Meet the Staff

Kevin Baross, Education Programs Manager

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 wife and 3 dogs, loves old records, new restaurants, and medium aged whiskey.

Jesse Clark, Operations Manager

Jesse has a background in software engineering and aeronautics.  He has also been active in a number of non-profit organizations, local and national, in various leadership roles.  He is an avid commuter and recreational cyclist. He joined the Coalition in January 2017 to support the organization and promote its mission of a more bike-centric lifestyle.

Jesse enjoys the outdoors, flying, stargazing, camping and hiking, traveling the world and especially, bicycle touring.

Chloé Lauer, Executive Director

Chloé has a background in Urban Planning and became a mobility advocate through her non-profit Walk n Roll San Diego. She lived car-free in Cambridge, MA during grad school and selected San Francisco as a place to land on the west coast specifically to continue that lifestyle. For her 14 years there, Chloé walked, biked, and took transit everywhere. Chloé participated in the Wildflower Triathlon in the Bay Area, training on beautiful rides throughout Marin County. 

In San Diego, Chloé lives along the J-Street cycle track and takes leisure rides on her beach cruiser around downtown. A new road or e-bike is likely in her future! Her favorite pastime is traveling to new cities and exploring on foot or by bike.

Kim Loureiro, Program Director

For nine years, Kim has worked in the outdoor education field, for California State Parks, National Park Service, and Positive Adventures. She regularly collaborates with local community leaders to foster relationships and meaningful connections to the natural environment.
