We all know that practice makes perfect, but what if you're not practicing the right thing? We're here to teach you the proper techniques and give you the confidence to go check out those trails you weren't sure you could. For us it's all about seeing every rider meet their goals and progress to their next level.
Forever an advocate of, "you'll never know if you don't try." This is the advice that I still give myself today. I believe you can always learn new things and that it's never too late! Mountain biking was one of those things for me, being introduced to it later on after riding motorcycles for many years. But the first time I launched down a trail on my bike I instantly I fell in love with the feeling of freedom it gives you along with the opportunity to challenge yourself. I completely immersed myself in the sport and made it my career having the opportunity to travel with a mountain bike training company. I've now ridden some of the best mountain biking destinations all over the Midwest USA and along side some incredible coaches. My experience now ranges from desert slick rock to dirt single track and flowing berms to rooty climbs and descents. I was so fortunate to have an amazing network of people to ride with and I want to share what I've learned so others can find the same joy I do riding the trails.
I still remember the day my dad gave me a giant push on my bike, riding without training wheels for the first time I went straight into the fence. Two more pushes and I didn't stop riding until the sun went down. Then through friends became re-acquainted with bikes as an adult and instantly had that same feeling again. Building dirt jumps, finding lines down the ridges of Redcliff and many road trips to the mountains later, I made cycling my career. For over 10 years I've worked in all aspects of professional cycling from sales gaining a wealth of product knowledge to the shop mechanic. I've learned so much about maintaining and repairing your bike as well as dealing with all different kinds of bikes from that. From grand fondos and multi day bike packing trips to enduro races, I love riding and want to give people the confidence to hit the dirt!
Our Local Bike Club
Medicine Hat is the proud home of a fantastic mountain bike club, the 670 Collective, which we aim to support as much as possible. They tirelessly work to help build and maintain our great trail systems as well as put on events like our Battle Creek Showdown every year.
