Pedaling Minds

Pedaling Minds is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded by Olympian Mike Friedman. Our mission is to help every person have fun riding a bicycle with control and confidence. Established in 2017, thus far Pedaling Minds has helped over 1,500 children ride bikes. We believe riding bikes is a powerful and positive influence in anybody’s life. From individual confidence to special family memories, riding changes lives for the better. Yet many people don’t know how to ride a bike, or they struggle to learn and never really attain the confidence needed to make riding a lifelong practice. We specialize in helping riders overcome these problems. And we are excited to be in a growth and expansion phase!
Pedaling Minds has big plans. In the next few years, we hope to centralize our operations into a permanent location, create a series of satellite training locations, establish a digital platform for lessons, and create a training program for aspiring coaches. All our activities are focused on elevating our core competency: building confidence and the skill set to enable a lifetime of riding.

We are currently looking for a part-time Certified Public Accountant (CPA). This individual will work with our executive committee and in particular our Finance Lead to manage the day-to-day operations successfully. We are interested in individuals with local non-profit experience and who have a demonstrated record of successfully running financial operations and working with small and expanding teams. Additionally, our CPA will familiarize themselves with our existing financial procedures and ensure that the organization remains compliant with state and federal laws related to finances and taxes. Our organization is at a pivotal point; we are scaling from operating with 2-4 persons to an organization with 6 staffed departments, we are diversifying funding sources, and we are ready to execute a growth plan that includes new budgeting procedures.
The CPA will directly oversee our daily financial business such as payroll and paying bills, reconciling forecasted budgets with actuals, provide information to the Finance Lead for strategic work, and tracking expenses and budgets related to grants and donations.
