I am a MTB enthusiast, Bicycle Instructor Certification Program (BICP) Level 2 instructor. I have lead a weekly ride for MVD Mountain bikers locally for over 10 years, and am involved with all decision making for our 1,850 member club. I was the 2019 MORE/IMBA Ride Leader of the year locally, and a Shenandoah 100 miler finisher. My regular weekly rides usually include at least one 40 to 60 mile mtb ride, and I am a fixture on all endurance style events in the area. I am involved with Friends of Patapsco Valley State Park, local advocate for the park, and trail captain for a portion of the park (allowed to aid in trail maintenance legally). I see over 150 different faces through out the year at my group rides and lead skills clinics when time allows, and provide advice to any newer riders / help coach people on how to prepare for long distance MTB rides, and I am also Wilderness First Aid Trained.
