Jun Watanabe, Board Vice President
Jun most recently relocated from Hawaii to live his best life here in Boulder, CO. He enjoys staying active by way of cycling, running, surfing, climbing, skydiving, swimming, etc. At only 11 years old, Jun and a friend with only a map-in-hand made an impromptu bike trip over a mountain range to the beach and back totaling over 100 miles. His passion for biking only grew from there.
Jun brings over 20+ years in sales and business development, previous board experiences in non-profit organizations, and consulting expertise to take Community Cycles into the next evolution. Jun holds a BSBA in Finance from Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business.

Clark Rider, Board Secretary
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.
