Cycling has always been a large part of Loretta’s life. She commutes to the Bicycle NSW office every day by bicycle – rain, hail or shine. She can be often found on her bicycle during the day too, dropping off or picking up the many things that an office needs.

Loretta’s role is to deal with all the financial aspects of Bicycle NSW, and like everyone at Bicycle NSW, anything else that gets thrown her way.

Loretta has been a member of Bicycle NSW for over 25 years and before coming to Bicycle NSW in 2005, she was the treasurer of her local BUG for 7 years. She loves being able to work for an organisation that is committed to making cycling better.

 Carlijn Kerdijk – Events Manager

carAfter moving to Australia from the Netherlands, Carlijn joined the Bicycle NSW team as an intern for our Gear Up Girl ride in 2015. Growing up in Holland where there are more bicycles than residents and an extremely enviable bike friendly infrastructure, Carlijn is an experienced rider who has been cycling since the age of 4. Her enthusiasm and cycling experience has played a vital role in the managing of our events.

Carlijn has always had a keen interest in exercise and sport, which led to her obtaining a Master’s degree in Human Movement Sciences, specializing in Sport Psychology. She loves to utilize her skills and passion by encouraging people to start riding bikes and promoting cycling as part of an active lifestyle. She organizes weekly training and social rides with friends to help build their confidence on the bike and to motivate and inspire them to love cycling. She thinks the easiest way to achieve a healthier lifestyle is by using the bike as a mode of transport. That is why you will hear her often say: “Look it up on Google Maps, you will get here faster on a bike!”
