Bill is also the Program Director for the College Bike Alliance. In 2012 Parking & Transportation Services retained an independant consultant to assist in identifying ways to improve parking and transportation on campus. Among the early findings this study revealed W&M is a very bicycle dense campus. This characteristic allowed Bill to focus on alternative modes of transportation and how those could be improved to help reduce parking demand and congestion on campus during class changes and other events. Bill set out to review the campus cycling infrastructure and was able to quickly and effectively find many areas in dire need of improvement bringing together the first elements of the Bike Initiative under the purview of Transportation Services.  With the Bike Alliance and all of it's components housed in his department Bill is able to oversee, plan, and budget for infrastructure improvements, new programs, and enhancements to the cycling subset within the W&M community. Bill until recently just a recreational cyclist has started cycling more frequently, and often assists with campus led group rides.
