The Bicycle Coalition recently announced that they have combined forces with the Cadence Cycling Foundation (CCF). According to their website, the Cadence Cycling Foundation, founded in 2007, "is a nonprofit youth development organization that uses the sport of cycling as a means to connect with underserved youth to help them grow into healthy, happy and responsible adults." CCF co-founder and Executive Director Ryan Oelkers will be transitioning to a new advisory role, and will continue to work as a coach. Meanwhile, the Bicycle Coalition will be welcoming back one of their alumni, Cy Maramangalam, who will serve as the new program manager of Cadence Cycling Foundation.
