Join our Board of Directors!

The Boston Cyclists Union’s Board works with staff to define the organization’s direction and strategy and ensure its health, working on many issues of street design and mobility justice.

You don't have to call yourself “an avid cyclist” to join our board. In fact, that’s not what we’re looking for.

We’re looking for people who believe in our mission of transforming Greater Boston's streets into equitable, inviting, people-centered spaces that afford access and connection for every body; who are passionate about centering resident voices in community processes; who care about transportation, climate justice, community organizing, fundraising, or non-profit governance; and who want to connect with other people committed to a shared vision of better biking in Boston.

If that sounds like you, we want to hear from you!

Ready to apply?

Tell us more about yourself and your interest in joining the board by answering the questions on the application form linked below.  Deadline to apply: 11:59 PM Thursday, April 14, 2022

We strongly encourage people of color, immigrants, working class people, women, and LGBTQIA+ people to apply, because unsafe roads disproportionately harm communities already impacted by other unjust systems. For the same reason, we encourage residents of East Boston, Chinatown, Hyde Park, Dorchester, Roxbury, and Mattapan to apply.
