Nicole has been riding mountain bikes since she turned 12 and was given a rigid bike with 26 inch tires for her birthday. She’s been riding mountain bikes, and other bikes, ever since. Most of the time she can be found riding the trails in Maine, but she loves the trails in Oregon, Arizona and the rest of New England as well. She pursued mountain bike instruction after helping out a few friends with their riding and experienced how wonderful it was to assist them progress their skills. She’s worked with both kids and adults. She hopes to see YOU out on the trail!

Favorite Riding Tip
Find a way to accept your faults in how you ride. They are a part of your riding style. If you’re trying to improve your jump landing or log hop technique, take note of what how you’re going to change it, rather than putting yourself down or with negativity. Have fun and enjoy the ride!
Favorite Riding Partner
My 5-year old daughter Ellie who is riding an 18 inch bike already! She’s not excited about biking, yet.
How did you get into Mountain Biking?
I started mountain biking when I was 12 years old, and my parents purchased a bike for me to explore are camp roads on. The next year I attended mountain bike camp in Vermont, it was a chance to ride with other kids which really helped me like the sport more.
