Board of Directors


Martin Glinsky: Secretary

My wife and I moved to Sedona about 7 years ago from Long Island, NY. I've been an avid mountain biker since 1992, where I began tackling the trails and getting involved in bicycle advocacy in Nashville, TN. I became a member of Friends of the Forest upon arriving in Sedona and patrolled the trails on their behalf for about a year. I helped to establish the Red Rock Mountain Bike Patrol, a division of IMBA's National Mountain Bike Patrol in 2010, where I serve as chairperson. I joined the VVCC in 2009 in order to support the work of the VVCC, both on the road and on the trails.

Lars Romig: Director at Large

I am a lifelong Verde Valley resident. Since I was a small kid I have loved riding a bike. In my travels to "Destination bike areas" I have learned that the Verde Valley has the potential to be one of the best in the North America. Making sure this great experience is available to citizens, communities and visitors to reap the benefits of our much loved hobby. I hope to see the Verde Valley full of fit happy people living in robust cycling communities with world class cycling opportunities.

Dan Blaettler: President

Although new to the Sedona area, I have been riding mountain bikes for 25 years and road riding even longer. My primary interest is the development and sustainment of our beautiful red rock trails to meet the multiuser needs of riders, hikers, equestrians, and runners. To this end, I do volunteer trail work with the Red Rock Ranger District. Coming from the San Francisco Bay Area, I worked on annual Bike to Work Day events and other advocacy efforts to promote cycling of all types.

Kevin Adams: Treasurer

40 years after I first learned what a snow bird was when stationed as a young Marine in Yuma I turned into a permanent Sedona snow bird. I served two decades as a Marine and another two decades in the private sector. Shortly after my retirement from corporate life, I moved full time to Sedona.

Since joining the VVCC Board, I've focused on updating our membership fulfillment system, engaging sponsors and grant writing.

Pam Milavec: Director at Large

My husband, Al, and I moved to the Village of Oak Creek on a part-time basis in 2015, after retiring from our jobs in western Pennsylvania.  We now spend about half the year here and spend summers in PA.  I guess we’re snowbirds till we move here fulltime!  I’ve been cycling for over 20 years, including mountain biking, road riding and cyclocross.  When I’m not riding, I’m hiking or doing volunteer work with Friends of the Forest.  I love all this area has to offer, but especially the incredible beauty, great trails and sunny climate.

Mike Coyne: Director at Large

I am a retired Emergency Physician who spent his career at a trauma center and teaching hospital in Western Massachusetts. My wife Jamie, and I are transplanted New Englanders who eight years ago were captured by the beauty of Sedona. We are avid mountain bikers and hikers who enjoy volunteer trail work which we have been doing for years with VVCC and the Friends of the Forest.

I have tremendous appreciation for the trail opportunities we have and I am interested in the sustainability of our trail system.

I have years of volunteer board experience with numerous organizations nationally and locally. Aside from mountain biking and hiking, I enjoy spending my free hours dabbling in ceramics, watercoloring and metalwork.

David Biermann: Director at Large

Born and raised in the Silicon Valley, CA and moved the family to Sedona in 93. Been an avid Mountain biker since 2008 and have broken bones and scars to prove it 😊. I’ve been in construction all my life working with my father in the Bay Area and venturing out on my own to Sedona as a Project manager for a National Construction company. I decided in 2004 to open my own construction company called Biermann Construction and Development, Inc specializing in Commercial and Residential construction. Some of the notable project I’ve been involved with over the years is Nepenthe Patio Homes, Sedona city hall, National Bank, The Vault Restaurant, Sedona Visitor Center, Abundant Cultivation, and many custom homes over the years. Also, on the Sedona Fire Dept. Appeals Board and the Big Brothers Big Sisters Community Board.

I’m an avid believer in supporting local organizations like VVCC with donations/ volunteering (Pay to Play).

Looking forward to serving and supporting the greater Verde Valley Mountain Bike adventure!

Kaitlin Hollister: Director at Large

I'm the founder and creative director of Stand Creative Studio, a graphic and web design firm located in Steamboat Springs, CO and recently moved to Sedona on a part-time basis with my husband and two dogs.

I got my introduction into the bike world through downhilling, and have grown to love the challenge of going uphill on a mountain bike : ). I helped Routt County Riders with many of their marketing and design efforts, and am happy to help out VVCC!

Tracy Randall: Vice President

My husband, Jim, and I moved to Sedona full-time in 2020, although we've been coming to Sedona to mountain bike since the '90s. I spent part of my childhood in Phoenix and have fond memories of visiting the Red Rocks with my family. Sedona has always been a special place to us, so we're thrilled to be living here and want to get involved and give back to the area. We've seen what the VVCC has accomplished over the years, and I'm excited to be part of the organization and hope to bring some of my background in marketing and the Internet to continue to build & grow the VVCC.

       Zac Nasser: Director at Large

Ever since I took my first road ride on a road bike, I've been obsessed. It has dominated my life ever since. I got a job at my local bike shop and I knew I had found my fit where my occupation could be my love. I chased that love from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia out to Arizona, where I've spent my time growing the community around Verde Valley Bicycle Company. I've since become a capable mountain bike rider as well as a leader and problem solver in the context of the shop I manage. I love riding bikes and I love to share that passion with everyone I meet.
