My name is Caila Brown, and I am the new Complete Streets Program Manager for Georgia Bikes. Originally from Stony Brook, NY, I moved to Savannah in the Fall of 2007 to pursue my undergraduate studies at the Savannah College of Art and Design. There I fell in love with biking (and Savannah), joined the Savannah Bicycle Campaign, and the rest is history!
As an advocate in Savannah I have served in a variety of capacities at organizations like the Savannah-Chatham Mobility Advisory Committee, Savannah Development Renewal Authority, Open Savannah and the Savannah Bicycle Campaign, where I most recently have served as their first female board chair. In my work at the Savannah Bicycle Campaign I have developed numerous marketing campaigns, organized many events like the Midnight Garden Ride, and developed BikeSav, a comprehensive map and guide for bicycling in Savannah.
I believe that cities should be designed for all people — including people who bike, walk, use mass transit, and drive. My passion (and now job!) is to encourage cities in Georgia to make the necessary changes to prioritize people, no matter their mode of transportation.
I look forward to working with advocates and partners around the state in order to make Georgia better for people on bikes — because bikes make Georgia better!
