Kathleen moved to Boulder in 2016 from Bath, Ohio. She began her involvement with Community Cycles by donating bicycles. She moved on to volunteering with our new building, painting and hanging pegboard.
The move to Boulder is bringing Kathleen a lot more bicycling! She rode in Ohio, but is now enjoying much longer rides with the Boulder Newcomers and other new friends. She also enjoys skiing, hiking and Orange Theory Fitness.
Kathleen is newly retired from her previous life as a General Counsel and Assistant General Counsel at public companies and worked as an audit manager at KPMG. She’s excited to bring this experience to her role as Community Cycles’ Treasurer.
With 3 grown children who reside in Boulder, Denver and London, Kathleen’s favorite thing is to spend time with her family.

Dean Fogerty, Board Member
Bicycling is a long-time passion for Dean, who’s lived and cycled in Boulder for over 40 years. He has ridden and volunteered for Ride the Rockies and RAGBRAI several times, and is proud to have worked on the very first Red Zinger bike race. “Being able to help others build and ride is a very rewarding perk of being involved with Community Cycles.” His employment at Ricoh includes marketing and events management responsibilities that give him the opportunity to travel and observe bicycling around the world. Dean is also chairman of the board for Frequent Flyers (an aerial dance performance group), on the board of the Colorado Blues Society, and a long time volunteer for eTown (a Boulder-based, nationally syndicated radio program).
Clark Rider, Board Member
With that last name , it’s no wonder Clark ended up in the cycling community. A Boulder native, Clark returned home in 2014 after almost twenty years in the Pacific Northwest, including a stint managing the sustainability program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in Seattle. Currently the Sustainable Transportation Coordinator for CU Boulder, he supports the University’s transportation demand management efforts.
As a daily bike commuter, bike racer, occasional driver, father of two, and longtime Boulder residents, Clark sees the importance of a strong organization like Community Cycles advocating for safer streets and a stronger bicycle and sustainable transportation community. He’s glad to be able to put his skills to use for that mission.

Steve Cepek, Board Member
I love Bikes! Mountain Biking is what brought me to Colorado 20 some years ago from the sunny shores of Cleveland. I’ve been in Bicycle retail for 2 decades and have passion for all things cycling. I’m lucky enough to have ridden everything from track bikes to downhill bikes and most styles in between. I love helping riders get to their next level, next ride or next adventure. I’m also pretty good at getting rid of aches and pains associated with riding.
