FB4K San Diego Staff
Michele Lambert, Executive Director
Michele is the owner of Moxie Event Management and is an event professional specializing in logistics and operations. She has worked with the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition on several events including CicloSDias, San Diego’s open street event, as well as Bike the Bay. She enjoys project management, organizing anything and finding creative solutions to any issue that arises. “I remember teaching my nephew to ride a bike and him yelling ‘I’m doing it’ when he pedaled on his own. I look forward to bringing that same feeling of indepedance and joy to kids around San Diego County through Free Bikes 4 Kidz.”
Rachel Wesler, Programs Director
Rachel is a lifelong cycle commuter and women’s empowerment advocate. She believes that the bicycle is a symbol of freedom that changes lives throughout the world. In 2018, after spending 10 years teaching bike skills classes to youth and leading long-distance Women’s bike adventures, Rachel joined the FB4K movement in her hometown of Eugene, Oregon. Moving to San Diego during the pandemic allowed Rachel to explore her new city as it moved at an unprecedented slow pace. Now that things are getting back to normal, she looks forward to connecting with organizations, making new bike friends, and ingraining herself in the rich outdoor culture that San Diego County has to offer.
Gibram Sanchez, Volunteer Coordinator
As a Mexican American growing up in San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico, my region has shaped me to find an interest in how communities are built. As a recent urban planner graduate, transportation and community building are my top interest in the planning profession. With our present state of affairs, planning professions are more important than ever. We need to have people with the right voices, backgrounds, and competence to at least start the conversation of what’s happening in our communities. I joined FB4K because I wanted to merge my passion of transportation advocacy and riding bikes. You can find me during the weekends shredding local trails or racing mountain bikes.
