Roots head coach announced as CORA Board President

July 6, 2023

The Cincinnati Off-Road Alliance (CORA) announced our NKY Roots Head Coach, Brian Bozeman, as their new Board President! Brian said, “The trails that CORA envisioned, designed, built and now maintain offer a wider community of users safe, sustainable access to the outdoors. Subsequently, their popularity has grown, even among non-mountain bikers. The benefits of not only our sport but also recreating outdoors are evident to us all. We want to share the positive impacts they have on the community at large and its people. […] Now is the time to elevate CORA and our vision to garner the attention it deserves – not because it serves the mountain bike community, but because it will benefit the entire region. I am honored to be the person to carry this torch and lead the way in this next chapter.”
