    I haven't a clue, but don't know why they wouldn't. Ask them.

    Why?

    The current Exec, Martha Rostowski, has accepted a big-time position:
    She has served as our
    Executive Director for 7 years, working with energy and conviction to lead
    a successful organization.

    Martha's leadership qualities have not gone unnoticed. This week, she was
    officially hired to manage the national campaign to improve the bicycling
    components of TEA-21, the federal transportation funding bill, due for
    reauthorization in 2003. So, "Martha goes to Washington" in May to lead the
    BikeTEA campaign. The campaign is a collaborative effort of IMBA, the
    League, Rails to Trails Conservancy, the Thunderhead Alliance, National
    Center for Bicycling and Walking, the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle
    Professionals, Adventure Cycling and Bikes Belong.

    and SHE is a cyclist.

    However, in a state as large as Colorado - I believe it is 7th largest in USA (I guess about 350 by 250 miles - I will check that later), and with lousy winter weather, and with a need for a state-wide presence, I would guess that an auto would indeed be needed.

    Don't be so cynical. There are lot's of qualified cyclists, and this is a totally cyclist controlled group. I.e., I have all the qualifications, personally, including lot's of fund-raising, non-profit management, contact with legislators, etc., etc. There are many like me.

    The City of San Diego's bicycle coordinator has been very responsive and effective, even though he personally is afraid to ride his bike in traffic. He also has credibility as a licensed Traffic Engineer and is supported and prodded by a very active and outspoken private not-for-profit cycling advocacy group, the SDCBC.

    I've cycled some of the existing trails in Dalbeattie forest v. nice. And as to getting muddy, you should see the state of my road bike after 2 weeks of commuting to work.

    But, I don't think my wife would be keen on me dropping quite so much of my salary.

    John,

    You have hit on the main thing (the main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.)

    "...he is personally afraid to ride his bike in traffic."

    This can be good, or bad...either his fear translates into action, inaction, or...

    ...urban bike paths...



    (Note: urban bike paths, such as exist in Atlanta, are not to be confused with the type that exist in some areas, such as where Denver lives. Many of our Atlantan bike paths are formulas for cyclist extinction, no exaggeration.)
