Our Team

WhyABike? is a project by CyclePhilly co-creator Corey Acri and Tim Hoenig. We are doing this because we hope to make the world a better place for biking, which, we believe, means a better place for you to live in.  

Corey Acri



For almost a decade, Corey has been working with large institutions on collaborative teams that analyze and solve both complex technical and non-technical problems. Corey has done everything from serving New York City in strategic disaster response and planning efforts to assisting large institutions in delivering effective web-based products to large audiences as both an in-house product manager and outside consultant. He has a high-level understanding of product design principles and software development, with experience managing and designing apps and websites as well as programming in Java, Swift, Objective-C, JavaScript, PHP, SQL, CSS and HTML. Most recently, Corey co-created CyclePhilly, a globally recognized, award winning, smartphone app that is being used internationally to help cities build better bike infrastructure.

Corey holds a B.A. in Political Science, a  J.D. from St. John's School of Law and an M.B.A. from Drexel University where his studies focused on the bike industry.  


Tim Hoenig



Tim Hoenig is an accomplished researcher and applied scientist who aspires to greatness through experiential learning and innovative problem solving. He has been both a leader and servant to teams in support of regulatory compliance programs at the intersection of data, technology, and government regulation of pharmaceuticals.  Tim engenders a shared accountability that prizes collaboration over ego and purposefully prioritizes the customer (the patient, the end-user) because this precious contextual perspective is too often and easily slighted by business processes.

Tim holds a B.S. in Biology from Loyola University of Baltimore, a M.S. in Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance from Temple University, and feverishly consumes all things product, data, and user experience at General Assembly in New York City.
