Board And Staff

Larry Kelley

Board Chair

Larry, a long time resident of New York City, enjoyed cycling long distances as a youth. In his own words, "My bike allowed me to cycle though and explore the diversity of neighborhoods in my childhood city." Larry came to the OutCycling board with the vision of expanding the three key pillars of the organization; Fearless Flyers program, Pride Ride and Adult Division.

Christopher M

Christopher Mathias

Secretary, OutCycling

Christopher is a long-time New Yorker and cycling enthusiast. He remembers fondly riding his orange 1970s bike with a banana seat around the Phoenix, Arizona neighborhood of his youth. That bike provided not only transportation but freedom to explore long before he could hop on a plane and travel the world. Christopher initially came to OutCycling for two reasons: to build a network of friends who share a commitment to healthy activity and love for the sport; and as a way to train for the AIDS/LifeCycle 545-mile fundraising ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Thousands of miles later he is thrilled to join OutCycling’s leadership team and assist in growing the community and its mission.

Christopher has over 30 years' experience in executive operations for international law firms and currently works with the legal and compliance team at the San Francisco-based payroll platform start-up, Gusto. He lives in Queens with a senior dog named Lola and travels the world as much as possible...in planes and on two wheels.

Graham Weinstein

Co-Founder & Acting Treasurer

Graham, a life long New Yorker, first experienced the power of group cycling when training for and completing a 3-day 275 mile fundraising ride from Boston to NY. As a novice cyclist, Graham's love for cycling was born. In 2010, Graham together with his riding partner at the time created OutCycling, the leading LGBTQ+ cycling network for everyone.

As the former Communications Manager for New York Road Runners, Graham worked ten New York City Marathons and witnessed the power of bringing people together to push themselves, physically and mentally, toward a shared goal. Graham lives in New York City with his husband and 4 bikes. Read more about Graham and the early years of OutCycling here: Bicycling Magazine and AMC Outdoors.

Peter E.

Peter Eatroff

Operations Director, OutCycling

Peter has been riding since he was 6 years old, and it has been a consistent source of joy and well-being. His dad bought him a 1970 Schwinn Varsity when he was in the 7th grade and he has pedaled nothing but 70s steel Schwinns ever since. His favorite way to spent a weekend is exploring new roadways, getting lost, and then always finding his way home.

Peter joined OutCycling 5 years ago and has ridden and led countless rides since then. What he loves most about being part of OutCycling is introducing others to the extreme joy one feels while cycling. There’s nothing more gratifying than riding with someone new to the sport and watching them grow that same sort of love. His number one priority is ensuring that every rider on the road has fun. When he says, “Enjoy the ride!” he means it.
