John White

I’ve been a member of BVC since 2012, having turned up for an open day and instantly getting hooked. I’m also a member of Gastown Cycling and race for the Racing Reds at as many road and track events as possible. Having volunteered on the ground at a number of BVC events, I wanted to get even more involved in ensuring that we can continue to enjoy this gem of a facility for years to come. Professionally, I manage an IT department for an information communications company and have a degree in business information technology.

Derek Ulrich

Derek has been a BVC member since 2012. After his first learn to ride, he went out an bought a track bike and membership. He’s also on the board of directors for Gastown Cycling. When he’s not on the bike, his real job is in Information Technology. Derek’s turn offs are smoking, rude people, and traffic.
