Oliver Wu

President/Membership Coordinator

Oliver Wu might just be the most organized, go-getter we know. In addition to being our Membership Coordinator, he has stepped up to serve as Interim Prez until we hold election in early Spring. After moving to Olympia in 2016, Oliver quickly established himself as a dependable trail advocate and with business sense to boot. It doesn't hurt that he can get shreddy either.

Ryan McCord

Vice President

On his first mountain bike ride age 16, Ryan learned two things: Mountain bikes are awesome and concussions are no fun. After moving to Olympia in 2012, Ryan plugged in to the sweet riding scene and sick trails of the South Sound. In order to support his costly bike addiction, Ryan works for the state legislature.

Brian VanNostrand

Communications and Media

Brian started building and riding bikes in 2008, as a commuting necessity, but only started mountain biking in 2014. Back home in Alabama, he served on the board of a now defunct bicycle coop where he helped run a community bike shop and organized fundraising alley cat races. In 2018, Brian joined the Olympia mountain bike scene and quickly got involved with FOCF. If you see him around, ask and he'll teach you how to do a track stand.

Bill Ryan

Down Hill Trail Lead

Being born and raised in Oly, Bill found himself with friends in the early 90's, riding Wedekind and Porter trails on full rigid loam slayers and after a long break, has found himself back in the woods on modern rippers after building a home in McCleary. Giving back to an incredibly special place is his passion when not doing home inspections to pay for expensive bike goodies.

Keith Michel

Grants Lead/Government Relations

A mountain biker at heart, but also known to spend time with curvy drop bars in his hands.  Keith knows his way around Capital Forest on both the epic single track and the gravel roads throughout the forest.  Regardless of which bike he is on, the pedals all go round and round the same.  He moved to Olympia during the summer of 1999 when he began working at FORMA construction and immediately took to spending time recreating in Capital Forest.  Fast forward 23 years of project management and tons of miles pedaling, Keith is excited to support the FOCF in his role with the board.
