The Community Cycling Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to broadening access to bicycling and its benefits, has chosen Mychal Tetteh as its new CEO.

"We are excited to welcome Mychal back to the Community Cycling Center and we are confident he will hit the ground running," said Kathryn Sofich, Board Chair for the Center.

"He already has established relationships with our partners and a deep understanding of the issues they face as it relates to bicycling, equity, health, and more, ensuring that our work remains relevant to these communities in the future."

Tetteh has worked for the Community Cycling Center since 2005, gaining promotion to  Director of Shop Operations. He helped lead capacity assessment, strategic planning, and vision development efforts, while increasing productivity and expanding sales at the bike shop.

"I want the Community Cycling Center to be on the leading edge of the cultural evolution of bicycling in the United States," Tetteh said.

"We're different! Our model is uniquely positioned to grow ridership by empowering people who ride bikes, while understanding and addressing the culturally specific barriers that face people from all walks of life. I'm excited to collaborate with advocacy and industry partners to create innovative transportation solutions that ensure the City of Portland is the best place to ride a bike, catch a bus, or take a walk."
