James Waddell, Executive Director:
James is responsible for all operations of the organization. He joined Boulder B-cycle in November 2012 having previously been with the Denver B-cycle program and the Downtown Denver Partnership. A poster child for combining transit and bike sharing, James takes the RTD bus up & down US-36 each day and uses B-cycle to get to the bus and around during the day. A dual citizen of the USA and Australia, James likes the peace & calm of bike rides with his wife and young son and the hustle & bustle of snowboarding and playing Australian Rules Football.

A Colorado native and year-round bike commuter, Kevin discovered bike sharing on a trip to Europe and began volunteering with Boulder B-cycle in April 2011, as the system prepared to launch. He is a musician, enjoys studying languages, and endeavors to care for the health of the living earth.

As a visual artist in his spare time and with a background in political advertising, he brings a passion for creativity and unconventional thinking to the B-cycle team.
Amy Breunissen, Station Planner
Amy sites our B-stations and helps plan our system growth. She graduated with a degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Colorado at Denver, where her studies focused on relationships between transportation systems, public health and sustainability. Over the last few years she has worked on a variety of projects related to improving the built environment for all travel modes. As a planning intern at the City of Denver’s Department of Public Works- Policy and Planning, Amy worked on the Living Streets Initiative and Denver Safe Routes to School, and researched the variety of factors that influence people to walk and bike. When Amy’s not planning stations for Boulder B-cycle, she works for Boulder Transportation Connections as a Transportation Demand Management Planner and promotes alternative transportation for employees throughout Boulder. Amy is an avid bicycle commuter, and she looks forward to continuing to expand the Boulder B-cycle system!
Boulder B-cycle’s Goals:
— Continue to offer Boulder residents, visitors and workers an additional transportation option that is green, convenient and affordable—and that utilizes and enhances Boulder’s existing transportation infrastructure.
— Encourage more people in Boulder to ride a bike—or bike more often—to promote their personal health as well as our community’s quality of life. — Demonstrate how bike-sharing programs can make communities healthier, stronger, friendlier, more mobile and more vital.
— Demonstrate how bike-sharing programs can help minimize mobility and social equity disadvantages experienced by low-income or other marginalized people.
— Prove that bike-sharing systems are financially sustainable operations that contribute to environmentally sustainable communities.
— Nurture and promote Boulder B-cycle as a unique community initiative so the system organically becomes a beloved Boulder institution—and so people can’t imagine the days before bike sharing.
— Put more smiles on the faces of more people in Boulder—all day, every day!
