The City of Bicycle Love is truly unique. Philly is home to the best cheesesteaks in the world, the Liberty Bell, Rocky, beautiful open parks and museums and now one of the most popular bike share systems in the country. Indego is people-powered, not just by the riders, but by the behind-the-scenes bike magicians who keep everything running. They are mechanics, technicians, marketers, bikers, parents, students, coffee lovers and so much more. Read below to learn more about this dynamic crew!
Kristin oversees all aspects of management and operations for Indego. Before joining Bicycle Transit Systems, she founded and served as the Director of Gearing Up, a local cycling-based nonprofit organization. Kristin's professional experience spans the bicycling industry from working as a tour guide for a bicycle tour company to serving as a Research Fellow for the Safe Routes to School National Partnership. The driving force behind Kristin's leadership at Indego is to ensure that bicycles are accessible to all Philadelphians, because when people ride bikes the world becomes a smaller place and community is built. When not riding her bicycle, Kristin can be found in a yoga studio or somewhere in Mt. Airy with her husband and two dogs. Kristin holds a B.A. in Sociology and Spanish from the University of Richmond, and a B.S. in Kinesiology from Temple University.
