2023 WMBC Volunteer of The Year
Being selected as one of the Volunteers of the Year by the Whatcom County Mountain Bike Coalition, WMBC, is a truly humbling experience. As someone who has been a member of the mountain biking community for many years, I am honored to be recognized for my contributions to the sport and the WMBC.
My passion for mountain biking has driven me to volunteer my time and resources to the WMBC. This organization is dedicated to promoting and developing mountain biking in the region. Through my involvement with the WMBC, I have worked with a group of like-minded individuals to build and maintain trails and bring new and exciting riding experiences to the community.
One of my proudest accomplishments as a volunteer with the WMBC was my work on the Swirlz trail. This project involved a small hand-picked team of volunteers who worked tirelessly during the pandemic to clear and build the trail, making it accessible to intermediate riders. Seeing the trail come to life and seeing riders enjoy the fruits of our labors was truly gratifying. You can read that story here.
In addition to trail building, I am involved in advocacy efforts for the mountain biking community. As someone passionate about the sport, I believe it is important to ensure that the voices of mountain bikers are heard and that their interests are represented. Through my work with the WMBC, I have had the opportunity to advocate for mountain biking at the local and state levels and to ensure that the sport is recognized and valued for its contributions to the community.
Being selected as one of the Volunteers of the Year by the WMBC is a testament to the dedication and hard work of all volunteers who have contributed to the organization over the years. It is a reminder that every effort, no matter how small, can make a difference and that we can achieve great things by working together.
In conclusion, being selected as one of the Volunteers of the Year by the WMBC is a source of pride and inspiration for me. I will continue to work to promote and develop the sport of mountain biking, and I look forward to the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others through my involvement in the mountain biking community.Swirlz on Trailforks.com
