Cycling Embassy AGM: Meet the new chair

We regret to announce that the Cycling Embassy founder Jim Davis will be stepping down from the Chair for personal reasons, although he will continue to play an active role. Jim founded the Cycling Embassy in January 2011 and has been an eloquent force for change in the way cycle campaigns have operated. He will be replaced by Mark Treasure, Embassy Board member and the force behind the blog As Easy as Riding a Bike. Mark has been a stalwart of the Embassy team since he joined the board last year and was unanimously elected to the role at the Third AGM.

Joe Dunckley caught up with Mark in Hyde Park yesterday to ask him about his new role.

Mark will be joined by three new board members, Kevin Hickman, Joe Costello and Katja Leyendecker, while Sam Smith announced that she will also be stepping down.
