Nicole Guerrero

I am the Secretary and Youth Programs Coordinator with the North Okanagan Cycling Society. I love to do community development work through the Trail Ninjas Youth Programs and aim to enhance the mountain biking experience for young people by investing in them through bike and trail building skills. Youth are such an important part of our biking community. Oh and I also take notes at our NOCS board meetings

Mark Dowhaniuk

I joined NOCS seven years ago because I dream of the potential we have to make this a truly special mountain bike mecca. I bring some trail expertise when it comes to navigating the government. I love all aspects of trail building from the initial planning, through layout, all the way to digging.
