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

Co-founder

Strategy/Product/Tech

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

Co-founder

Science/Data/UX

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.
