Candidate Spotlight: Robert Oppliger
The League’s Board of Directors serves a critical role in guiding the organization to a sustainable and vibrant future. The Board is made up of both board-appointed and member-elected seats — and currently, there are three open seats and four candidates for those member-elected spots. We need YOUR votes to determine who will join the board for the next three years.
You can read more about all of the candidates and how to vote at bikeleague.org/vote. We are also highlighting each of our nine candidates on the blog this week and next. Today’s candidate spotlight is Robert Oppliger.
Robert Oppliger couples enthusiasm for cycling with professional expertise as a sports scientist and a commitment to civic advocacy and bike promotion. He’s an avid bike commuter and tour cyclist, League Life Member, a League Cycling Instructor, and National Bike Summit attendee.

Professionally, Oppliger participates in the leadership of the American College of Sports Medicine and has hosted League staff at ACSM’s national meeting to discuss topics of mutual interest. Oppliger believes his personal and professional experience and dedication would be an asset to the League and he would encourage cooperative efforts with like-minded organizations.
