As an advocate and organizer over the last ten years, Gerik Kransky has focused on winning environmental, public health, and livability campaigns in the legislature and at the ballot box. A bicyclist originally from Eastern Montana, Gerik grew up mountain biking sandstone flats and back-country single-track. Now a daily bike commuter, he likes to ride Mt. Tabor and Rocky Butte, and gets fired up about cross-town connections. When he is not volunteering for the Oregon Sierra Club or The Bus Project, Gerik spends as many weekends as possible surfing the cold waters of the Oregon Coast.
