Cyclists 4 Community’s Mission:  Safer and better cycling through partnerships with Boulder County communities and governments focusing on infrastructure, policy, and outreach.

C4C’s History Started in 2013 with Support for Boulder Communities Affected by Flooding.

The idea for Cyclists 4 Community started in September 2013, immediately following the devastating floods that left Boulder County, and especially the towns we love to ride in, in ruins. As cyclists, we felt that it was time to make a stand and help these communities bounce back. During our first year, we held 3 events, the Cyclists 4 Jamestown, the Fat Tire Flurry winter ride to Jamestown, and Cyclists 4 Lyons, which combined raised more than $200,000 to help the towns of Jamestown and Lyons recover.  Since that time, we’ve continued to partner with the community on a growing list of outcomes that benefit our communities.

Cyclists 4 Community’s sole paid staff person collaborates with Boulder County and other entities on Transportation Master Plans to create positive and collective outcomes for transportation infrastructure and policy.   C4C serves as the parent organization for Wednesday Morning Velo as well.

Joseph Vigil

Director, Former President

Joseph bought his first bike, used, in 1976 for $2.00. He rode that single speed — pink with tassels — bike up and down west Arapahoe Avenue for much of his elementary school life. Although not a native, he has lived in Boulder since toddlerhood. Since giving up the pink one, he has purchased a few more, and tries to ride every day, year round. Whether that ride is commuting to work, riding up Flagstaff before sunrise, mountain biking on a local trail or on an indoor trainer, he is grateful for the huge beneficial impact cycling has had on his life. After seeing the impact C4C had on the devastated communities of Jamestown and Lyons (where Joseph graduated from High School) he knew he needed to join their efforts and start giving back to the communities who have supported him all these years.

Ingrid Alongi


Ingrid Alongi started bike racing in Boulder at the age of 12 in the Red Zinger Mini Classic series. She joined the Zinn Women's Cycling team as a junior and eventually made it on the US Cycling team in high school. She raced full time for a year before heading off to college, where she rode with the CU Cycling team. After a long break, she came back to the sport as a master's racer primarily focused on track racing thanks to the Boulder Indoor Velodrome where she reconnected with many of her old friends. She won several Masters National medals including Team Pursuit, Team Sprint and Individual Match Sprints. She has also held two national records for Team Pursuit (once as a junior and once as a master's racer).

Ingrid has a background in software engineering and is an accomplished tech entrepreneur. She started a software consulting company, Quick Left, in Boulder in 2010 and started participating in some of the early Wednesday Morning Velo rides where she got to talk shop while participating in one of her favorite sports. She later sold the business to Cognizant, where she built a Boulder-based innovation team focused enterprise software products. In 2020, she moved to the investor side of the table at Stage Fund, a control-based private equity group investing in companies that have growth potential.

Thomas Kunstman


Tom has been riding bikes for as long as he can remember, working hard in the kitchen of the local hospital in Appleton, WI so he could buy his first fancy Schwinn bike as a teenager. He took that bike down to Madison with him where he went to college and then medical school, riding all over Wisconsin with friends and classmates. He taught all of his kids to ride and always looks forward to when they return to Boulder where they often find time to squeeze in a ride. Tom would ride most of the days of the year to work at the student health center in Boulder, yes even on the icy wintry days. When his local niece challenged him to triathlons in 2005, he began riding more seriously and figured he better learn how to get to the other end of the pool. Since retiring from his primary job as the medical director a few years ago, he has blossomed in his cycling with 10K plus miles in the past year. Besides cycling, two of Tom’s favorite words are Community and Connecting which make him a perfect fit for the C4C team.
