luke works at the YMCA as the Director of Youth Outcomes, and volunteers as the basketball coach of the Courtland Senior Public School’s Grade 7&8 team. With CITF, Luke supports program evaluation, fundraising and serves as the acting treasurer. He is very excited for what CITF has in store for the future, and hopes we can be part of making our community one where more people bike to their places of work, play and school!
