Two Indego Community Ambassadors Reflect on the 2019 Season!

The Indego Community Ambassadors gathered to celebrate the end of the season at the Discovery Center

Indego Community Ambassadors help keep Indego and the communities it serves connected. Working closely with the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, these Ambassadors were busy this season organizing bicycle safety classes, group rides, and other events that focus on introducing biking to their communities!

2019 brought together some seasoned ambassadors like Strawberry Mansion CD and Mantua Civic Association’s DeWayne Drummond, as well as newcomers to the Indego team such as Mount Vernon Manor CDC, Mom Your Business, Girl Trek, Real Life CDC, and SEAMAAC. The mixture of experience and expertise produced a season that was filled with lots of smiles, new partnerships, and some phenomenal events. 

As the Better Bike Share Partnership team reflects on this past season, we asked two of our ambassadors to share their thoughts on the work they’ve done with Indego within their community in addition to highlights of the 2019 Indego Community Ambassador season.
