Board of Directors

Bike BloNo would not be what it is without the dedicated work, day-in and day-out, from our seven-member board. Our board members serve two-year terms and were elected during our January membership meetings in 2015 and 2017.

Mike McCurdy

Vice President

Mike is a 22-year resident of Bloomington-Normal, moving to the community to work at WGLT public radio. His passion for sustainable transportation is apparent with his service on the Connect Transit Board of Trustees and as co-director of the Good To Go Commuter Challenge. As a personal challenge, Mike gave up his ISU parking permit in February of 2009 and hasn’t driven to work since. Mike is a year-round bike commuter, riding more than 2,000 miles annually and more than 310 days a year, missing only 4 work days in 2013.


Julian Westerhout

Julian Westerhout

Board Member At-Large

Julian Westerhout is a lifelong bicyclist who has lived in Bloomington since 2007. He and his wife chose their house in part due to its proximity to the Constitution Trail and a BNPTS (now Connect Transit) bus route. He is a year-round bicycle commuter and utility cyclist, regularly volunteers at the West Bloomington Revitalization Project Bicycle Co-op, is a member of the McLean County Wheelers, and enjoys long distance self-supported bicycle touring in the U.S. and overseas with his wife on their tandem.

Kelly Rumley

Board Member At-Large

Kelly began bicycle commuting in 2009 thanks to the extensive bicycle infrastructure that Urbana offered. She was actively involved in the community as the Fundraising Chair and Business Incentive Co-Chair for the Yankee Ridge PTA. She was a member of the Urbana Park District Advisory Committee (UPD-AC) and the UPDAC Teen Involvement Subcommittee. She was also a member of the UPD Trails Masterplan Steering Committee, whose goal was to create a trail system connecting the University of Illinois campus with the various parks in the community – similar to the Constitution Trail. Kelly hopes to improve her community and the bicycle infrastructure of Bloomington-Normal for everyone.
