Gail Shafer

“Gail” and “outdoor adventure” have always been synonymous. From surfing to snowboarding, riding dirt bikes to mountain biking, Gail has always loved and valued her time in the great outdoors.  At the end of the day, her real passion is sharing her skills and experience with anyone ready to dive a little deeper into a new adventure.  Gail is proud to have inspired other riders to challenge themselves with new experiences. She knows that all those experiences on a bike and in nature can have life-altering and sustained positive effects on a person’s well being.

Favorite Riding Tip      

Make practicing bike skills part of your riding routine. It’s not only rewarding it can be tons of fun! Play a game of B.I.K.E (mountain bike version of H.O.R.S.E) with your family and friends or hit your local bike park.  I promise it will pay off the next time you’re on the trail!

Favorite Riding Partner

Gretchen (gjo) Garcia – Gretchen is always up for my crazy adventures, even though she’s an expert XC racer, she’ll flow me on low mileage jump line and rock garden rides with the excitement of a 10 year old!

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?

I’d live in Pine Valley, but spend every other month riding and surfing the coolest spots in the world!
