Welcome Our Director: Arleigh Jenkins

Bike Law is thrilled to announce the successful recruitment of Arleigh Jenkins as our Director.

Arleigh Jenkins - Bike Law Director

Many of you already know Arleigh by her former alias, Bike Shop Girl.  She brings more than a decade of marketing and bicycle industry experience to our Network. She started out in a bicycle shop at the age of 15, founded Bike Shop Girl — an online community to empower women in cycling — and has diverse experience marketing within cycling brands and in advertising agencies. Throughout her career, she has advocated for better bicycling at the local, regional and national levels.

Growing up on two wheels, Arleigh has experienced the spectrum of cycling culture from racing road, mountain and cyclocross to being a devoted cargo bike rider with her daughter loaded in the front of her Bullitt bike. She naturally lives and breathes the Bike Law Manifesto, and has devoted her life to helping people bike more and worry less.

Arleigh Jenkins - Bike Law Director

We have known Arleigh since 2011, when she joined us on our Tour of the Blue Ridge (that’s her on the 2011 Tour in the top photo) and spoke to us about her take on technology and bicycle advocacy.  We have been friends since.

Bike Law is a national network of independent bicycle crash lawyers.  Since our birth in Charleston, SC in 1998, we have grown to include lawyers representing cyclists and promoting cycling in 22 states (and more to come) and Canada. With this growth we needed a valuable player to take on the multifaceted position of Directeur Sportif, Administratif et de Creation.

Help us welcome Arleigh to our team!

A federal government agency is making a controversial recommendation to all 50 states that all bicyclists be required to wear helmets.   Mandatory bicycle helmet laws are a terrible idea.  Cycling as a form of recreation and transportation offers a myriad of benefits to the individual and the community as a whole.  An adult or child […]
