Candidate Spotlight: Suzanne Deveney
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 five open seats and nine 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 Suzanne Deveney.
Suzanne Deveney, a lifelong resident of Chicago, rides and photographs the city she loves. Her unique perspective often brings focus to street art and the beauty of an urban landscape as only can be viewed from a bike. She embraces all types of cycling, and rides a road bike, a commuter, a vintage Peugeot, and this year embarked on a new venture, learning to mountain bike. She writes a popular cycling and photography blog, Protecting My Front Wheel, and is a freelance contributing writer to LovingtheBike.com. She was the organizer of the 2013 Chicago ride for Cyclefemme, a grassroots movement that celebrates women on bikes. Her cycling adventures have taken her abroad, riding from London to Paris and culminating with a final ride along the famed Champs-Élysées. A trained designer, Suzanne is an accomplished executive with expertise in creative direction, marketing, communications, brand strategy, and copywriting.
