Randy Wells has served on the board of Bike Florida since 2015. Randy’s first foray into cycling advocacy began in Washington, DC in 1999 where he helped his wife launch a youth recycle-a-bicycle program. The program grew into a non-profit bicycle shop that trained and employed local youth. After moving to Gainesville, FL, Randy continued his work on bicycle advocacy as a member of the Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Board (2006-2010) and as a two-term Gainesville City Commissioner (2010-2016). While serving as commissioner, Randy initiated the creation of bicycle boulevards and a city commitment to add 100 miles of new off-road bicycle and pedestrian connections. As a member of the State of Florida Bicycle and Pedestrian Council, he helped drive an improved statewide Complete Streets policy. He enjoys exploring new places with his family on foot and two wheels.
