Fiona E. Walsh


BC Cycling Coalition

Fiona supports BCCC because she believes that the best changes for cyclists will happen at the provincial level.  As she puts it, cycling is her life and promotes a long and healthy life. Fiona joined HUB in 2010 and is on the HUB - North Shore Committee. In 2012, she joined the boards of HUB and BCCC and, in 2013, she joined the board of Vélo Canada Bikes.

Fiona bought an electric-assist bike in 2009 after 40 years of only driving a car for transportation.  She was a teacher in Burnaby, at the time, and biked to work across the Iron Workers’ Memorial Bridge from North Vancouver.  Over her teaching career, she has taught students, from 5 to 75 years old, in English and French, volunteering in Uganda, Ghana, China and Peru in the summertime.  In 2013, when she retired, she transitioned to a 'regular bike'.  She chairs her neighbourhood residents' association and volunteers at North Shore Emergency Management, the West End Coal Harbour Community Policing Centre and Vancouver Coastal Health.

A retired teacher with a new occupation of cycling advocate, Fiona came to purposeful cycling, at the age of 60. She hopes to encourage baby boomer to cycle, and to represent that important demographic at all levels of government.
