Michelle Peña is a certified Professional in Human Resources and her day job is focused on providing regional support within the long-term care and rehabilitation industry. Mobility and maintaining active lifestyle interests and preservation of natural spaces continues to inspire advocacy work for healthy communities, including (among other initiatives) walking and cycling trails. Michelle and husband Mark Peña founded Ciclistas Urbanos, a cycling group in the Rio Grande Valley, and helped focus several community efforts for passage of safe passing ordinances. Michelle is a lifelong cyclist since her early days riding the neighborhoods of Austin, Texas, and is thrilled that her six children also love cycling and hiking. Michelle first enjoyed being active with BikeTexas through membership and the Board term of husband Mark Peña, and looks forward to continuing his legacy.
