Kira Johnson (she/her) originally moved to Provo as a student at BYU. During her student years, she didn’t have a car and out of necessity was commuting by bike. She found a lot of mental relief from her bike rides and came to associate her commutes as a form of therapy. As she consistently commuted, she became aware of the lack of bicycle infrastructure and sought for ways to add her voice to those advocating for safe streets. As a result, she got involved with BikeWalk Provo and Provo Bicycle Collective. After volunteering with PBC for a few months, she was offered a position to coordinate programs. She ran the Women/Trans/Femme (WTF) Night and Youth Programs from December 2017 to May 2019.
After graduating from BYU with a degree in Geography, she moved across the country to Waynesboro, Virginia, a charming little city at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Shenandoah Valley. There she worked as a city planner for about 2 years.
Kira is excited to be back at Provo Bicycle Collective, a place that feels like home. She loves the Provo community and is stoked to reconnect with all the great folks in the area. Apart from loving commuting by bike, Kira enjoys cross-country skiing, roller skating, backpacking, bike touring, wearing sweaters, eating ethnic foods, gardening, and doing all things with her pup, Otis.
