People - Kids on Wheels

Maya Goldstein, founder and Coordinator

Maya is passionate about cycling, education, and especially the combination of the two. She started riding at the age of five, and has never stopped since. Maya graduated from UBC with an MA in Human Development, Learning and Culture in the Faculty of Education. Her knowledge, experiences and interests are in early childhood education with a focus on play. She worked for several years as a substitute teacher in daycares of the Developmental Disabilities Association (DDA) in Vancouver. Maya gets around the city solely by pedal power, and in the last few years she has spent many hours in the saddle while cycling from Panama to Belize over five month and most recently she cycled in South Korean and Japan for three months with her husband and baby son.
