Our team of Board Members and Voted Volunteer Members are a mixed group of riders who were brought together by our passion for mountain biking — many have been biking for years while others just started. We look forward to seeing you out on the trails. But until then, below is a little information about each of us. If you’re not sure who to contact, you can always email info[@]evergreeneast.org.

 

Board & Volunteer Commitment Members

President Will Stone Portrait

President (Board)

Professional Engineer by day, professional kid at night. Biking locally since the 90’s, I also enjoy camping, fly fishing when I can, hiking with my dogs, and brewing beer among other things. I ride Beacon and Mt. Spokane a fair amount, and occasionally can be spotted out on my road bike. I love traveling to other biking destinations, but it’s hard to beat home. Keeping mountain biking in eastern Washington awesome is what it’s all about

I’ve been mountain biking for 15+ years and l love the sense of play and freedom it gives me. While I’ve been involved in local trail advocacy for a long time, my real love is coaching new riders in the sport. Locally I ride at Beacon but my favorite rides are in the backcountry.
