Board + Staff

Andy Hanshaw, SDCBC Andy Hanshaw, Executive Director

Andy Hanshaw, MPA, has been Executive Director at the Bike Coalition since July of 2011. He is also the founder and organizer of the annual Bike the Bay community bike ride that takes place each August in San Diego. A career nonprofit and development professional, he has lead efforts to help small businesses working with Business Improvement Districts in San Diego and Portland, Oregon and he also led fundraising efforts for the recently built San Diego State University Alumni Center. He rides just about anywhere, anytime and he enjoys going on long rides all throughout San Diego County as well as his daily bike commute from Point Loma where he and his wife Sandy live and own The Wine Pub, a cozy, bike-friendly wine bar and restaurant.

Erin Stephens, Membership and Marketing Coordinator

Erin joined the Bike Coalition in June 2015 as the Membership and Marketing Coordinator.

She moved to San Diego two months prior in April. Previously, she served as an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer for two years with Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii as Project Coordinator. She worked an additional year with the affiliate as Community Relations Coordinator, partnering with organizations to build homes. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Administration from Boston University and also holds her certification as a Health & Wellness Coach from Georgetown University.

She loves being a part of active communities and sharing her passion of bicycles. She is also an avid triathlete and competes in Olympic-distance races with a long-term goal of racing for Team USA.

Kevin Baross, Program Coordinator

Kevin was born with a bike helmet on his head and hasn’t taken it off since. As a native San Diegan and LCI since 2005, Kevin knows the bicycling community like he knows his own family. He rode across the United States in 2007 (left to right) with his father and brother, and loves commuting by bike whenever possible. He lives in Normal Heights with his amazing fiancée and dog, loves old records, new restaurants, and medium aged whiskey.

Michelle Luellen, Education Program Manager

Michelle Luellen brings community outreach, community organizing, grant writing, and project management experience to her position as Education Program Manager. She taught high school in Chicago and went through her League of American Bicyclists Certification training while she was 5 months pregnant. Her favorite part of the day is commuting to work on her bicycle and loves to hang out with her husband and 4-year old son.

Corey Hart, Bike Valet Coordinator

Arriving in San Diego in 2010, Corey instantly fell in love with the ability to commute via bike year-round. Originally from Michigan, wintry rides were not his favorite. In Michigan, Corey sat on numerous committees and coordinated annual events and galas to raise funds for The Helen DeVos Childrens’ Hospital. Since childhood he’s always had his hands in some nonprofit or fundraiser, and is happy to have found a small role at the Bike Coalition.

When he’s not setting up and staffing bike valet services at festivals and events throughout San Diego County, Corey is a partner in a small restaurant company and works as a professional freelance photographer. He is a big fan of any kind of cycling, and has an intensely close relationship with his Surly Long Haul Trucker.
