Ivan Vamos
Board Member Emeritus Ivan, a bike commuter since 1965, worked for 30 years for New York State DOT, DEC and State Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. While serving as Deputy Commissioner at Parks, he helped the State acquire and develop more than 200 miles of rail-trails, Ivan Chaired the Task Force that planned NY City's greenway, and planned and implemented the first 20 years of the State's Canals Recreationway program. Ivan continues to advice NYBC, specifically working for inclusion of bike and pedestrian elements on major bridge replacement projects, by representing on-road bicycling on the State's Trail Council, and by helping with specific public policy issues.

According to one of our Founders, Ivan Vamos (current Board Member Emeritus), it all started with The Chain Gang, a group of mostly (bike riding) state bureaucrats (Lou Rossi, DOT; Dave Wilcox, DOH, Ivan Vamos, OPRHP) who began to meet monthly around 1990 to discuss how impending federal transportation legislation (eventually ISTEA) might impact New York State to support an expansion in existing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and activities.

To get an early program going in the NY Metropolitan region, Lou Rossi encouraged Ivan Vamos, who had not yet retired from the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP) and was regularly in NYC, to help form a bike/pedestrian advisory group for that region.

When Ivan Vamos was a young boy in Hungary, his bicycle was a prized possession - representing freedom, mobility and fun!
Unfortunately, this was WWII and the Nazis took away bicycles from the Jews. Fortunately for NYBC - which Ivan and other former state colleagues founded over 25 years ago - Ivan and his mother survived and made it to Brooklyn. Ivan quickly re-acquired a bicycle, which again took on those same liberating and empowering qualities. The Vamos Fund For Bicycling Development, with the help of NYBC, supports exciting bike shop/bike organization projects that enable immigrants and other new bicyclists get rolling and experience the same joys that Ivan did.

It was back in 2001 that (now Board Member Emeritus) Ivan Vamos and (then Executive Director for the first time) Paul Winkeller had the pleasure of visiting with the WCC Board to discuss road and infrastructure challenges facing their club.

Empire Trail - In the 1990's NYBC's Board (Ivan Vamos and others) played a prominent role in the identification and eventual designation of New York Bikes Routes (NYBR)through the state.NYBR 9is included in the grandEmpire Trail proposed by Governor Cuomo, and thanks the jurisdictional review process several decades ago the path is clear for this important bike tourism corridor to become U.S. Bike Route 9 and the first component in NYS to be a part of theNational Bike Route System.
