About the tour leaders:Rhonda Toohey: Rhonda is currently the Director of Policy Development in Edmonton’s City Planning Branch. She has led and managed a wide range of transportation and development projects at the City, where she has worked for over 20 years. Rhonda was responsible for bike network planning in her early days at the City and she designed some of Edmonton’s first bike routes along the High Level Bridge and rail path corridor. As a bike commuter she is a regular user of this route. In her current role, Rhonda is responsible for directing the team that will be developing Edmonton’s next bike network plan. 

Marcel Huculak: Marcel is a Senior Transportation Engineer at ISL Engineering with 28 years of experience in public and private sectors. In ISL’s Transportation Planning group, he is responsible for preparing transportation master plans, traffic impact studies, road concept plans, and detailed traffic and parking assessments. His practice is increasing emphasis on alternative transportation (transit, walking, biking, ride sharing and car sharing), as well as traffic safety. He is also a volunteer engineer on executive and technical committees of the Capital Region Intersection Safety Partnership (CRISP). Marcel is a passionate transportation engineer, who enjoys travelling regularly, either by walking, biking or using public transport.

Chris Chan: Chris is the Executive Director of the Edmonton Bicycle Commuters. Chris’s background is in engineering, but he has been employed in the non-profit sector since 2009, and loves every day of work. Over the years that he has been involved in supporting the cycling in the community, he has come to realize that how we connect the fabric of our urban environment (the natural, the built-outdoors, the indoors & the activities we do in all these spaces) is what gives a city character, and what makes it worth living in. While Chris works directly to support the use of bicycles, his goal is to help build a better city. The bicycle is an effective tool (just one of many) to connect people with their city. This work recognizes that cities must design for active transportation to nurture those connections.
