Please welcome Elliott Bangs, who has joined the Bicycle Alliance staff as our Office and Membership Manager. He is a lifelong resident of Puget Sound and previously served as the Membership and IT Coordinator at CityClub, a Seattle nonprofit which promotes civic engagement.
Elliott is delighted to be part of an organization that promotes the growth of bicycling in Washington. He recently returned from a six-month, 6000-mile solo bicycle tour from Seattle to the Panama Canal.
“I dreamed of taking such a trip since the summer of 2006, when I first toured on the Pacific Coast. That was the summer I truly fell in love with the bicycle,” recalled Elliott. “Having crossed the deserts of Mexico and the seemingly-endless mountain ranges of Guatemala, my daily cross-town commute might still be my proudest cycling accomplishment,” he added.
When not at work, pedaling, eating or sleeping, Elliott is aspiring to be a fiction writer.
