After moving from Minnesota to Montana 22 years ago Ron spent 10 years in Bozeman, galvanizing his love for mountain biking in Montana’s backcountry. He and his wife Marti spent time 4 years in Bellingham, WA before choosing to return to Montana and Marti’s hometown of Whitefish.
Within days of moving to our new home, Ron was already hooked into the local mountain biking community and looking to what the future could hold. He got to know the Flathead mountain bike community intimately while working at Great Northern Cycle and Ski for 3 years and eventually explored another side of the mountain bike industry with a career shift and work with Esker Cycles. He joined the FAMB board in 2015 and spent five years focusing on trails and advocacy within the organization.
Ron is truly excited about FAMB's future and the fantastic relationships the organization has built with the local land managers and all of the local partners. He looks forward to building on this momentum with our future work on the Taylor Hellroaring Project and is excited to help create and maintain these great resources we are so fortunate to have here in the Flathead.
