& Marketing Director

Sara Studdard has been part of Explore Bike Share since its research phase and now serves as our Community Engagement & Marketing Director. In this role, she expands on the civic-focused process that initially determined the feasibility of bike share in Memphis.

As EBS moved from concept to reality, Sara served as Project Manager in her position at DCA and President of Explore Bike Share’s Board of Directors. She spent three years becoming expert in global models for bike share, from system planning to launch to operations, and led the community input campaign to assure that Memphians guided the design of the system. During this period, she also managed marketing communications projects for DCA clients.

Prior to her work with EBS, Sara demonstrated her commitment to further Memphis’ growth during nine years of experience with other grassroots organizations and worked with a variety of stakeholders including Mid-South farmers, neighborhood groups, non-profit leaders, corporate presidents, national voices on equity, and creative placemaking advocates.

Jon Pegg, Fleet Manager

Jon Pegg began buying, repairing, and overhauling bicycles shortly after college and quickly realized that cycling was his calling and passion. Before joining Explore Bike Share as Fleet Manager, he worked at the Shop Manager for our community partner Revolutions Bike Co-Op, gaining knowledge and experience in bicycle assessment, building, and repair as well as installing and maintaining bike stations.

Because of Revolutions’ educational mission, Jon’s role there built his aptitude to successfully and simultaneously manage a mechanic team, direct volunteers, teach community members, perform shop duties, and interact with retail customers – all vital elements of coordinating Explore Bike Share’s fleet.

As a native of Los Angeles who has spent more than two decades in Memphis, Jon has seen how riding a bicycle creates a community that grows a love for people, neighborhoods, and the outdoor spaces that shape our city, and he is excited to bring greater opportunities to see more in Memphis.
