Dave Stockman – President – Dave grew up riding bikes every day, for fun, and later to and from school and work. He is an advocate for making cycling more safe and accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds and has been a supporter of RBP’s Major Taylor Program since inception. Dave is the President of the Stillwater Foundation, which focuses on providing support to local organizations that offer youth development programming. He sits on several local boards and is well-versed in nonprofit management.

Jim Webber – Secretary – Jim is an Assistant Professor of English at University of Nevada Reno. Over the last two years, several of his students have done research and writing to support RBP’s outreach and advocacy efforts.

Richard Mason – Treasurer – Richard brings 40 years of professional financial experience, having worked in the film industry for many years until joining the accounting faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno in 2000. He holds PhD and BBA degrees in accounting as well as a law degree. Richard first got involved with the Bike Project when he attended the Bike Repair Class and has since volunteered during Freewheels for Kids and Burning Man. He commutes to work most days on his spiffy electric bike. Besides cycling, he loves playing the ukulele and traveling.

Joe Brandl – Dr. Joseph Brandl is a thoracic and cardiac surgeon in Reno, Nevada and is affiliated with multiple hospitals in the area, including Carson Tahoe Health-Carson City and Renown Regional Medical Center. He received his medical degree from University of Minnesota Medical School and has been in practice for more than 20 years. He is one of 4 doctors at Carson Tahoe Health-Carson City and one of 4 at Renown Regional Medical Center who specialize in Thoracic & Cardiac Surgery.

David Fiore – David is a recreational cyclist and family medicine physician, affiliated with the University of Nevada School of Medicine. He promotes—and tries to live—healthily and advocates that cycling can be an integral part of that lifestyle. RBP was, first, a great place to tinker with his bikes and hang out with a diverse group of people. Intrigued by the way people mingle and work together in the shop, he started asking how to become involved. David hopes his enthusiasm, years of cycling, and commitment to the Truckee Meadows will help RBP meet its vision.

Scott Gibson, P. E. – Scott currently serves as a project manager for the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County, in Reno. He is responsible for the development of the annual pavement preservation program and manages the preventive maintenance program. His fusion of interests in active transportation, livable communities, and pavement management has led to the continual implementation of bicycle facilities and more complete streets in our community.

Precious Hall – Precious Hall is a Professor of Political Science at Truckee Meadows Community College. Over the past 4 years she has worked with at-risk students serving as their faculty mentor, which led her to being introduced to the Reno Bike Project and its benefits to the community. She received her graduate degrees from Georgia State University and uses her knowledge to advocate for social justice.
