Graham McAteer

Fredericton, NB

Graham is a civil engineer with a passion for active and sustainable transportation ecosystems. He is an avid year-round cyclist who loves to promote the mental, physical, and environmental benefits of cycling. If you ever wonder where to find Graham, he is most likely on his bicycle commuting to work, getting his groceries, or doing maintenance and repairs on his bicycles. He cycled over 4,000 km last year and plans to beat that number next year. He lives and breathes cycling, from keeping up with the latest news, reading books, to analyzing the latest research reports on the subject.
