John Gallagher

John Gallagher

John Gallagher has resided in the little-known mountain bike mecca of Cody, Wyoming for the last twenty years. His travels to more popular biking destinations have made him realize how good the riding is in his own backyard.

John is the Information Technology Manager at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.

A desire to protect and expand local biking opportunities has led to a second, non-paying, career in bicycle advocacy. John currently serves on the Board of Park County Pedalers in Cody.

John has two children and a dog that enjoys biking adventures as much as John does.

“The more people we have on bikes, the fewer problems society has,” John claims.

Jerimiah Rieman

Jerimiah Rieman

A Wyoming native, Jerimiah Rieman serves as Executive Director of the Wyoming County Commissioner Association, representing the state’s county commissioners before the Wyoming State Legislature, working collaboratively with the Wyoming governor’s office and other state agencies on local government issues, and providing outreach and guidance to county leaders.

Rieman most recently finished an eight-year stint in the office of former Governor Matt Mead, holding the position of Director of Economic Diversification, Natural Resource Policy Director, Natural Resource Policy Advisor, and State Planning Coordinator. He is currently pursuing a Master of Legal Studies.

Jerimiah has always found enjoyment on a bike. Although a family of little means, his parents fostered his love of riding, starting with a “Big Wheel” tricycle and later a bicycle local missionaries built from mismatched pieces and parts – narrow mountain bike handlebars, oversized road bike frame. His passion for mountain biking started while in college at Colorado State University where he earned a Bachelor’s in Natural Resource, Recreation and Tourism.

At CSU he met his wife Kristen, a Louisiana native, and by the grace of God she has fueled his two-wheeled lust. Their identical twin boys Boden and Potter, started riding before learning to walk. Together they have mountain biked throughout Wyoming, the western United States and Canada. When not riding, the family can be found in Wyoming’s great outdoors camping, fishing and skiing.
