Bert Hill is a nationally recognized leader in bicycle safety, specializing in utility urban cycling, for people who daily use their bicycles as primary transportation for commuting, shopping, appointments, socializing, and exploring.

A life-long bicyclist, Bert has used his bike for utility for almost 60 years, although the challenge of riding city streets in San Francisco kept him away from commuting until the unfortunate legacy and chaos of the post-earthquake ‘MUNI  Meltdown’ period left few choices for reliable and inexpensive transportation.  He soon realized the high potential for this mode and set about for a career change from Bechtel to the establishment of Bicycle Commuter Services, specializing in education, video production, and expert witness services in litigation. He was recognized by the League of American Bicyclists with the 2009 National Education Award, and a year later with the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition Golden Wheel Award, as “The Advocate Who Launched a Thousand Cyclists”.

Today, Bert complements his work serving as chair of the San Francisco Bicycle Advisory Committee for the City & County of San Francisco, as a director of the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway, and Transportation District, and a number of other national, state, and local committees and task forces. In his spare time, he chairs the Golden Gate District (San Francisco) Boy Scouts of America, and serves as a voting delegate to the national scouting organization, representing the San Francisco Bay Area Council.
