SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (January 7, 2022) — Bike Utah, a statewide bicycle advocacy organization, is pleased to announce Jenn Oxborrow as their new executive director. Oxborrow brings more than 20 years of experience serving Utah communities, and advocating for equitable and accessible health and wellness for all. Oxborrow’s appointment follows Crys Lee’s departure from Bike Utah in the summer of 2021 when she moved out of state.
“We are truly excited to have Jenn join us. We hope to leverage her experience and enthusiasm to continue to grow Bike Utah and our programs into the future,” said Bike Utah Board Chair Steph Tomlin.
Known by many for her work specific to victims and survivors, Oxborrow is ‘shifting gears’ to focus her expertise on making Utah a better place to ride, advocating for livable, healthy communities, and reducing barriers to ride, such as age, ability, race, or income.
“Biking became an essential part of my life to rebuild strength, stay connected to Utah’s trails and communities, and to spend time with my family exploring this beautiful state,” states Oxborrow. “Bikes have brought empowerment, connection, health, and wellness to my life in countless ways. I intend to do all I can to ensure everyone in Utah can ride.”
Oxborrow joins Bike Utah at a time of extraordinarily high use of paths and trails across the state, for both recreation and commuter purposes, by people of varying riding experience levels and abilities. She looks forward to addressing these trends and other priorities, as well as connecting and collaborating with others to fulfill Bike Utah’s mission and vision.
