Lead Bike Guide and Bike Mechanic
Born and raised Santa Barbara local boy. I grew up riding a bike and I was always enthused with how far I could go as a young kid. I got into BMX freestyle in the 80s, did competitions and shows while traveling around the world. After retiring from BMX I got into mountain bike racing. I did cross country racing for about 15 years. I’ve done a lot of off-road bikes touring in the local Santa Ynez mountains, which has helped my knowledge of the trails as well as learning the rich history of Santa Barbara. I’m excited to meet you and can’t wait to take you out for a ride. Whether it’s mountain biking or road biking I hope you're ready to hurt a little but in a good and encouraging way?
