The Iowa Bicycle Coalition is delighted to announce their most recent hire, Matt Burkey as the Safe Routes to School Manager.
If you live or travel through Johnson County you have probably been introduced to Matt while he cycles about town. He has been an avid bike commuter for over a decade while also enjoying recreational road cycling & scouting gravel roads. Matt is an exuberant proponent of active transportation for personal & climate health; we at the Iowa Bike Coalition look forward to him bringing his enthusiasm to share with the entire state of Iowa.
Safe Routes to School is a program that encourages youth to walk or ride bicycles to school & is a program that can be implemented in any Iowa community that wants safe walking & bicycling for every Iowan.
One of Matt’s first tasks will be to assemble an advisory committee to scale up the Safe Routes to School program to reach more students across the state. If interested in representing your community please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or at 515.309.2867
