Cheryl Brinkman was appointed to the board in 2010, elected Vice Chair in 2012 and elected Chair in 2017. She describes herself as “multimodal,” as her usual means of transportation in and around San Francisco is bicycling, taking Muni, walking, and, on rare occasions, driving.
As a former chair of the Board of Directors of Livable City San Francisco, Brinkman was a driving force behind San Francisco’s very successful “Sunday Streets” events. She has long been involved with many pedestrian and bicycle organizations and committees as well as her neighborhood association including the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, Walk SF, the Market Octavia Citizens Advisory Council and the Duboce Triangle Neighborhood Association. When visiting other cities across the globe, she makes it a point to use their public transportation systems or bicycle.
