2018 Executive Members




Paul Babin,  President

Hello to all past, current, and future members of Velo Cape Breton.  Although I had been a member for several years prior to joining the Board of Directors, it was only when I volunteered as Membership Registrar did I begin to understand the amazing work that this dedicated group does.  VCB Board Members regularly meet with Municipal and Provincial groups to advocate for better cycling conditions throughout Cape Breton Island.  They provide education courses on proper cycling to safely navigate our roads, and also organize and schedule a full array of rides.  All of this is done on a volunteer basis, because they believe in the cause, as do I.
I hope that all members will make a commitment to participate in, or volunteer to help, in as many cycling related activities as possible.
May all your rides have the wind at your back.

Vince Forrestall,  Vice-President


I am the Physical Activity Coordinator for Naturally Active Victoria County (Est. 2011) since June 2011. 


I have over 20 years of experience in recreation, sport and physical activity and officiating hockey (1991 Canada Winter Games) and soccer. 


If I’m not exposing my 5 1/2 year old Jenna to recreation opportunities, you'll find me hiking or snowshoeing to a peak. 


Fresh off Naturally Active's "Celebration" with 2 Time Gold Medalist & Flag Bearer Heather Moyse (2014) I continue to outreach, partner and collaborate for the betterment of the lives of our residents & visitors, including Velo Cape Breton.


My hope is to have a renewal of the municipality physical activity strategy for another 5 years (2016-2021) in 2016.  As a Member pf the VCB Board and Community Outreach for Cape Breton Region, I wish to build a cycling environment having residents and visitors of all ages cycling.

Britney MacNeil,  Member-at-large

Nova Scotia born and raised, I have always had an interest in healthy living and outdoor exploration, filling my time with walking, running, kayaking, snowboarding, snowshoeing, camping, hiking, backpacking, and exploring the Great Outdoors of this beautiful province and beyond.  I will always remember my first vehicle -- the bicycle I received in grade school as a child.  In July of 2013 I decided to become a member of Velo Cape Breton, following a strong desire to get back into cycling.
With a background and a passion in marketing and promotions, I hope to assist Velo Cape Breton with the planning and promotion of events, member services and other successes and accomplishments.  Velo Cape Breton is achieving great things for it's members and for the community, and my goals are to make these accomplishments known, and to deliver the messages of VCB loud and clear!  So please join us - both on your bicycle and at other events and initiatives - there's plenty of fun for everyone.
Here's to exploring where your bicycle may take you!







Andree Crepeau,  Treasurer

A bicycle for me has been a way to get places, meet people and see things wherever I lived.  It got my seven year old self to my friend’s house fast, my university self to class again fast, my post pregnancy self to the office fast and my retired self downtown, to the dentist or doctor or the store again fast.  And by fast I mean faster than walking.  Sure my adult self has always had access to a car, but only one in a multi driver household, and frankly driving in Sydney is in my opinion really aggravating.  Plus why spend 10 thousand dollars a year on a second vehicle when a bike can get you most everywhere in almost the same amount of time.  And getting there on a bike is just so much more fun.

So my interest in Velo is working to get better cycling infrastructure and to try and win people over to the world of cycling, or at least to add it to their transportation choices.
