Background

Share the Road began in memory of OPP Sergeant Greg Stobbart, the husband of our Founder Eleanor McMahon, who was killed in a cycling tragedy in June 2006.

As our Founding CEO, Ms. McMahon worked to engineer legislative change in Ontario, unite cycling organizations from across the province and work with and on behalf of municipalities to enhance their ability to make their communities more bicycle-friendly. Between 2008 and 2014, Ms. McMahon championed advocacy efforts that have changed the cycling conversation and led to significant developments in support of cycling, including:

In June 2014, Ms. McMahon was elected as the MPP for Burlington. After her election, she resigned from her work with Share the Road. She now brings her extensive background in communications, government relations and marketing to her new role representing her constituents and to her work as the Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Natural Resources and Foresry.
