Ryan BalFour is a Northwest native whose earliest memories are exploring trails on bike and foot in the Cascades and coast range of Oregon with family. Years of participation in multisport events and some good luck led him to Bellingham to be part of the amazing trail network and community. When not exploring with his wife and dog, Ryan is happiest throwing dirt, telling dad jokes and enjoying a beverage with friends new and old. Trails have shaped who Ryan is and the life he is grateful for. The freedom, fitness and friendship found on trail are something he wants all to be able to experience. Ryan wants to save the trails because he knows the trails save.
