The City of Victoria is the latest addition to a growing network of cities around the globe to introduce a Bicycle Mayor. Susan Stokhof is the new Bicycle Mayor of Victoria, and the first in Canada, joining the global movement whose goal is to inspire the next billion people to bicycle.
What is a Bicycle Mayor?
Bicycle Mayors are dedicated and passionate leaders who represent the human face and voice of cycling locally while acting as a catalyst to accelerate the development of cycling worldwide. Bicycle Mayors share a common goal of having 50% of all city trips by bicycle by 2030 (BYCS calls it 50x30). They believe that the greatest goals require the boldest ideas, and they never wait for permission to change the world.
