Jake grew up playing on bikes. An early start on BMX bikes graduated to freestyle riding, which led eventually to his passion for mountain biking in Colorado. He loves riding just about anywhere, with a true sweet spot for epic high alpine rides and desert destinations. Some of his favorite trails are Monarch Crest CO, South Boundary NM, Portal Rim UT, High Line AZ, and Troll Stroll VT. Jake loves meeting new people through mountain bike instructing and seeing folks progress in their biking skills!

I followed an older brother out to Breckenridge, CO. I learned to hill climb at 10,000 feet, just trying to keep up with him!
