Rob Reno
Rob RenoPresident
Since he was but a wee lad, Rob has been cycling in some form or fashion. From tricycles to his first Raleigh BMX bike, when he took on the dreaded “steepest” feature in the New Mexico desert. He currently resides in Fayetteville with his wife and their triplet daughters after living most of his life in Phoenix and Chicago.Rob has ridden bikes in faraway places such as Castlerotto and Zanzibar, but considers Mt Kessler and NWA (OZ) his favorite places to ride. Most weekends you will find him, and the OORC volunteers, playing in the dirt somewhere. Also, rocks. Rob really likes rocks!
    David Godwin
    David GodwinVice-President
    A bit of a late-comer to mountain biking, David was raised on the Mississippi Delta and wasn't introduced to mountain biking until several years after graduating college and moving to Northwest Arkansas. These days you’re as likely to find him under the OORC tent at events talking to people about the IMBA mission, or working on a trail somewhere as you are to find him on a bike. Next time you see him, tell him to go ride his bike.
      HB Fink
      HB FinkSecretary
      He’s back! HB has returned to the board as club secretary after having previously filled the role from 2019-2020. He was also the rides coordinator when he rejoined the club in 2015. His mountain biking journey started over 30 years ago when he bought a Specialized Rockhopper. That path began with riding at Devil’s Den on the old Holt Homestead Road, BHT and Blackburn Creek. Since then, his tread has traversed many of the trails in the Land of Oz and beyond. During the past five years he has also served as a coach with the Fayetteville NICA Team and more recently with Buddy Pegs.

He works as an optometrist and has worked at The Eye Center in Fayetteville specializing in dry eye disease since 2007. Jonathan also spends a lot of time with his wife, Lesha, and his 2 daughters.

          Crystal Denham
          Crystal DenhamEvents Coordinator
          Originally from Branson, Crystal lives in Fayetteville and has always loved spending time outside. She commutes to and from work by bike almost every day and enjoys riding the local trails. Crystal’s first off-road ride was a cold one last January at Hobbs and she was immediately hooked. Her love for adventure and being on a bike made it a quick favorite way to play. Paved or dirt, She rides every chance she gets.
            Michelle Roth
            Michelle RothRides Coordinator
            Michelle is a recent transplant to NWA after moving from Texas in 2022. OORC has been her favorite group - and Kessler her favorite mountain - since day 1. Michelle started riding road in Wisconsin / Iowa and bought her first Mountain Bike in 2021 after moving to Texas. Although Michelle started by riding Downhill and Enduro, these days she prefers Cross Country riding. When the weather doesn’t agree with the trails you can find her in downward dog or planning her next riding adventure.
