IMBA Trail Care Crew/Patrol Manager
303-545-9011 x101

IMBA is pleased to announce that Craig Brickser and Alex Riemondy have accepted a position as the next Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew, a dual position that will have them traveling the U.S. to deliver a full curriculum of trail design/construction and capacity-building education to mountain bike advocacy groups, land managers and other organizations.

Brickser and Riemondy bring robust backgrounds to the job. Brickser worked previously as a project manager for the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance in Washington, where he oversaw a staff of trail builders within multiple projects in two county parks. Prior to that he was a trail planning intern and maintenance technician for the city of Tallahassee, Florida. He also assisted low-income and underprivileged bicyclists with bike repair through Bicycle House Tallahassee. He holds a Master of Science degree in planning, with a specialization in land use planning.

Riemondy worked previously as a transportation planner for Fehr & Peers, a transportation consulting company, where she specialized in bicycle and pedestrian planning for municipalities.  Prior to that, she was a transit planner for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency as well as the StarMetro, the city of Tallahassee public transit system. She also volunteered with the Trips for Kids bike program and interned with the American Conservation Experience on trail development, fire prevention and invasive species projects. She, too, holds a Master of Science degree in planning, with a specialization in transportation as well as advanced studies in urban design.

“The opportunity to travel across the U.S. as the next Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew, working with communities, land managers, and riders to develop and enhance trail systems is a dream come true," said Brickser. "Our experiences on the trail have afforded us an abundance of exercise, friends and good times. Being the next TCC allows us to pay all those amazing experiences forward through our work—we look forward to continuing the awesome legacy of this program and seeing all that the country has to offer from the seats of our bikes and the Subaru."

Brickser and Riemondy will begin their two-year odyssey across the country this May.
