How many years riding experience do you have on a bike (Any type: MTN, Road, BMX, etc.)?

My whole life? I don't remember what age I learned to ride but 27 years give/take.

Make and model of your bike?

My primary ride is a 2009 Rocky Mountain Element 70.

Do you use: 1. Clipless (Snap in shoe/pedal), or 2. Clip on pedals (Toe strap), or 3. Platform (Regular pedals)?

Shimano SPD Clipless.

Do you have any general mountain biking tips?

Take calculated risks and don't be too afraid to crash but for God's sakes wear a helmet, no one is judging you. Ride with riders who are better than you, it will push you to become a better rider.

Where do you usually mountain bike?

PQ and DM Mesa have been my go-to spot lately. I would really like to get with others and reclaim Tri-Canyons though, it has really great potential and is so close to my house!


I am a Fairbanks, AK native who moved from Seattle, WA to San Diego in 2010. I love all things outdoors but my favorites are windsports (sailing, windsurfing, kitesurfing) and of course, mountain biking.
